What we expect will happen is that we'll be forced to expend more engineering effort to update our compiler's fingerprinter to be more intelligent, specifically to make it intelligent in its ability to optimize code even when application developers are trying to specifically defeat compilation and optimal code generation.
I don't know about you, but telling us they are going to make it harder for developers to detect when nVidia's drivers are cheating adds a bad taste to my mouth. I don't see how anyone can defend these tactics. And "fingerprinter"...if that is not designed to specifically detect things in the benchmark I don't know what it is. Basically, they are saying they should have made it harder for them to find. I wonder how much other stuff got through they could not find?
