Sorry, but I've got to disagree there th4t1guy.
Dr Tom definately knows his hardware. I've been using THG as a professional reference point for the last 7 or 8 years, and found that until about 2.5 years ago it was as unbiased as it could reasonably be. Indeed Intel said they were biased in favour of AMD about 3 years ago. It is only in the last two years that he's revealed his true colours, and then only in the choice of s/w to use for testing, and additional information about how they do this.
As a guide to using and setting up h/w, THG is an excelent and very useful resource. As an unbiased tester of that h/w, the same cannot be said.
Unfortunatly his treatment of Van Smith is so far beyond reasonable that you do begin to wonder if he hasn't taken the last step into self-seeking, publicity fueled idiocy.
