I agree that graphics card companies shouldn't use maipulated 3dmark scores to sell their vgas.
But you're throwing the baby out with the bathwater if you insist on expunging futuremark from the soil of mass media publication.
I've taken the steps to curtail this manipulation by not selling nvidia VGA's to my customers and I've written a few emails to them using analogies from my own buisness (the other one) regarding their actions.
Who's to say that even if a new benchmark takes the place of 3dmark that nvidia won't manipulate it?
There needs to be more solid benchmark guidles but the companies that blantantly cheat need to be "black listed" or the guildines are useless.
