I do blame nvidia more than the other three.
I guess it wasnt ATI"s fault when they spent more time optimising for 3dmark2001 on the 8500's release than actually getting games working? Have any doubts?
Check out early 8500 previews for 3dmark, Then check out ship date and actual games. ATI is just as responcible for putting futuremark where it is today as Nvidia is. This is an ongoing thing. Both Companies know how much 3dmark sells cards, So Does XGI, So Does SiS, So Does power VR,
Who do we blame for putting so much value in 3dmark? Nvidia? 3dfx? ATI? XGI? SiS? It all starts somewhere, Futuremark/Madonion would not be where it is today without the support of Nvidia, ATI and other players supporting there benchmark, Spending many man hours making sure all variations of it have ran well.
