OK I was just going through TheInquirer and came across an article that made my blood boil! Basically its a Microsoft review for gamers which practically promotes the Pentium and gives no consideration to the A64!!
The initial link is here.

and article here

I have already done as requested in the article and posted back to Microsoft (using the third l'inq in the original article) about my dissatisfaction with such obvious favouritsm and nonsense about Hyperthreading!
Hope you will do the same!!! Stand up and be counted!

Sir!!! Yes Sir!!!
Already posted back my comments to them, although I don't expect anything out of it, I just thought that I should pitch in my own voice. I expected to get ****ed when I clicked the link to that supposed gaming pc roundup, but after reading it I was just laughing my b*** off. Maybe they got a grade schooler to prepare that page.

I'm an AMD fan, but I didn't find anything that got me angry. Yeah, they didn't mention an AMD processor, and the description of HT was rediculous, and I do think that the author should've mentioned AMD, but if you look at the table where they list how good a PC is they don't state AMD or Intel, so it can't be that bad... Although letting them know is a good idea

What a load of trash.

Too bad authors don't need to do much real research before they write things like that...
