Doesn't bother me because it's not visible during actual gameplay and I'll gladly take the addional performance over it. Plus it can very well be a driver (beta) bug and you can still increase the "water reflection update" setting in the cfg files.

These FUD sites are known to scream "it's a cheat, it's a cheat" very fast when it comes to Nvidia products. Remember the 8600 and it's advanced Purevideo functions? They blamed Nvidia for cheating in the HD HQV test but in reality Nvidia just allowed the end-user control over post-processing instead of fixed settings of the compeditor product.
