Do you even know which user I'm talking about? About the IPC chart threads he created in which he claimed Apple is "destroying the competition" etc.? Don't comment unless you understand what I'm talking about here. The guy has been banned more than once.Resorting to personal attacks on posters who disagree with you?
Keep that ego in check. I wasn't talking about you.
Esoteric for whom? There are users on this forum that frequently make use of 3D rendering and encode software, which is why those two benchmark types happen to be very popular on these forums. That and gaming.Just because I am saying it's the best overall mobile SoC/APU on the market doesn't mean it has to win every single esoteric benchmark.
edit: for those wondering why GB5 is held to be an awful benchmark - I'll reiterate: in most cases, GB5 doesn't make my CPU actually do anything. At least Cinebench, y-cruncher, (in its day) w-prime, and Blender keep the execution units of my CPU working. I've watched the temps and the core activity levels while running GB5 MT and I can tell you that it doesn't put much load on the CPU. So from a purely technical point-of-view, benchmarks like GB5 don't really tell me anything about how well I can expect my CPU to work when I ask the most of it. Why am I supposed to care about GB5?
At least AnTuTu is up-front about having a "user experience" benchmark component.
edit: nice how we have an army of downvoters trying to crush dissent in this thread.
