Default Re: Far Cry Benchmarks - Shader Model 2.0 vs 3.0

Kinda late coming in on this, 9 pages before I even saw it o.o

Anyways, I'm just VERY surprised that there's actually a new technology out that is showing short-term benefits instead of having to wait for the long-haul, Pci-express, DDR2, Prescott, 939 socket amd processors. All of them that have come out in the passed few months have either taken a step back before they move forward, or show no benefit at all, but have much more potential. If any of the new techs would have shown almost no result with the first products that support them, I would have thought this would be it. Due to SP2 not being out, very immature drivers, and being just a patch instead of an engine that was designed around it. VERY pleasently surprised.
