that’s right they overclocked their radeon to get higher scores in 3dmarks then they should have got, they changed the pic some hours later to make it seem like a more reasonable score but its still way too high, they then deny they changed the pic and have been banning members left, right and centre and removing threads talking about it. What makes it worse is that there is an Intel banner at the top of the page. Judge for yourselves, if they are sellouts or not. :cool:

Until Kyle says why the the benchmark was changed, I won’t trust him.

:a :a :frowning: :frowning: :confused:

:cop:

If you are interested, I’m trying to find the FAQ where someone explaines why most benchmarks are completely meaningless :stuck_out_tongue: I haven’t read it so far, I only know that it exists (i don’t even know if it’s english or german), so I can’t judge it in advance :wink:

Wasn’t that because many benchmarks are based on theoretical situations?

That’s only one part of it as far as i know, since e.g. 3DMark is not based upon theoretical situations only.
