    So, this is essentially a double precision benchmark? It is unfortunate that many consumer GPUs have artificially limited DP performance.

    Anyway, here's an old Fermi:

    Even if this means only API-overhead reduction, which is mostly a software issue, it's still a huge gain for the old generation.

    OGL already had its prime status during the heydays of the Quake franchise in the late 90s. Sadly, id software was pretty much the lone player firmly embracing the multi-platform API.

    Both solutions are way over due. Graphics APIs and digital display tech are both plagued by heavy legacy constraints that limits the overall platform (PC) potential.

    Well, not that PCI-E 3.0 is any bottleneck really. Why not put the excess bandwidth in good use and at the same time shave off few cents from the board's BOM by omitting the CF link.
