It's a "kick-ass" sham... i hadn't watched any of his reviews for probably 4 years now... til yesterday.

"Used car salesman" is right. Not to bash or anything like that... but c'mon. The internet isn't this "new and wonderous" thing anymore. A video podcaster just starting out today makes better quality, more professional videos than he does. His look like a late-night infomercial. 100% lame

Just to keep you guys in the loop, Techpowerup is now looking into the possibility that he used some of their images too in a past review.

Oppps sorry I put a period where a comma belonged. I just meant it was stated on the websites as that reason. Sorry for my grade 2 grammar.

And to sky's new post wow this is opening a whole new can of worms

Good eye Cptn Vortex.

After reviewing the video at time stamp 2:47 and comparing it to the pic in SKMTL's review, I would have to say its a forgery. Just take a careful look at the thermal pads but more so the top right area of the mosfet thermal pad area and you'll notice both that both shots are one to each other. The odds that the thermal pads would be in the same position on two separate video cards would be quite low so I would say he got caught with his pants down.

Yes and no. This has not made it to the major Tech News outlets but it is currently posted on XS, here, JonnyGuru and OCForums. I don't know of any other places it is showing up right now.

As stated before, he was reviewing a HIS; Sky reviewed a Palit. The HIS does not have any "Radeon" sticker on the side; the Palit (as well as the Sapphire) does.

Case closed.
