Default AGP and 9 FPS are you serious?

I looked at the review that Rodney of 3DGAMERMAN put out for the HIS iSilence and the HD6470 IceQ video card line. I have to ask this why do they still make AGP cards, the market must not be that large at this point for such technology? Also the cards only averaged 9 FPS on Crysis, which is pretty easy to get. Any other thoughts?

YouTube - #1089 - HIS HD 4670 IceQ & iSilence4 HDMI Video Cards

You actually watch these dumb-as-nails reviews? Wow.

"And on this video card, you can see it has one DVI, Dual-link, port... And a Second DVI, Dual-Link, port. This provides you with TWO DVI ports so you can use two monitors!"

... Thats what I remember from those awful reviews. Oh yeah, and he rips off screenshots from our HwC reviews. Boycotted ever since.

There are tons of gamers who still play on single core AGP based PCs, this will sell like hot cakes. I have a friend who has built top of the line P4 3.2 PC in early 2005, right before PCI-E came out, I remember he paid something like $1000 for 2 sticks of RAM.

I find 3DGAMERMAN amusing and somewhat informative, his stuff comes up first in Google and youtube, so you can't not watch him.

3DGAMERMAN doesn't know how to review things. Also video reviews are pretty much pointless for video cards. They are good for cases but why show a video review when you need to look at numbers and that all that matters are the benchmark scores.

Haha yeah, all he does is read the spec and don't get me started on his removable motherboard tray.
