They're not. Running many tests doesn't help when your testing methodology is crap.

Testing methodology is perfectly fine, it is the most used source on this forum. Please stop with this belligerent nonsense.

They frequently update the testing suite with new popular games, Battlefield 4 and 3 are still popular, the reasoning behind keeping them. Almost every single review site still uses Battlefield 4. If you think TechPowerUp is unreliable then, what do you think of Guru3D?

I'm not the one vouching for them. Maybe, you should explain.

No you are the one who needs to explain, as you are the one who is denying their results when every other person on this website has absolutely zero problems with them.

I always take a review like this with a shovel of salt,like every review that shows min fps very close to avg fps. in TW3 they probably just load a scene then turn the mouse around and voila!

Hardly my issue that you can't spot glaring flaws in a testing methodology, but mixing results of games running at anything between 30 and 200FPS makes as much sense as mixing 800x600 results with 4k results.

Look, just because something is widely used does not mean it is any good. I still wonder why every single site except hardOCP is using max settings and bringing every single card to its knees at all resolutions. Sometimes a GTX 980 Ti doesn't even break 60FPS at 1080p and that's beyond retarded.

It is perfectly fine to have WoW on their test suite because it still have a 6 million user base but following that reasoning DOTA2, CS:GO and many others should be included too.

So out of curiosity, who does testing better and why is it better?

His game suite has a good mix of a lot of the latest titles with a couple older favorites thrown in.

He does not mix results. Each resolution has it's own average at the end of the test which makes some titles hitting 200 fps at lower resolutions a non issue.

And testing 1600x900 might seem silly until you look at Steam's hardware survey and see that 1600x900 still has more users than 4K and 1440p.

He's the only one that retests every card in that lineup in every test with newest drivers. Majority of others recycle results.

So don't tell us it's flawed, tell us why it's flawed.
