ya right. of course it's not just to fix bugfixes, that's why we see such enormous differences in speed from driver to driver. NOT. lol. well at least they can cheat in 3dmark and inflate their scores with each release.

on what? procedure calls not used in games? there has been developer after developer that has basically spat on 3dmark as a benchmark claiming the tests that are run are not real world tests. there is no better test than actual in-game tests. now if testers had a brain and tested with multiple grades of machines rather than testing with power horses that 3/4 of the gaming community doesn't have.. then we get even better results.
