The reason for this is that the drivers have been officially stated as optimized for 3DMark03, & we can not verify the purity & integrity of the drivers. We are investigating the drivers & their effect on 3DMark03 - both performance & the rendering quality (ie. image quality)."[/COLOR]
Would you like to know more? I do recall reading that these "press drivers" NVIDIA released did improve 3D Mark 2003 performance, albeit by not rendering certain effects. Hmmmm.
