Found Time machine of the page- look at "Avg. bench %":

Yeah and it was the right question to ask. I noted the obvious bias and then I started to ask myself how Userbenchmark raises revenue. It's from advertising. That obviously can't be good. You pay us and we'll make your product look good. Userbenchmark has every incentive to cheat. Passmark on the other hand raises revenue from selling their software to the consumer giving them no or at least less incentive to cheat. There is some advertising but they are selling their software to us. Big difference. I'll never visit Userbenchmark again it's clearly bogus.
