AMD is giving sites a chance to get some added hits by allowing them to post some basic details and results a month before the full NDA is lifted - you'd honestly think all tech sites would appreciate that...
If I was AMD's PR manager, I just wouldn't provide them any further early access to products for reviews. If they are whinging about this, then they honestly do not deserve to have early access to products.

You guys just like to cry about AMD.

Seems like this Tech Report editor/reviewer is just trying to stir up trouble.

I think AMD needs to deal with the likes of techreport, especially when AMD have done no wrong. personally, i believe techreport is biased towards intel as they have done previews for intel before in much restricted circumstances, or just from reading most of the "previews" and reviews on their site. clearly this is an attempt by techreport to give AMD a bad name for fixing benches when it wasn't the case... Good job intel and techreport
FFS - Grow some n*ts AMD or bring some people in who do....now make it happen
