I never did understand this. It may be a silly question, but why can't the 3DMark folks create a score that is relative to the screen resolution. They can make all these fancy tests and make it all look good, but they can't make a consistent scoring scheme? They should at least provide the option of creating a weighted score. It would make the whole 3DMark thing so much more usable and universal.
I guess after years of beating on 3D hardware they should now a little bit about the relation between resolution and performance. And they should know and take into account that not everyone is capable of running at 1280x1024 natively.
But then again, I may be completely wrong and make a fool out of myself
