Good perspective and I find meself agreeing with you over here in this thread too.

3dm2k3 is meant to stress tomorrows freaking rigs, of course it's gonna run like sludge on todays gear! nVidia is just whining because it shows their current cards weekness, they did the EXACT same thing when 3dm2k came out.
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
