great, Dell, the people advertising the highest end P4 systems with TNT2 and gf2mx chips in magazines and slogans like "all i need is more power than my friends" or other such rubbish.
and then of course we have Intel's advertising schemes: Pentium4 with NetBurst architecture, it makes the internet fly!
the reason it matters is that these companies have influence... dont forget intel makes boards and intel actually has a far larger slice of the cpu market than amd... dell is a big seller of intel parts exclusively intel desktops)
so these things add up... ie.. give credible weight to the legitimacy of 3dmark03 as a legit benchmark...
its just the way it is...
