There are three general categories of performance for games. These categories are: 1) graphics, 2) CPU, and 3) impact of sound on CPU performance.
3DMark2003 measures performance in all three categories separately. Thus, as a gamer, I would know if I would require a CPU upgrade or a graphics card upgrade by comparing the scores I received to everyone else that cared to upload their scores to ORB.
the CPU test doesn't seem to be very good either, that's one of the things i've complained about.
from Smokey's results
CPU Test 1: 22.6
CPU Test 2: 4.4
CPU Test 1: 28.3 fps
CPU Test 2: 4.5 fps
