most games released today are CPU limited in all situations unless you add FSAA or AF into the mix. and even then the great majority are still CPU limited.

regardless, 3dmark03 is a LOT more video dependent even with FSAA and AF both turned off.

unless the future is actually going towards the trend of becoming less CPU dependent, which i doubt. if anything games will stay just as CPU limited as they have always been, albeit CPU might be used for things like AI and physics.
