Still, with driver updates, we'll have to see if it really does make it worthwhile.
I strongly disagree with this method of benchmarking. While it would give a more realistic approach, each card would experience something different making the results irrelevant and inconsistent. I think the way everyone else does it (including SKYMTL) is the best and most accurate approach by a long shot.
