Speed Cheat - Not just for Half-Life anymore.. (0 Comments) (link)
 Sunday, 11-February-2001  01:13:27 (GMT +10) - by Agg

I got some troubling info today, thought I would share it. Sorry if it's old news but I've not seen anything about it yet. It seems the "Speed Cheat" used in Half-Life and Counter-Strike lately can also be used to skew benchmark results. I have some info and screenshots up showing 60,000+ 3DMarks, WCPUID reporting a 17,000MHz FSB etc etc.. of course, it's not these massive scores that are the real worry, rather the possibility of just bumping your scores up a little while still seeming realistic.

Hmm, every high benchmark score will be under suspicion now..
