Hehe are you an nVidia marketing bot? :)

Should read "ATi and nVidia BOTH caught cheating in industry benchmark"... ATi have just had the decency to come out with their hands up so far, and anyway from what I have read nV seems to be (a) changing what is rendered (b) replacing shaders/adding clipping planes to increase the score by ~20% overall... ATi's version doesn't change what is rendered and only increases the score by ~2%

For mucho indepth discussion by people who know (ish) what they are talking about please read www.beyond3d.com

I fail to see how this thread fits in "Matrox Hardware" forum... Genral H/S material...:)

Oh yeah - hadn't even noticed where it was put! :)

I wonder why ATi even did it at all, I mean either way the Radeons cream nV cards. ;)

Matrox doesn't make ATI cards.
This is the Matrox Hardware forum.
Moved to General Hardware/Software

Are you sure it's ATI?

ZDNET-Nvidia benchmark furor clouds results (http://zdnet.com.com/2100-1103_2-1011033.html?tag=fdfeed)

EDIT: I see both are up to it...
