Considering how much a lot of hardware costs, I'm not sure how far you can complain about having to pay for a benchmark. IMO, they should start offering free copies with new hardware purchases. I believe Asus was doing that with their RoG mobos at one point.

I quite agree, those two resolutions are close enough that they can be compared. But I mentioned it because the 3DMark06 tests in this site's reviews are only done at default settings. Granted, it's the only settings most people have access to, but even 3DMark06 scores start to drop pretty quickly once you start adding eye candy. And virtually any bench will start to depend more on the CPU as the eye candy starts to disappear, whether it's synthetic or game-based.
