"AMD fanboy" Owned 3 Nvidia GPUs, 2 ATI, 2 3dfx, 1 PowerVR, 1 Matrox in the last 20 years. Yeah super "fanboy" xD.
Verno, if for you implacable logic in the face of obvious evidence = excuses, well, I feel sorry for you... You have all my compassion, and then some!
I'd like to see your faces in 2 years when they release Volta and "suddenly" Futuremark releases a true async test using all 3 methods instead of only one that caters to the lowest common denominator. "Fairness" and everything.
RedEye, read the whole thing and for once educate yourself from independent third parties, if you can't read between the lines instead of swallowing the PR whole like a fish, its pretty useless to quote them and only make you sound like some kind of conformist acting out of ignorance and repeating like a Brave New Worlds parrot repeats hypnopedic quotes.
You know, I've been around this site for more than a decade, as well as Ve3D back in the days, back then we used to have real tech journalism and the comments section was always shockfull to the brim of intelligent comments that left me simply no place to interject, so I never bothered to subscribe to comment, all had been said already.
No matter what was discussed, no matter which company was indirectly targeted when discussing their actions, people didn't have preferences nor defended one companies actions over the other or accused one another of "fanboyism" and other petty insignificant labels to defend ignorance ( at worst it was pretty uncommon ), they talked about issues and debated them and it was beautiful to watch. I used to have a blast reading the comments section even without commenting myself.
But the last few years... It all took a pretty hard nosedive and it seems the comment section has followed the same trend, falling in line with the overall trend of rising anti-intellectualism in favor of idiocracy with not only a lack of critical thought, but also the petty mockeries of it which are now pretty much widespread wherever you go, albeit not everywhere, altho its pretty rampant.
These are dark ages for tech journalism ( not to mention journalism as a whole, where has investigative journalism gone? )... and tech news sites comments sections.
I truly wish you all good luck with your intellectual issues people. You deserve better.
