nVidia responds to cheating claims

| Posted: May 23, 2003 11:49 pm

As a follow up to our previous news post, nVidia has just recently responded to FutureMark and their claims that they tweaked their Detonator FX drives to performance artificially high under 3DMark03.

 

ATi has also been accused for cheating but not on the large scale nVidia is being accused.

 

Since NVIDIA is not part in the FutureMark beta program (a program which costs of hundreds of thousands of dollars to participate in) we do not get a chance to work with Futuremark on writing the shaders like we would with a real applications developer. We don't know what they did but it looks like they have intentionally tried to create a scenario that makes our products look bad. This is obvious since our relative performance on games like Unreal Tournament 2003 and Doom3 shows that The GeForce FX 5900 is by far the fastest graphics on the market today.
