Is this benchmark really fair?

Isn't gun metal written in CG and has optimizations for NV2x/NV3x?

I assume that the benchmark uses a non-optimized path for a fair comparison with the radeon cards, but then it doesn't show how the game really performs because it uses a standard path instead of an optimized one.

guess you can't make everyone happy.

Default I't barely dx9.

The default PS is 1.1 (hardly dx9 material), it's written in CG, and any CG capable hardware uses that as the rendering path. Any other card uses the none optimized path. Just so you know, Nvidia's official statement is that this game is what they accept as a gaming benchmark, as well as a dx9 benchmark. Curious that this game has less dx9 features in it than 3dmark03. If this were a complete dx9 game/benchmark, a Gforce Ti 4600 wouldn't be able to run it. Seems to me that since it is capable of running it, that this is (by Nvidia's own definition) not a true dx9 benchmark.
Feel free to argue this point with me, I'll just quote Nvidia's own press releases to back me up.

dx8, dx9,cg?? I don't care..
i much more enjoyed gunmetal than 3dmark
and gunmetal benchmark number gives direct gaming
performance data.
that's all

ps.
It think that games only run on fx and radeon 95xx or above
will not be released in 7years.

GF256 was released in 1998. (maybe wrong)

as far as I know, there is no game that doesn't run on GF256

and D3 and unreal will be most popular game engine.

I dont wanna argue with it. just my humble opinion..

I'm not guru of 3d ...

point is dx8 hardware will longlive

dx9 hardware supports dx8 pixel shaders and what not... as will dx10 and so on so forth.. so in a way no.. dx8 hardware will not fail to support stuff all of a sudden
