yes that Snow looks so nice there.. they are using HDR to emulate the whiteness i think.

The other screenshot have the nicest looking water and lighting reflection ever made in a game or benchmark. Looks stunning. However while the sky looks good , i think they need to lower A LOT the clouds intensity ,because there is too much illumination there.While looks cool , Doesnt look realistic.

From the interview...
I donít want to spill all the beans about the next 3DMark yet, since the benchmark is not done, and there are some things that may still change. The minimum required shader model will be 2.0, but we will also have a couple of graphics tests requiring SM3.0 with support for FP16 textures and blending of these.
Doesn't that mean certain parts of the test will run on non-SM 3.0 cards ??
