My guess is the benches will come close to the 2900XT when it was released. Not much of a difference, if any.
Reading his comments, he just doesn't "get it." A controlled test is the only way to truly highlight the issue. His tests simply are not valid to me. And he's doing the same crap he pulls at R3D, where if you don't share his opinions, he gets all testy and defensive.
