    We reported just a few days ago that Level505.com had posted benchmarks of test samples of the R600. However, there is a good chance that those benchmarks were doctored. For one thing, if AMD had released test samples of it's next graphics card, the R600 series, there would have been a press release. The website had went online just before releasing those benchmarks, there were no pictures of the R600, and there was some odd benchmark data (like a strangely slow G80 in Oblivion). Basically, The entire thing just doesn't look official, and looks more like a marketing gimmick in favor of AMD's R600.

    pfft... as I said, doctored results... No way R600 is that weak.
