It's actually a dumb move on the company's part. They took out a good percentage of potential sales by excluding xp users.

Then again, odd's are, people smart enough to stay away from vista are also smart enough to not give two sh*ts about a benchmarking tool such as this.

I don't think it's all that terribly bad but I'm not paying for a benchmark tool, there's just too many free ones to be had. I can see if you're a reviewer or really really into over clocking buying a benchmark but I wonder how many people will actually purchase this thing? Seems like material to me.

I don't think the engine is good enough to attract much attention from serious developers.

Unless its cheap...

But still, humming along at 7fps in game test 1 on a system that'd cost about $1500 brand new isn't exactly a good advertisement for the game engine. Developers need engines that scale with hardware to bring in more users. Whether this engine can or not, I don't know... but if it runs like ass and doesn't look impressive on my system, its just going to be worse on most other systems.

I know it's not a big deal but it for some reason really bothers me when an app installs that stupid aegia driver crap on my computer like Vantage does. It just bugs me to no end.

You can disable the Ageia driver install when installing Vantage. Just do a 'custom' install.

I agree with the OP, but I personally saw this coming a long way off, look at my previous posts. What stuns me is JUST HOW FAR this benchmark fails to reach the previous 3dMarks. Only 2 GPU tests, too.

BTW, I liked Future Crew, I've tried out every single 3dMark, and I used 01 and 03 extensively, I registered 3, 5, and 6 (even though 6 was a big step down, but not as bad as this one). Of course I haven't even tried this one, I don't have a DX10 card, but I've heard and seen more than enough now.

I think they are making a big mistake by making this a 'pay to use' benchmark. People aren't going to pay and therefore we will stop talking about 3dmark soon enough is my guess. As it is you don't see 3dmark06 even included in many of the reviews for new graphics cards anymore.

I agree with others here that I'll keep using the built in benchmarks for Crysis which totally stress the hardware with DX10. At least when I paid for Crysis I get a fun game to go with it and the benchmarks are very cool to watch!
