Cool, yeah I didn't mean to imply that you guys didn't "get it". I've just seen about 4,000 threads on this topic spin out of control into complete garbage so I just wanted to say my piece being a bit jaded as I am on the whole topic.
I tend to agree that the biggest benefits we'll see (at first anyway) are going to be related to DM and instancing.
