Please if you are going to link to benchmarks about video cards, use some with some relevant information to video cards.
i'm not sure why you're getting your panties all in a bunch... there are many cases where the fx series equals or betters the radeons; just not in DX9 shaders where ati excels.

those benchmarks really show nothing we haven't seen before, they just don't include any apps which use DX9 shaders extensively, where ati's strength lies. besides, you can't rely on a single benchmark/review anyways... regardless of whose review it is, it only paints a partial picture. at any rate, gripe about the poor selection of apps in this comparison, but neither the results nor the methodology is necessarily faulty.
