Not sure how this will be used in future...
Though. I seem to remember someone saying Doom3 will make good use of it.
When I start the palacemap (level3), my frames are dipping into the 20's with shadows enabled in 1280x1024 16 AF (performance) without, it stays arround 90 (which is my refrashrate as I play with v-sync.)
