Hey everyone, there's a 1 point difference between a comparision of 3DMark2001... Let's make a graph showing a gap like the grand canyon!

He didn't even line the bars up correctly to the right number.


Moreover-exaggerated graphs in store...

P.S. Something about graphs like that just enrage me.

Yeah, totally stupid. They'd rather have used fake results in my opinion.

LOL looks like they hired an accountant instead of an engineer to whip up that graph.:D

I remember some graph like that a while back, I think it was some OEM comparing different processors, there was a 100 point difference and a 2 foot gap in the graph:rolleyes:

I decided to not buy OCZ long ago, but this settles it even if it isnt their fault..

ROFL, man thanks for a good laugh, kind of weird really, wouldnt think that OZC or any other comp. would pay much for a positive review on site like that... so this guys is either desperate or really really dumb.

Sad part these things are common these days :(
