I have to agree. His reviews always favor Nividia heavy. Its obvious he likes Nvidia better(or dislikes ATI) if you read his forum post on here and on other forums.

GPU reviews always bring the best out of people doesn't it ?

P.s. If you think this or that reviewer favors green or red, take it into account and leave it at that, no ?

Or better yet, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti SOC (GV-N560SO-1GI).

Core Clock: 1000 MHz
Shader Clock: 2000 MHz
Memory Clock: 4580 MHz

STOCK!

Overclocked mine to:

Core Clock: 1044 MHz
Shader Clock: 2088 MHz
Memory Clock: 4950 MHz

Marketing blurb.
