Which out of the 5 rendering paths did the nV30 use? What path did the R300 take? Did you happen to really read the .plan file by JC last month?
I used to mention once or twice years ago how games may yield misleading results. I used Quake II as an example back then.
Today, JC mentions "paths" in his .plan making it obvious that coding for specific video card can be done to boost performance.
And such games (alpha, beta, or final retail) can not be reliable benchmarks.
