The main thing to keep in mind is that benchmarks are artificial. They rarely reflect real world situations. PC graphics card makers take advantage of that a lot. They'll tweak their early drivers to do very well on certain benchmarks rather than focusing soley on real world performance, since reviewers tend to put a lot of weight on benchmarks. It's likely that something in imoseyon's kernel is interacting in a specific way with a specific part of Quadrant and causing a spike in the score. I don't think imoseyon is doing that intentionally. More likely, it is an unintentional side effect of something he's doing.. However, this is a great demonstration of how benchmark numbers can't always be trusted.Birthofahero said:Interesting ....thoughts?
