If NVIDIA were doing this now, I would hold them accountable as well. This sort of thing needs to be exposed so people aren't mislead.
I played three games after installing my fine new XFX HD6870 last night:Just Cause2, UT3, and COD World at War.
In COD, didn't notice anything unusual.
In Just Cause 2, I saw shimmer in the road.
In UT3, I saw an actual line move with me on a fence, and huge amounts moire effect on areas where the floor was comprised of steel grates.
Definitely merits more investigation.
