Default nForce2 "First Look" and fly-by benchmark

http://www.nvnews.net/#1033473628

I see MikeC has a nForce 2 review up, very good! However, how about also testing some UT2003 gameplay benchmarks instead of only fly-by benchmarks? The fly-by benchmarks hardly puts any pressure on the hardware compared to some good UT2003 in-game action. The fly-by benchmarks is just another syntetic benchmark.

I'm interested in botmatch numbers as well.

Botmatch is horrible for benchmark comparisons. It's also too CPU-dependant, which is probably why Mike left it out of the review.

I'll be spending some time during the next few days testing on-line gameplay with FRAPS running in the background. Is there any particular graphics setting you would like me to use?

Exactly. Plus the botmatches run with variable settings and you'll get different results each time its run.
