Exclamation ExtremeTech: "Nvidia Won't Reenter FutureMark Program, For Now"

It seems that ExtremeTech talked to someone from nVidia today and wrote a bit of a ditty on it, some of the skinny:

Even though the discussion apparently mended the fence between the two companies, Nvidia has not plans to join the FutureMark beta graphics benchmark program, the Nvidia spokesman said. "No, not right now," the spokesman said. "We still believe that games are 100 percent the way to go."

The Nvidia spokesman said that Nvidia had not placed any legal pressure on FutureMark to remove the word "cheat" from its analysis. An ATI spokesman on Monday maintained that Nvidia's actions represented cheating.
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
