But my take on this situation is.

Futuremark has been getting alot of funds from Nvidia in the past. Now since 3dmark03 is anti nvidia cards (ala not showing them in the lead) nvidia cut them off.

While im sure Futuremark went stright to ATi looking for alot of free money. Maybe when it did not happen, they are getting strapped for cash and then saw nvidia parading outside their door burning money to light their cigars!

EDIT--------------

I really doubt that Nvidia is sueing futuremark, espcially since futuremark is in finland i think? But i do feel they need money despratly, i almost would bet over 50% of their money came from nvidia.

I personally find this paragraph both bogus and offensive.....

Read between the lines.....


"Both NVIDIA and Futuremark want to define clear rules with the industry about how benchmarks should be developed and how they should be used."

Talk about getting taken to the cleaners.

Edit: Changed line to paragraph.

No,no Mike...the song was "kumbaya".

I saw the mental picture of 'em all holding hands and singing kumbaya and it actually made me chuckle thru the rising bile.

This is just SO wrong on SO many levels! KYLE IS A FUDGICLING TOOL!!!! :MADASHELL!!!:

Lawyers win.

Shows that you can buy your way out of anything. That's OK though we still have the brains at ET and B3D to let us know what we are spending our hard earned cash on. The fools will believe PR while the smarter will make the better decision. It's a bad time to be a n00b.. sigh.. I hope Ati spanks the piss out of nvidia on the next 5 launches. This is childish.

I'm just speechless....

I feel like I have a brain aneurism.

I also think some bad **** is going to go down. Namely, Futuremark won't comment on ATI's actual optimization, and eveybody's going to say "Nvidia didn't cheat, but ATI did."

Oh, and should't this be in BENCHMARKS? Or because everyone thought this was a victory for Nvidia, it will remain?

It will get stuck in benchmarks when it dies down a bit, or hidden away as some refer to it
