    It looks like the Rydermark benchmark is just around the corner - the Inquirer brings us some screenshots:

    A single Geforce 8800 GTX, G80 card under Windows XP and dual Athlon FX 74, Quad FX PC scores 217.11 in the test:

    And lastly, a new video has popped up (uploaded onto Fileshack by PC Perspective). It can be downloaded here.

    I believe this was the same company that called Nvidia out on the use of 16bit forced driver in the 7800 series. All for a higher benchmark, to give false higher performance in the 3D series over ATI who was using 24bit.

    Exactly the first thing I noticed. It's nice to brag about specs, but if 75% of the cores aren't utilized it's rather pointless.

    I noticed that multi-threading was disabled in that test, I wonder why, and I wonder how much it would have affected performance and the final score.
