    It's just because Mendel's photo shopping skills suck more than that of ATI/nV's PR departments

    And here are your irrelevant results so far:
    Code:
    Graph style a).........4  	10.26%
    Graph style b).........	29 	74.36%
    Neither................5 	12.82%
    Both...................1 	2.56%
    
    Graph style a) here refers to the style of the original graph, b) would refer to full scale graph. (as edited by me, but ignoring it being crappy)

    The first thing I think of when I see that graph is 1/5th of 1% difference.

    What's funny is that below the graph they say:

    Zeroing the graph definitely would have shown this more clearly.

    Indeed. Now if only I'd continued studying Turkish so the rest made sense :(

    P.S. Just pointing out that these marketing graphs are not exlusive to anyone one side.

    ZOMG. The red line is 7x as long as the green line! Where do I send my money? Do they take tips too?! If I send them a signed blank check and tell them to fill in what they feel is fair, will that work?

    Bye bye 8800GTX. I bought a new mainboard, memory, psu and a 4800X2. That graph convinced me!

    Why not start at 1.2 so that the competitors appear to score negative?
