Default Re: How did NVIDIA cheat...exactly?

If you can't understand from the audit report generated by FutureMark that Nvidia was taking shortcuts in their drivers for the benchmark, and that is cheating, well then I doubt anything can change your opinion.

Of course FutureMark wouldn't, and as far as I know, never did explicitly state that Nvidia was cheating since I suspect that would have gotten them into legal troubles.

Well, just where is Nvidia's press release I don't see anything in the Nvidia Press Room about this. Rather strange, considering that they have something dated June 3rd, 2003 up there. Maybe it'll be up tomorrow.

Again, if someone did provide "proof" I suspect that they would be violating the settlement agreement and that would be a "bad thing". Usually you have to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) as part of the settlement. So FutureMark can't really say a whole lot about the incident so you will never get your "proof".
