Wow, that first picture is awful purdy. Can't wait to watch my system choke while attempting to render it. Smile

I know... it stinks.

I'm on a 3500+ AMD64, X850XT GPU, 1GB (quality) RAM and I almost think my comp sucks.

Heavy graphics engines don't make good games. Blah.

Keep in mind that its only a benchmarking tool, and one that projects the sort of tech you'd be expecting after 2 years of its release. I doubt we'll see anything in 3d mark 05 for a good couple of years, and we're only just starting to see the quality of 3d mark 03 in engines like UE3 and Oblivion

Cant wait to see it stutter by at 12 FPS.

You mean 12 seconds per frame, right?

You will not be able to run this thing unless your graphics card has its own nuclear reactor and facilities.

Pssh, who cares about framerate.
...
I never thought I'd say that about a benchmarking tool.
Personally I'd get it just to marvel at the orgasmic graphics.
