i posted this in another thread but i think it is just as relvent here:
as for "the gamer's benchmark" i agree that it can be missleading, but no more missleading than ati saying the "r300 core supports ssaa" or any vast number of examples i could think of. but in a situation like that no one is realy lieing by anymeans and the only way anyone gets mislead in situations like that is when they read too much into it, which is bound to happen. for instance, check out the_matrix's comments starting at near the botom of this is page for an example of a nvidia fan gone way too far:
case in point
i almost felt like signing up as someone brainwashed by ati and start an argument about how truefrom was going to rule the world.
