    DOT3 Bump Mapping

    First of all, what is this? Second, whenever i run 3dMark, i always get the crap beat out of me in this one category, is there any particular way to increase the performance of just this one measurement?

    No.

    And that is exactly why it is useless to compare systems with these 'look good' but synthetic benchmarks.

    The same way that the really nice nature scene is in the demo and somewhat/somewhy isn't in the benchmark for 99.9% of users. [3dmark2001]

    Don't sweat it. Ask yourself - does my machine do what I want it to? [except wanting DOT3 bump mapping!]
