Nordic Hardware has posted an interview with Futuremark's Nicklas Renqvist. A couple details about 3DMark03 are covered. The interview also touched upon other subject of interest such as support for 64-bit computing and OpenGL.
[NH]: There has been some complaints that the CPU, RAM and MOBO influenced the scores too much, is this any different in the 03 version?More information @ Nordic Hardware
[FM]: As we have focused even more heavily on the Shaders in 3DMarkŪ03, the graphics card is more of a bottleneck than it was in 2000 and 2001. 3DMarkŪ03 comes with a separate CPU test for more in-depth CPU benchmarking.
