    He should of let it go. Its painfully obvious that while Rydermark does exist that image taken a year ago wasn't produced by it. Its like stepping back in time by about 5 years. It looks like it went from Direct X 9.0c to Direct X 7.0. However, I may be wrong and RyderMark might have originally been a benchmark tool for slide show apps and had to back down the quality once they decided to target the cpu/gpu market.

    Rydermark should be marketed as a benchmark tool for those into antique graphic cards. I would like to break out my old comp with the TNT2 and see how it stacks up.

    Heh. Rydermark is real? Color me amazed. But seriously, those screens look horrific.

    Using a beta benchmark in a review like that would be a no-no in my book, aside from it being all butt-ugly & slow. :???:

    It has been used in one HD2900XT launch review, if I remember correctly. Can't remember which one, though.

    What I remember, on the other hand, was that I said to myself: "Why is this PS1 emulator incapable of running Rapid Racer at full speed? And why are they using a PS1 emulator in a high-end GPU review anyway?"

    I guess the "benchmark" is dead then...
