    Yeah I was a member over there a year ago and I left when I questioned one of his review methods and he basically told me I was an idiot and to go somewhere else if I didn't like his site. Which I did. I prefer the reviews over here, they use real world testing and are willing to talk to us guys if we have questions. Just because Kyle owns a huge ass site doesnt mean he should feel he is in a position to talk down to the people who make him the money, us. It irks me his site is so popular tbh, there are much better places on the net. Even better sites using this "real world" benching he claims to have invented. If you check the dates DH was using similar methods before he even thought of them (like dropping 3dmark for one - which is useless and always has been). Wouldn't be surprised if he "borrowed" these ideas. When Hardocp dropped 3dmark and claimed on the front page that it was useless and that no one needed it, and how awesome he was for thinking of this strategy, I linked to a post zardon made on the front page of Driverheaven 2 weeks beforehand. he never replied.

    He is an egotistical self centered manical dude with a god complex.

    Out of all reviews I've read, I've seen pretty much the same results with the HD3870X2 and it seems like it performs better than the 8800 Ultra in games that support CrossFire, but in games that doesn't then it won't scale equally well.

    Driver support from ATI's side will be crucial to the games performance of the HD3870X2 but it's a sweet card overall :D

    Welcome to DH!

    It would be best to start a separate thread within the ATI Cards forum.

    DH needs more credit for their testing guys. Today we have hardocp slagging off Anandtech regarding their testing and Hardocp are doing nothing that DH haven't been doing for years (DH do it better and more professional too).

    I don't mind sites doing good testing but to start dragging in other sites with quotes etc, just looks like a bunch of schoolboys.
