    great so now instead of needing dual gpu's and a dual core cpu to get a decent score your physics will also factor in?

    seems like abuncy of marketing bs to me, such as the fact that the need for dual gpu's and dual core cpu's really doesn't factor so much in most games. lol

    How can it be "un biased" if all the major stakeholders are working with futuremark to provide a fair testing platform? there is no such thing when you have so many partners and before you know it some will drop out if the benching does not favour their particular product in the score stakes and then the likes of AGEIA will be telling us that to acheive this level of performance that futuremark are testing we will need add on cards.....ohhhh and who makes them?????
