Applause for what ? A self-claimed increase in performance against dated hardware ? Or maybe it's outstanding value compared to a niche product aimed for a very limited section of the market ? You should know better than to believe companies self-made benchmarks. Just wait for a unbiased source to do a review on them. If these numbers turn out to be accurate (against rivalling products from the same class/price range) then I'll clap my hands till they bleed. ^ Really, is it possible to do that ?
