Is 3DMark06 Really the "Gamers Benchmark" ?

@ 2006/01/19
3DMark is no doubt one of the most popular benchmarking programs in the world, with everyone from newbies to power-users running and testing it on their machines. The vast majority of hardware sites incorporate this ubiquitous application into their video card reviews, and no PR blurb would be complete without an anticipated 3DMark result figuring central to the report. Many people love this small program that tells you how powerful your graphics hardware is, or alternatively if you need to spend hundreds of dollars upgrading your components

I expected a way better article with that title. Just goign after the lack of OGL tests isn't cutting it.
