i really dont think current hardware is up to the task of DX10 3dmarking very well yet.

considering one massively oc 9800GTX and a Quad at 3.6ghz just sees around 60fps average over the game tests on 3dmark 06....

but ill gladly try it :D for free that is...

My guess is that the licensing will be the same as PCMark Vantage. 1 run for free only - then purchase required.

I might get 20 fps on 60 x 60 resolution on my gts :rolleyes: i think it will be a few years before we see high fps which is good, because its designed to test future cards. :toast:

No, it doesn't support dx10.1 and 64 bit and the dx10 support isn't even complementary.

I won't run on my x1950xtx's, so no point in sitting through a 450MB download.

That sucks that it is one time only, or pay. Guess it will be one bench I dont bother with till they change their system back to how all the other 3dmark's are.

:shadedshu Greed...pure greed...

i will say this before anyone does it: if you wish to discuss piracy, cracks, or keygens/serials - keep it in PM's.
