This is a balant misrepresentation from a site that's desperate for traffic. As such, I have left the charts but removed the link.

Is the web site harmful at all (e.g. virus, offensive pop-ups)? Otherwise I don't think there's any reason to remove parts of posts...

Actually there are times espically when NDA's are involved and other circumstances (not all of which the general population is aware) that requires the removal of links.

In this case it was for the propagation of misleading and knowingly incorrect information in order to increase revenu to a site.

Take this as you will but HWC cannot and will not be part of this scheme by some websites. It may start a great conversation but we'd be doing everyone a disservice by knowingly driving traffic to these types of sites.

Let me state it bluntly. It's a faked chart, in order to increase traffic to the originating site. That's why SKY removed the link, to keep from rewarding fraudulent site operators.

And honestly these charts\stats did looked suspicious to me as well, wanted to see the responses here :)

Meh I'm not excited about these cards. I got rid of my Radeon 7000 series card years ago when I dumped my AGP board...
