Yes, ATI and nVidia both have methods of hidden surface removal which are an order of magnitude less effective than PowerVR's. Not sure if older cards/other manufacturer are using these methods or not. But, PVR proved that deferred rendering can work, it's a shame they don't release some high-end cards.

As a side note to the whole 3dmark thing - It is a common practice for developers to put in their own clip planes to reduce workload. Obviously, nvidia doing it for them (and only for nvidia cards) is not quite the same
ah, yeah sorry for that hehe
