Stating experiences is one thing. Going around and repeatedly claiming and arguing with people about 285 SLI being comparable in performance to 5970 is doing a little more than that. You're laying a claim to fact which you must then prove if you expect others to take you seriously.

And that's where there's a problem, because the only proof you have of this "fact" that you keep claiming is a single benchmark review that is quite questionable since it clashes with results found on several other reputable sites.

I don't care if Hilbert is a CEO of a graphics division, if he were, there is still the margin of error that you get when you decide to take a single set of benchmarks and ignore everything else out there. You keep going that route if you like; I'm not going to. I would rather see something validated and confirmed by a few different sources before I believe something, but hey, you do what you like.

Do you really think I care if they meet with your approval? (That's a resounding "I don't" in case you were in any doubt).
You keep turning this into some sort of personal issue. It is not. It's not about meeting "[my] approval"; it's about you proving your claims to fact.

PPS : 10-15% is not significant in my opinion but that's subjective. Obviously you think it is and you are entitled to that opinion.
Yes, because 3x performance of a 285 in Stalker equates to "10-15%" difference between 5970 and 285 SLI. I guess you plan to show us the first confirmed case of SLI scaling about 180% on a game.
