Nice, now i just have to win a sick computer from hothardware so this will be usefull to me.
Time to start the ass kissing.
sounds like to the right time to release that software and post some great scores @ HH, who is up for that challenge?
Won't be able to until I get the GTX580 bought and installed.
But i'm still using a 7300GT.. what a pity
Are you sure that's a benchmark? It looks more like an advertisement for Antec and MSi.
Will be be hearing another round of outrage from chipset devs, saying that FutureMark doesn't do things like an actual game engine would, and is therefore not a good representation of the relative power of their specific cards?
