Default I found some interesting info about Aquamark3

I was looking for another thread to post this in but i could not find one.

Anyway.. I had been trying to Figure out how the 5900U could be so competative with the 9800pro in this "Modern" Benchmark. Then I found this..
30 PS 1.1 Shaders

5 PS 1.4 Shaders

4 PS 2.0 Shaders
That is the actual count of the type and Number of Pixel shaders used in the Benchmark. Which of course ends up making sense why the Two cards peform so Closely together.

Which brings me to a little Side Question. Doesnt it seem a little odd that Nvidia is not Screeming about this benchmark for the same Reasons they hammered 3dmark03?
