ExtremeTech has posted some information regarding NVIDIA's latest Detonator FX drivers that supposedly could be inflating 3D Mark 2003 scores a tad by cutting corners on the "game based" tests. NVIDIA has said they are looking into the problem and it may be just a 'driver bug'.

Seriously, cheating or not, I don't blame NVIDIA for trying to cut corners, if a lesson should be learned from this is not to rely on standard benchmark utilities completely but rather on real world applications/games... all other benchmarks we have seen and read based on games such as UT2003, Serious Sam 2 and even Doom 3 remain valid.
