Cheats found in XGI his Reactor drivers?

Posted on Wednesday, December 17 2003 @ 20:33:04 CET by


NVIDIA and ATI were both caught a few months ago for benchmark optimizations, and especially NVIDIA his reputation went down a lot among tweakers. So it would be strange if the new firm XGI would dare to take this risk with their new Volari 3D cards, isn't it? However Martin Malik from HWInfo found some strange stuff in XGI his Reactor drivers.

The purpose of the file xrvkp.sys is not clear, but it contains references to the following programs:
3DMARK03.EXE; 3DMARK2001SE.EXE; 3DMARK2001.EXE; AQUAMARK.EXE; C4DEMO.EXE; GMMARK2.EXE; MAXPAYNE.EXE; BENCHMARK.EXE; UT2003.EXE; BEND3DIM.EXE; MADDEN04.EXE; HALO.EXE; 3DNASYS.EXE; CODECREATURES BENCHMARK PRO.EXE; CODECREATURES; SERIOUSSAM.EXE; SPLINTERCELL.EXE; C4.EXE; TRAOD.EXE; TRAOD_P3.EXE; TRAOD_P4.EXE; GIANTS.EXE; SEP.EXE; CLIENT.EXE; DFBHD.EXE; TOEE.EXE; MAJESTICCHESS.EXE; AOWSM.EXE; MGS2; SR2.EXE; F1_2001.exe; SPEEDDEMO.EXE; BF1942.EXE; X2-DEMO.EXE; XIII.EXE; FFXIWINBENCH.EXE; SIMCITY4.exe; GAME.DAT; WAR3.EXE; SM.EXE; FREELANCER.EXE; NR2003DEMO.EXE; FS9.EXE; DCT2.EXE; HCT.EXE.
Coincidentally these are all names of games and benchmark programs that are used a lot by the press to test graphics cards.
