"The Doom III benchmarks were instigated by Nvidia, using software provided by Nvidia, under the supervision and guidance of Nvidia. In at least one case, they were actually conducted at Nvidia's labs. Currently Doom III is both unfinished and unreleased. As a benchmark it is completely meaningless at this time. When Doom III is finished and released publicly, our drivers will certainly be tuned for optimal game play."
I was gonna say something, but Reever2 said it muchly better.

What he said.
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
