Kudos for a couple of very accurate and pointed observations.

Can anyone find out which driver that 5900U was using? I am not registered at FM.
The 44.67 WHQL Detonators (on EVGA's site) have in the readme.txt "Fixed 3dmark03 issues." These are the same drivers that no longer have the clipping issues, and actually gave me about 1-2% higher score on 3dmark 3.3.0 than the 44.03 drivers did on 3.2.0. So, however they achieved the score, the 44.67 drivers are obviously cool with Futuremark as they put all the Nvidia cards using them in the Hall of Fame. All drivers after 44.67 also have no problems with 3dmark. And, the top 3 cards in ORB are currently FX5900 Ultras using 44.67 or later and 3dmark 3.3.0.

Then again, does all this really matter when a P2-350mhz is the CPU of choice for 3dmark03?
We're all in it together.
