Quote:Who would trust a film review written by someone who didn't watch the film? Or a car review by someone who didn't drive the car? Or a hardware review by someone who didn't use the hardware? As I said, he didn't even install the card, let alone make any judgements or comparisons. All that stuff you listed is purely superficial and can easily be done just by looking at pictures of the card (which is exactly what they did for the VRM analysis, where one guy used a picture of the PCB in GIMP without even physical access to the card: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UURdOEMrCA ). Not even Gamers Nexus are calling it a review, because they know better. They just want to get the preliminary stuff out of the way early so people who are looking forwards to the actual review have something to watch while they wait.
