Another thing.. NVidia isn't all speaking bullshit I think.
I've seen nicer things in demo's and games then, ie, the part where that girl ignites her sword in the Benchmark. Yet that part had so low an fps even though games with similar visual quality kick ass on my system.
but wether it looks good to you or not is compleatly unimportant, it is a benchmark. for all it matters that flameing sword could have been a steaming pile of dog dropings and as long as they rendered useing the current directx codebase then the benchmark serves its purpose.
also, presonaly i think that sword looks absolutly stunning for the few moments i acutaly get a reasonable framerate to enjoy it on my top of the line 9700pro. i rember when 3dmark2k1's nature was exactly the same on my gefoce to its knees as well.
the only point nvidia has on this issue is they are not going to stand by a benchmark that shows how they have laged behind industry standerds because according to them it is not the directx board but solely nvidia that sets those standards. they are wrong.
