Nvidia and ATI do spend time optimizing their drivers for 3dmark so what???
It's not that 3dmark sucks, its that drivers get optimized for increased performace for the benchmark but the performance of games doesn't improve (not with the last dozen or so det relaese anyway) I personally have no prob with 3dmarks etc., I paid for a video card so I can play games at full tilt with no issues, etc, who wants to spend serious cash on a card only to get home and find that while the benchmark ran just fine, that awesome game (s) aren,t because of the driver /game/hardware are having compatibility issues. That's always a nice feeling right? Now your thinking great X amount of money for this. Nice.
