Saw this at Beyond3d (http://www.beyond3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=167348#167348), thought I'd post it here.

"It has come to the attention of Eidos that an unreleased patch for Tomb Raider: AOD has unfortunately been used as the basis for videocard benchmarking. While Eidos and Core appreciate the need for modern benchmarking software that utilizes the advanced shading capabilities of modern graphics hardware, Tomb Raider: AOD Patch 49 was never intended for public release and is not a basis for valid benchmarking comparisons. Core and Eidos believe that Tomb Raider: AOD performs exceptionally well on NVIDIA hardware." - Paul Baldwin, Eidos

Seems that some folks don't want the truth to get out. I've got news for them: it's too late. And I will never buy an Eidos game for as long as I live. I don't think I'll buy anything from nVidia, either.

I'm glad that Valve and Gabe Newell have the integrity to not give in to this sort of junk.

This is just pathetic. nVidia must really want to turn customers away.
