just did the the rough conversion and it looks to me like it was around 21000 seconds at 12:09 EST which would equate to 350 minutes or a little under 6 hours. Possibly released later on today.

Edit: The people on the futuremark forums look like they pay more attention than I did and it looks like the first character in the countdown is an O and not a 0(zero). read their speculation at http://discuss.futuremark.com/forum/...apsed&sb=5&o=0

let the war begin! x800 vs 6800. this is going to determine which is better. 2.0b or 3.0

apparently in 3dmark05 pro theres a way to test the image against the directx 9 rasterizer (or somethin like that). you need the 9.0c sdk.

it would still be nice to see if sm3.0 is any good vs 2.0b

nope - I use 3D Mark for:

1. The nice pictures!!!

2. comparing driver versions

3. GT4 Mother Nature is fab for overclocking testing.

4. Its nice to see what your card is capable of - most games just dont get close.
