Futuremark came with a response to the accusations that Nvidia PhysX overwrites Vantage files. They decided that all the results using PhysX on a GPU should be removed from their Hall of Fame. The explanation is that they didn't mean the 3DMark Vantage to
work with GPUs supporting PhysX. So, they proceeded to updating the list without the named results. Also, they changed the way the results were organized in order to facilitate comparison, they say.
GPU PhysX Removed from Futuremark's Hall of Fame - The 3DMark Vantage was meant to work with PPU PhysX, not with GPU ones - Softpedia

I can explain what the story is, but let's jsut say using Phys-X does not give you accurate results. the lower scores you see without it are actually more accurate for your set-up, as your cpu score is falsely inflated. You cannot rely on the end score using Phys-X to judge system performance in Vantage.

Yes. It is suppose to be. Otherwise the results are inaccurate.
