Obviously Nvidia (once again) chose to make their comments at a rather awkard time, but as a whole I agree with what they are saying. I use 3dmark to verifiy that nothing has changed with my computer from the last test, as a way to insure everything is ok. Beyond that, I have never seen a corralation between better scores from new drivers, and actual games that play faster. In every case that 3dmark goes up, the games I play remain the same.
exactly. nvidia's statement about benchmarking games is a cop out. however, it is the preferable reality. i'd rather have them optimize for more games
than spend time optimizing for useless benchmarks. at least then there's a chance that some games i actually play would run faster.
