So basicly they are spelling out OWNxx

and every day when the counter ends they eventually put a new letter, and each countdown lasts aprox 1 day

So if we can extrapolate the word they are spelling (if it is a word) then we can predict what day it will be released on.

As many has stated before the current guess is 'OWNED' and that would Lead us to the 28th for its release date.

Anyone have any other word suggestions they could be spelling so we can try to figure a diffrent date?

100,000/60/60=27.7. So thats about 28 hours a letter, not 24.

It's really gonna suck if it spells OWNEDBYFUTUREMARKSUCKERS. :P

Hmmm no E, it D.

I think I figured it out, it will need to complete the countdown with letter A, I guess the next letter after D will be Z in backward and then after Z, it will be A in forward. That will make it on around Wednesday to download 3DMark 05.

It's no different than what ATI and nVidia have been doing for their last product releases. Anyone remember all the hubub leading up to the NV30 launch? It was insane.

Ah, the mystery solved, and it makes perfect sence...... Download, bascily the contdown dose go for about 27 hours, however it dosent seem to start a new exactly when it should.

But if it spells out download, it means 4 letters left. Witch means October 1st. Makes sence kinda.

I agree. Enough hype. Just give us the date it's going to be out and be done with it.
