Like I said..great points on both sides.
I now see your side clearly...thats why I had to go with undecided.
Because my business sense say a company in the business of selling opinion cant be tagged bias..or "opinions for sale."
Rookie mistake...maybe....rookie with a bias...in the case you pointed out...probably..
Ill bet though brother, that they will be watching this closer after your
poll....thanks...good looking out...c.
No need to appologize mate, i took no offence to it.

Tom's has a pretty good bias creeping in lately. Did you look at the comparison of 32 mid range cards they did recently? They compared factory OCed 560Ti cards against a stock 6950 and said that the 560Ti is the better card to buy, ignoring the fact that there are OCed 6950s as well, which soundly beat OCed 560 Tis..
With an Uproar from the community such as the one witnessed on their forum, it would've been detrimental "not" to run the bench again.
I do see your point with the 6950's, though, if the article you are refering to, is the one i read, it was the SOC version from gigabyte with the 1ghz core clock? They also said it was very close in comparison to the 570 as well (at stock clocks of course), but the point i think they were trying to make is that Nvidia's 3rd fastest (single GPU card) offering can compete with AMD's 2nd fastest offering, at the time, the 560Ti's were cheaper then the 6950's i believe.
Note: most of the SOC cards were unstable from factory so they had to reduce the core to 950.
Regardless of Tom's, i normally search for my reviews (and read) on google for the most part and average results over all the tests, much like TPU do.
