Futuremark, creators of the 3DMark03 benchmark, has accused 3D graphics vendor nVidia of cheating on its 3DMark2003 benchmark. According to Futuremark, when it implemented a trivial change to the benchmark, nVidia's performance dropped by almost 25%, while other vendors' performance stayed within the margin of error. The company identified eight areas where nVidia's driver seems to detect benchmark behavior, and then falsely optimize performance.
