Yeah, I just edit my post as I decided to open the app to see if I'z just blind, turned out I was.
So now the question becomes ... how come I've never heard ANYone mention this on the boards, and why wouldn't Futuremark insist on one option or the other in terms of the standardized presets?
OP, were you running on Centered or Stretched?
Can anyone else confirm the same difference in scores running those two options? I'll try it myself, but I'm not on a 600-series so it's not apples-to-apples.
