" We've known about the existence of Nvidia's frame metering technology for years, and its efforts to quantify the benefits of spacing frames out evenly, minimizing dropped and runt frames, for months. It was only recently, however, that the company was willing or able to show off the fruits of its development efforts.",3466.html

PC Perspective did this first, I think.  Nice to see Tom's is jumping on the bandwagon though.  The more people using latency based metrics the better I'd say.

The Tech Report did as well I believe, TomsHardware is good but they are sometimes abysmally slow. I do agree it's better than the previous methods of basic frame counting with FRAPS, but I'd rather see an impartial third party hardware tool, perhaps an external "magic eye" to physically count the frames per second displayed on a monitor.
