It has to do with the GF-8 and possibly the -9 and GT200 series. There is much rage about it on the tech forums, as Nvidia's drivers only seem to "magically" improve whenever ATI's performance starts to encroach on their dominance. Since the introduction of the truly competitive 48xx series by ATI, we probably won't hear too much more about it, as it probably kicked Nvidia's driver team into high gear.
