3DMark03 Patch 330 Released - nVidia cheating?

| Posted: May 23, 2003 11:39 pm

FutureMark has released a new patch for 3DMark03 today which apparently stops nVidia Detonator FX drivers from detecting some mechanisms which cause an artificially high score.

 

3DMark®03 incorporates many ground breaking new features and technologies and sets the standard for easily and objectively measuring and comparing modern PCs' 3D graphics performance. Recently, there have been questions and some confusion regarding 3DMark®03 results obtained with certain Nvidia drivers.

 

We have now established that NVIDIA's Detonator FX drivers contain certain detection mechanisms that cause an artificially high score when using 3DMark®03. We have just published a patch 330 for 3DMark03 that defeats the detection mechanisms in the drivers and provides correct results.
