Windows Seven 7068 x64

I thought this post might stimulate some discussion but apparently not - however I am gonna give my two penneth.

Final conclusions - ATI are way out in front!? - Wut

Those scores suggest to me performance between Nvidia and ATi on both wddm1.1 and wddm1.0 to be statiscally insignificant. A +/- 5% performance difference is going to be unnoticeable in a DX game. For me it's a touch disappointing that the enhancements of wddm1.1 are not really worth talking about but at least the performance didn't degrade any.

Hopefully new drivers on RC might give us a few more frames.
