FutureMark driver certification policies examined


Adrian's Rojak Pot has a tasty look at the current state of FutureMark's driver certification enforcement for 3DMark03. Adrian reprints a letter he received from FutureMark in response to a review he published recently using results from an "unapproved" NVIDIA video driver. He then steps through FutureMark's logic and learns a few things about how these guys are trying to squelch driver cheats. Among the revelations: no current NVIDIA driver is fully approved for use in comparisons.

Adrian presents the facts without much irony or blame. His benchmarks demonstrate that FutureMark does seem to have a point, though.
