I must say that what nvidia has done is downright appaling.

Effectivly trying to pull the wool over the entire gamer community in the hope to make a quick buck.

They flipping hand crafted the PRE RENDERED culling routines to remove so much information.

What nvidia has done is invalidated the becnhmark, heck they might as well of included a prerendered mpeg of all the scenes and just stuck that in and culled the rest.

Ultimately dispicable and really is proof of my distrust of nvidia and in general corporations at large, Im sure ATi is no clean slate either.

Hypoicarcy comes to mind "we don't care about 3dmark because they wont include special rendering routines to make the benchmark look different and run different on our card"

"so we will sneak them into our drivers"
You are not your system specs.
