    Looks like Nvidia's latest drivers have a profile for 3dmark06.....so it can't be that far away, can it?

    There's also mention of it with regard to fixes in the release notes for the latest ForceWare driver - As far as I've heard it's still alittle way off though... And Nick certainly hasn't sent me any tantalising goodies in a while! :p ;)

    Anybody check out the front page ;)

    http://www.futuremark.com/ - make sure you click the "Play full teaser" button on the bottom left side of the flash image.

    Exciting! I wonder what "soon" means though? A quarter? A month? A week?! :shock:

    I'd speculate much sooner than that. Say, soon enough for any reviewers to include it in their R580 articles ;)

    Yep, don't see the need to have the flash up for more than a week - that's more than enough time to build up the hype. Much more than that and it gets real old. Here's to hoping Futuremark thinks the same way I do :)

    If we do get it in time for the launch of R580, be ready for ATI PR: "We do XXXX marks more than 7800GTX!"

    Followed shortly thereafter by leaks that say: "G71 does XXXX marks more than R580!"

    Followed promptly by message board cheerleaders: "ATI/NVidia are cheating"! :smile:

    You entirely left out the "FM are cheating for [insert IHV here]!" threads.

    ... as well as the "You can't play 3DMark06 anyway" and/or "But no game uses the 3DMark06 engine" threads.
