Default Awful cheat Tom... you disappointed me

Did you check last Tom's P4 3.6GHz test??
Look at the closeup photo in the first page. See that 3.3 on the lower right?

Well, that's edited. Look at the zoomed pic I just made.
Both '3' look identical, and are identical to the 3 on the left too!!
Zoom the original photo and compare any other pair of letters or numbers... they are different! The pixels around the letters are quite random!! Except for these tree 3's.

Too bad, Tom.....

Other then color, you are absolutely right. Every pixel is identical from one to the next. I'd be interested though to see a blown up shot that would allow me to see the zero's together too, just because I don't think he would fake those considering their placement, and if they are random, thats the nail in the coffin...

Not another scam. The Inquirer has scammed enough but yet we see Tom's hardware doing it?
Before making that decision I would prefer to hear what the reviewer has to say about that.

As much as I don't like Tomshardware.com, I can't really see the difference

Well, as nazistguy points out, if you looke at the blown-up picture as one of those 3D picture that you have to cross your eyes to see, you can see the block on the 3's. Just get your eyes to affix one 3 on top of the other, and there is clearly a box there. I'm not sure if this truly evidence of a copy and paste, but it sure is interesting nonetheless.

Here are some of the main similarities:



Consider the jpg compression changes the image... better zoom the original, from Tom's site.

My ellipses and arrows are nicer!

Is this worth mentioning in the main news?? Such a bad move by such an important site....
