What benchmarking services do you guys 'approve' of? I think WEI isn't very trusted here, is it? Or at least, it's not taken too seriously. Is that correct? What do you guys prefer? I generally just use like http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/ and whatnot, which is PassMark...

Only benchmarks I follow are how things actually run in the real world. What framerates I get in games, how quick programs operate, ect..

Synthetic benchmarks are a joke, and IMHO, not worth much more than online e-peen/bragging rights. Final scores often seem very arbitrary compared to how conventional software performs in practice.

Synthetic? Well don't some (tomshardware, off the top of my head) actually test the hardware and games and show FPS comparisons? Is this acceptable?

Er, maybe synthetic wasn't the right term. Basically just meant the difference between programs designed to run some tests and spit out a score, versus the programs and games you're likely to be running in day-to-day life.

Yeah, alright. That makes sense. So, what sites do you guys prefer that uses actual games for their benchmarks? Or do you just google and find stuff?

Google around and get a wide variety. There's no telling when the selection of games one site uses will favor one product over another.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

tomshardware and anandtech are the two best sites for real-world benchmarking in my opinion
