Copy from Futuremark's report:
Our investigations reveal that some drivers from ATI also produce a slightly lower total score on this new build of 3DMark03. The drop in performance on the same test system with a Radeon 9800 Pro using the Catalyst 3.4 drivers is 1.9%. This performance drop is almost entirely due to 8.2% difference in the game test 4 result, which means that the test was also detected and somehow altered by the ATI drivers. We are currently investigating this further.
one is a legitimate bug.
Gotta say it, nice job to futuremark for catching both of 'em (if ATi's is an actual cheat, I was joking 'bout with the legitimate bug bit.
) and I hope they keep it up.
