Hi just thought i would post this for the gang that use the 3d mark. <br>i got it sent email update. <br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.futuremark.com/download/?3dmark03patch330.shtml">www.futuremark.com/downlo...h330.shtml</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--> <br><br>Q: What does patch 330 do? <br>A: This patch produces correct and comparable 3DMark03 scores for all hardware. <br><br>Q: Was there something wrong with earlier builds? <br>A: No. However, we verified that recent NVIDIA drivers detected when 3DMark03 <br>was running and then switched into a special mode, taking control from <br>3DMark03. This ultimately resulted in incorrect 3DMark03 results and made <br>performance comparisons between NVIDIA's and other manufacturers' <br>hardware impossible. Patch 330 changes 3DMark03 code in <br>trivial way so that these drivers are not able to detect when it is running. <br>For independent media analysis of the situation, <p></p><i></i>
