By the same logic that some of you are using to say doom3 will be useless for benchmarking you should also be saying any numbers in any review that exceed the refresh rate are useless as well...

At a refresh rate of 85, any framerates above that rate cannot physically be displayed -they are written to the frame buffer and discarded...

StealtHawk brings some common sense to the rescue, how many of you believe your rig is going to be able to hit a consistent 60fps in doom3 at say 1280*1024 with 4xaa and 16xaf applied ? I can answer that quite comfortabley with NONE....

To take it a step further, what good does it to do to see quake3 benchmarks with card a at 400 fps and card b at 380 fps ? Once again the answer is none unless you want to get into an argument over whose card can throw away more frames...

If anything we may finally have a benchmark where the numbers are relative...
