This build was said to prevent cheats, so you can compare cards on an equal stance...

Are the results for real? nVidia new FX 5950's taking a big hit, But Ati's 9800 Pro's hit is only minor...I guess nVidias card cant realy run well without using nVidia codes...

lol, so they're at it again...I guess NVidia didn't bribe them enough

It's not that I hate NVidia (hell, I'm running a GfFX 5600, and I like it alot), it's just the things they do to make thier cards look better...I don't care what any of my video cards get in becnhmarking programs, all I care about is if they play the games I play smoothly.

As of right now, I would trust 3DMARK 2003 results again...untill NVidia releases a new set of ForceWare drivers to give another boost to the FX line...

Can we just forget the cheating thing? Sure nVidia is trying to do it through code in drivers, but that's only because ATi was able to develop their cards around it :rolleyes:

What do you mean by that?
