Default Re: All 3dmark05 test to utilize SM3.0

this is what im trying to say:

"If FP 16 is going to give the same image quality results as FP24 and up, then that would be a clear advantage for Nvidia hardware if they are allowed to use mixed mode. Also Because ATI only supports up to FP24 as of this time, you can't develop a shader that would require FP32 to retain full image quality on ATI hardware. So FP24 by default has to be the standard precision.

I guess this does make it quite difficult to come up with a fair and unbiased benchmark."
