In regards to this cheating. I'm gonna refrain from commenting. I didn't believe Nvidia when they said their anistropic filtering was a driver issue.
And sure enough they fixed it on the Nv30 series. So it's definately possible that it is a driver issue.
I cannot say for sure and I won't at this point because it'll be purely speculative at this point.
That being said, I wish Nvidia would just stick to their guns about 3dmark. If they just ignore the benchmark completely and focus their efforts completely on games. Even if the card performs badly in it. People will still see the Nvidia cards kicking in games.
Which will actually destroy futuremark's credibility, Rather than Nvidia keeping on and destroying their own credibility at this point.
