looks too lightweight, but that would mean it's good for older/slower computers

though i only just tried the gfx test, 900fps 1920x1200 4xAA

i'll run it & post a score, also have a laptop with 570m

EDIT: well that sucks... gpu test is windowed in the actual benchmark, being a 4870x2 user that means no CF & i'm in idle clocks instead of 3d clocks

https://novabench.com/view/365751 here's me, i want to see the scores of my athlonxp+x800xtpe & p4+9800pro, now that would be interesting

also i HIGHLY disagree with measuring 'partition capacity' if it's changing the score :mad:

I also would question the Primary Partition Capacity, I have 223 GB RAID0 C:/ drive, how is it possible to get 466 GB from that?

Novabench USED to be good. Now you have to pay $35 YEARLY, just to see the results of other computers and or compare results. And you have to login with an emailed code every single time. It totally sucks now. I paid for a license back in September, they changed up to their new format last February, now I have a suck regular account, can't compare or look at anything else, and it automatically posts your results. Screw Novabench.
