Im not sure if anyone knows this or not, but theres currently a fanboy war brooding over in the THG forums between (gee) amd and intel guys.
This has surfaced:
as has the link below if you feel like digging through the 'youre a troll' 'no they rigged the system' fanboy comments for something intellectually stimulating...
any thoughts etc. etc. as to if this is true or more mere fanboy bait? i mean ****, if intel skewed a benchmark thats just not right, however i give their P.R. department props for being the lowest of the low.
and... how did the fx-60 suddenly loose 14 fps in F.E.A.R. if the rig wasnt tampered with?
and... why is intel setting up an amd rig? (id usually say enough said right here but) why the **** are they using an r480 mobo with dual x1900xts and a 'built for conroe' video card driver on an amd system that benches lower than a 6800gt?
from the other side of the fence, intel really wouldnt have anything to gain from falsifying this stuff would they? unless of course they can actually make this kind of performance increase against an untweaked amd system by july.
if they cant... goodbye to EVERY bit of user trust they have ever built.
thoughts and opinions (kindly keep the fanboy stuff out of here, if i wanted to see unintelligent garbage id watch wwe wrestling)
