Futuremark has released a statement to follow-up on the recent controversy over whether NVIDIA was cheating on their drivers to provide better 3DMark03 scores. The statement was sent along to a couple of sites (Bjorn3D was the first to send word), and while the conclusion states: "However, recent developments in the graphics industry and game development suggest that a different approach for game performance benchmarking might be needed, where manufacturer-specific code path optimization is directly in the code source," the main thrust of the release says: "Futuremark now has a deeper understanding of the situation and NVIDIA's optimization strategy. In the light of this, Futuremark now states that NVIDIA's driver design is an application specific optimization and not a cheat ."
