Yeah, now all they gotta do is convince the community that nVidia doesn't have them in their backpocket.
Futuremark has many partners, each of them with their own objectives and goals that don't correlate with that of nVidia's. Why you believe they would somehow disregard other members to serve the needs of nVidia is beyond me. Just because they aren't jumping in nVidia's face calling them "cheater, cheater"?

Anyway, the fact is that we (Futuremark) made some last minute edits & changes and we wanted that all our Beta members would have enough time to read them through thoroughly.
Yes you did, but you didn't really answer the question there either just like here. (And no Worm, I haven't forgotten that B3D thread at all....it's nice & fresh in me mind written in 10 foot high flaming letters... )

Because they called nVidia "cheaters" before and then after a brief consultation with nVidia came out and called them "optimizations"...kind of why I'm doubting that they're sincerity about making their benchmark fair again.
