Partial precision has been a part of SM2/3 since the Dx9 was released. It's not a question of being SM3, but a question of precision.
SM3 requires FP32 to be Full Precision and anything lower to be partial precision. SM2 requires atleast FP24 to be FUll Precision. Anything lower is partial precision. Partial precision or Full precision, it's still SM3 or SM2.
3dmark2k5 is suppose to have options to test it in pure FP32 or Partial Precision.
