You may remember that NVIDIA did not comment on its cheats in drivers that allowed graphics cards based on certain GPUs from NVIDIA to score more in Futuremark’s 3DMark03, but accused the Finnish company in developing unfair benchmarks. The company also said that Futuremark asks for hundreds of thousands US Dollars to participate in its Beta Program. Well, Futuremark denied both allegations on Monday.

First of all, a Futuremark representative said that the company utilises the most-efficient shaders and rendering-patterns. Secondly, Aki Jarvilehto, Vice President Benchmark Products of Futuremark Corporation said over here that the minimum payment to join the Beta Program as a Beta Member is $5000 a year, not hundreds of thousands as NVIDIA Corporation claimed last week.

To tell you the truth, this is a very strange scandal fully shrouded in secrecy. Does someone have a background of this scandal between NVIDIA and Futuremark? You are welcome to e-mail me or leave a comment.
