If anything it highlights just how bad Nvidia is cheating.

They mention that the 1.9% score difference is almost entirely on a 8.2% score difference in game test 4. An 8.2% difference is nothing to sneeze at, but now I think about the 24% difference in Nvidia scores

Of course it remains to be seen if Ati is cheating or not. But it is pretty clear Ati is doing SOMETHING to detect 3DMark and make it faster..At least for the one test.

IMO this should come as a surprise to nobody. This is the first REAL scrutiny I have seen from 3DMark, so it makes me wonder how bad the cheating is on previous versions (from both companies). After all, if they can get away with it, they will do it.
