Or maybe AMD stopped paying.



Two sides to everything.

Most who have looked at this in depth (it is old news, after all), now mostly, grudgingly, agree that although the testing in sysmark may favor Intel, it is also now more realistic of real world usage by the average user and not skewed to a less useful set of marks (that may coincidently favor AMD)
