Their visuals never warrant the frame rates you get. Games with better visuals have better fps. They need to take a different approach than slamming you with a ton of overdraw or other "invisible" things that kill the framerates.

IMO, A brand new 3DMark should always stay above 30 FPS on a 1 year old "mainstream" card (In this case, a 9600XT or FX5700 Ultra).... then make the score go from there. Anything that dips below 30FPS would FAIL the test (No score for that portion of the test).

They need to quit using overdraw and crap to bring down the framerates and do it purely on the visuals!

Oh well... that's my 2 cents.

Yep, same here. I think we're in the minority though.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

I dont know what its trying to spell,

However I think they may release it on the 30th just for the HL2 refrence!

I mean any game that gets released on September 30th will have comical value.

Also, on an unrelated note, woudlnt it be funny if id changes their offical responce from "when its done" to September 30th

Under 2 hours till the next letter. Soon we will find out if its indeed an N or not. If it is a N than I can say with 100% certainty that it is indeed spelling out Owned.
