"First of all, we should congratulate NVIDIA and the company’s software developers. Their 42.68 drivers helped GeForceFX 5800 Ultra based card to outrun its main rival, RADEON 9700 PRO nearly in all the tests and resolutions."

Thats all I needed to read....

BAH MORE BS

Well the Det. 42.68 did gave them a hugh boost on 3dmark03. I wished they would of tests them with the WHQL drivers from their site.

Yes they DID..... wonder how that happened is my point.......as if everyone didn't already have alot of clues... AFAIK they (42.68-"Magic" drivers.. ) will NEVER be WHQL certified... part of the deal when you don't follow the DX9 spec.
They test with any other driver, and you can knock 1500-2000 points off that score........ as has been proven.
Supposedly there is talk about a certified driver coming out within a week or so........ wonder what they will do this time to skirt the DX9 spec, while still getting away with it...... or will they be satisfied taking a beating( forget about AA/AF, not even worth mentioning but in passing).
They have 1 thing going for them, thats the NV35.... and IMO they better get it out reasonably soon.

I personally hope they get it out and it is a great card... I don't think they've helped progress with their latest effort.

The NV35 will be the same thing as the NV30 except it will have 256 bit Memory.
