Default Re: Futuremark lays an egg.

I think they are making a big mistake by making this a 'pay to use' benchmark. People aren't going to pay and therefore we will stop talking about 3dmark soon enough is my guess. As it is you don't see 3dmark06 even included in many of the reviews for new graphics cards anymore.

I agree with others here that I'll keep using the built in benchmarks for Crysis which totally stress the hardware with DX10. At least when I paid for Crysis I get a fun game to go with it and the benchmarks are very cool to watch!
