Without an unbiased review, there is no way to know if these are true. Chances are they aren't.

And there's no need for AMD scores. These scores are likely exaggerated and that's a fact whether or not they've tested AMD cards.

No, one cannot predict how AMD cards perform because an engine can easily be biased (COH and FC2 anyone?) and again, this review might be biased towards NVIDIA.


TL;DR:
This review is not a good source in and of itself. If other reviews confirm these scores then it's all good and one can then use this to compare NVIDIA cards (this is probably the only review that'll ever test the 8800 GT in this game), but for now, I'd not conclude anything based on this.
Yup, these scores are so exaggerated that they're actually lower/slower than the ones produced by the guys @ Techspot.

I'm not trying to start something here but, It just doesn't make any sense.

I would understand if they were comparing them to AMD cards, but that's clearly not the case.
You seem to be under the impression that a company would only present information that makes themselves look more appealing in a competitive setting, which is not the case.

Better perceived results = more customer faith in products lasting longer than their lifespan
Better perceived results = more customer satisfaction in product performance

Better perceived results = more sales
Better perceived results = more investors

Like I said before, they wouldn't set up their tests to show an extreme discrepancy in what you should expect, but it is likely that there will be some discrepancy because their goal is to market and sell with these benchmarks. You should always wait for independent reviews instead of relying solely upon an entity whose goal is to increase market appeal, market share, investors, and sales for a product they produce.

This game runs better (a lot)

But its looks worse (a bit)

Fair trade off, still a shame

Maybe there's something wrong with my system or the ATi drivers aren't optimized at all for Crysis 2 (can't really expect them to be considering the game hasn't been released yet).

Anyway, I ran a FRAPS benchmark with Hardcore settings @ 1920x1080 and averaged 53 fps. This is comparable to a single GTX 570 so needless to say, I'm disappointed.

I don't think crossfire is working on the demo atm.

I'm getting 99% usage on both GPUs.

Since SLI isn't working with the demo... I'd be surprised if CF was.

What did you expect for a console port?

Oh, 'cause they're like totally doing the testing in the same way and everything!
/sarcasm

They're using different SP levels that likely give different levels of stress. Oh, you didn't notice that they were doing the tests in different levels? They're probably also using a more recent build which would give different performance numbers. They also didn't mention what version of DX they're using. It might be DX10 which would also affect performance.

Regardless of what you said about not wanting to start the fight, I think you should drop the attitude. One thing is asking questions politely because you don't know how it works, another is asking questions in a provoking way because you think you know everything there is to know about benching.

I'm assuming crossfirex is working because both GPUs are enabled and running at 800/1250 (stock clocks) with 100% GPU usage while playing. Maybe something to do with the non-existent Crysis 2 crossfirex profile, I have no idea.
