i don't think anyone is contesting that 3dmark03 is a video intensive benchmark. it is. and the results show that it is very clearly without a doubt. they are contesting that it shouldn't be, since that is not indicative of a realistic gaming experience.

hence why it is a SYNTHETIC benchmark...

seeing as dell has adopted it and as intel has indicated it seems to like the benchmark also... that a pretty large chunk of the pc market right there intel as producer and dell as distributor...
