Please dont flame peoples opinions in this thread, just vote Im going to try and do the same survey on Beyond3d and Futuremark to gauge opinions.

The word cheat means whatever it means to you.

Especially please dont just say this thread is a waste of space, noone is forcing you to read it.

Friendly bumps would be apreciated

Well that's a wee bit vague. And what are you hoping to prove with this?

Main objective really is to see how much people trust Nvidia, I mean EVGA implyed that Nvidia had resolved the cheating problem in 3d mark 03.

Secondarily is to compare responses from futuremark beyond3d and nvnews forums which should be interesting

I mean your definition of cheat doesnt have to match Futuremarks definition of cheating, nto that im implying that Nvidia neccesarily meets either definition

Not having any nVidia hardware to really test 'em on anymore and not having used 'em in a while, I'd have to say "YES!!!! MOST DEFINATELY!!!!" anyways as this is nVidia we're talking about and they seem to have the scruples of an alley-cat in heat.

If there is a way to cut corners and make themselves look better, nV will find it. ;)

Yes, they cheat. Look at 44.67 and 3DMark03. Heh.

No NVIDIA driver has zero cheats, some have removed some cheats, kept others, etc, etc
