quote: First, Fudo (who will believe just about anything, and misunderstands half of what he's told) is not the author of the benchmark ..(blah blah blah).. as a way to dismiss (or avoid addressing) that claim.
quote: Second, tons of benchmarks use stock / public domain images that can be found on the web (does the name "Lenna" ring any bells?). Your point was...?
quote: Third, "screenshot" is not the same as saying "a 3D render". Lots of benchmarks include 2D tests, and there is no fundamental difference between running a pixel shader on a 2D bitmap or on a 3D scene.
quote: If, as you claim, you've "had your hands on tons of game code" (more than I can possibly image - whoah! you must be John Carmack's smarter brother), you must know that.
