    I saw this while browsing around on some of my old, OLD files on my extra hard drives. I wondered if it would run on Windows 7 x64 and with my brand-spankin' new HD 7970. Man, does it ever!

    I remember running this app back in the days when I had a, I believe it was, 8500, 9600, and HD2600XT.

    You can still download this file from Guru3D. Without a license, it will run a default test. Here is the result on mine...

    Here is where you can download it if you're interested...

    LOL. I always run AM3 whenever building a new system, just for kicks.

    That is on 8, and here is my previous score on 7

    Why the drop in GPU? Need to re-run at some point.

    BTW, I'm surprised it ran out-of-the-box for you. There is a patch that has been needed since, what, Vista?

    I was kind of surprised it ran straightaway, too. For the demo option I set everything to its highest setting. Looks great for such a "old" benchmark.

    Not sure I follow your questions? Drop in GPU? Who needs to re-run it?
