And that's exactly how it should be. 3DMark03 is meant to test new tech (PS1.4 and 2.0 among others). GF4 does not support them, they have to use (slower) PS1.1 instead. And that REALLY hurts! But it's not problem with 3DMark, it's NV's problem for not supporting better tech.
Again: 3DMark is supposed to test new tech. GF4 doesn't support that new tech, so they don't do so well. It's NV's problem, not 3DMarks. Maybe NV should have decided to support new tech, instead of holding the industry back?
