Another thing we learn from this is that FutureMark now has also officially stated that their shader routines are inefficient! They say that nvidia managed to implement nvidia hw optimized shaders which are sometimes more than twice as fast as the shaders used by FutureMark. What does this say about FutureMark's credibility having released a benchmark optimized for future hardware! Well, nothing positive in any case...

That statement holds no merit. Futuremark is using DirectX9 standard shader code. This is a standardized benchmark afterall. The whole point is not to optimize for one particular card.
