Default Re: 10000 points 3DMark03

bah, this is at least slightly worthy to mention...

I know it was of course a much bigger and much more consumer appreciated thing when 10k was broke in 3dmark01 by the GF3 era...

This time, it's pretty much a footnote, yep a footnote... benchmark program makers, take note please.

but heck, I don't really hear reviewers (myself included) clamoring for a better benchmark program... it's a beast which showed it's ugly face only after trust and praise were doled out, expectations had risen, and a programmer's niche was born...
