I actually imagine future reviews just wont use 3dmark03. It's pointless to force reviewers to use licensed drivers, Since most reviewers are going to try and use the latest certified drivers from the site.
Ok, I just saw that in their fine print. Tom's Hardware will probably still use it and burry the details on another page in small print. Otherwise, they will not use it at all as long as nVidia does not win the benchmark.
