NVIDIA Responds To GPU PhysX Cheating Allegations

Heated phone conversation sheds light

| Posted: Jun 26, 2008 1:59 am

Since NVIDIA brought the power of PhysX into play on the new GT200 Series cards with its most recent driver set, allegations have been running rampent across the web that NVIDIA are leveraging optimization cheats in these drivers to severely influence 3DMark Vantage scores.

 

 

The folks at Hot Hardware decided to dig deep and went straight to the heart to find out whether or not there is any truth in these accusations being made.

 

As such we jumped on the phone with not only Roy Taylor, Director of Developer Relations and Brian Burke, Senior PR Manager of NVIDIA but also spent some time talking to and trading emails with Oliver Baltuch, President of Futuremark, as well as Mark Rein, Vice President of Epic Games. The following is a quick-take transcript of our discussions with the various parties involved, as well as relevant commentary from a third party (Rein of Epic) that speaks to the core of the allegations and exactly what NVIDIA is or is not doing with their latest driver release.
