    yeah it does. as others have said...... why doesn't Futuremark make freakin games for how beautiful their benchmarking apps look. i'd LOVE to play the game that they used for the Battle of Proxycon demo or whatever it's called from 3dm03 and 05. Honestly i'm wondering how much better it has gotten in one year. don't know how it could have gotten THAT much better. i mean yeah... it says it now also tests HDR features too..... but don't see how that would drastically cripple systems that even get like... 8k in 05.

    Then again....... should be GLAD futuremark don't make games. then it'd be like... "WOW does that game look GREAT!!! too bad i have to wait 2 years to be able to play it at a reasonable framerate". Did i read the one part right though..... that it said this one actually has a playable demo?

    I'll nab it off newsgroups...usually the web outlets are overloaded with releases like these. I hate new 3dmarks, though, not because of the product, but because it makes me sad to know how outdated my system is about to be.
