We've had a few people asking about why their results for the 3D complex test don't match the frame rate displayed while the test is running.

If while the test is running there is some red text saying "VS 2.0 and PS 2.0 not supported" this means that the test is running without Vertex or Pixel shader 2.0 support. Because of this the video card is actually doing less work than a card that does do these things and attaining a higher frame rate. To compensate for this we then penalize the frame rate when reporting the final score.

Most people will never encounter this as pretty much any new card these days will support these features. This will only apply to very old videocards.
