That's correct, ATI has been quite frank and open. They certainly never admitted to cheating, did they?

Is it cheating? Largely, that depends on the definition of cheating....My point is exactly that- print the news. Some will see it as "cheating" and some will see it as "optimizing." Leaving that distinction up to the reader is the responsible thing to do.
As I pointed out...the x-bit article says that "ATI admitted they cheated" or something like that. Volt was posting about the x-bit article, and he used the same words as they did.

Is that wrong? No. Is it irresponsible? Yes. Certainly I think x-bit is misrepresenting the news. But I think Volt is accurately representing x-bit's news.

The question is, "was this the right thing to do in this situation?" That is what the debate is about.
