How long does it take for you to load the benchmark?

In addition, I don't think I have any luck with ATI cards these days since my HD 5970 shows TONS of memory artifacts on this benchmark + Unigine.

Pretty long loading time. And I have installed it on my SSD (if it matters).

I thought so. Am I the only one that finds DX11 benchmarks take a LOOOONG time to load? Unigine Heaven takes a good 3 mins on my test system and CoP takes about the same amount of time. Even Vantage loads faster than that...

Speaking of artifacts, isn't that the 2nd Sapphire card you've gotten in a row that might be RMA bait?
