Someone started a thread on this forum before the ET article was published stating that they were seeing pixel smearing in 3DMark.
Plain and simple, whether you want to call it a cheat or an optimization, Nvidia boards are not rendering this synthetic correctly. The human eye might have a hard time detecting this, but it's there nonetheless.
