Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

@Apoptosis
I don't think there is any question that you don't know how to do a good review.
I personally think your review is all that is needed as it's rather comprehensive and of good quality, with a fair conclusion.

I think that's all we can ask of a review...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

Lol @ Jonny C (by the sounds of it everything he just said about FB's could be applied to him), I new one moron troll would have to take this thread down the 'fanboy' road. The review was horribly biased and mislead readers as the vast majority of people would agree, at least the ones on the right ...

No I didn't notice. Sounds fair enough though and was the right thing to do.

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

honestly i read this review first before apoptosis's review and i did think that this card was a better card than the 5870 in performance. with that said, im sure people dont read one review with only two three games tested and then buy the product itself. yes the article was misleading but i guess...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

I'm waiting to talk with Zotac on the review and what their thoughts are. I'm not sure why you guys keep talking about NVIDIA as they have nothing to do with this review at all. Zotac sent us the sample, so I am interested to hear their feedback on the review. I think people suspect Nv of having so...

Yeh, I don't understand why it's still up? It serves no value to the public and just makes Nv PR happy but makes LR look bad.

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

I wasn't defending him, I was pointing out that HAWX was a heavily favored ATi title. Example: http://www.legitreviews.com/images/reviews/1080/hawx.jpg So by your logic that title shouldn't have been used then because ATi cards were far and away the better hardware? I think this whole thing has bee...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

Just thought of something... HAWX may have better results on new nVidia hardware but historically it has been a benchmark dominated by ATi hardware since the HD 4xx0 series. Not sure I see a valid point to this, I have a feeling you feel sorry for the chap and are trying to defend him? If so that's...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

NVIDIA didn't send us out a GeForce GTX 470 on launch day for some reason,. They probably did not like this to much.. http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1264/1/ ^^^ Yep, but it's not just Legit Reviews, it's happened to 3 other review sites also (that I know of), that didn't please Nv PR. And to b...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

rhys216, NVIDIA didn't send us out a GeForce GTX 470 on launch day for some reason, so i had to source my own. I think the above comment (if true) is enough to show LR's is not a Fanboy site. I sincerely apologise for my accusations of corruption, and I'm sorry to see LR's get stained with some of ...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

@ Major_A

So you didn't see anything wrong with this review no?
Yeh, if he's really as good a reviewer as you say he is and that this was just a blip, then yes, it's sad to see him go, and he should definitely reconsider, but that doesn't change the fact that this review was unbelievably crap.

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

Just want to say I PM'd Apoptosis and from what he has now told me, I now genuinely believe Legit Reviews are indeed 'legit' . Further I trust that this review will be cleaned up appropriately at some point also, because as it stands it is simply damaging to LR's. @Gomeler If your actually 'legit' t...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

I apologize, if I do another GPU review I will conform with the rest of the reviewing world and run the same old benchmarks. At the end of the day your review put the 470 in an unrealistically good light compared with it's competitors. It would be far better for LR to repost the same benchamrks tha...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

I too had to register to voice my surprise. What a crock of sh1t :evil: I'm a Nvidia fan but this review was cringeworthy to the extreme. Just how much brown nosing did you do to Nvidia to get a free card to test? I really don't want to use the word "test" as it's an affront to other benchmarked te...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

I chose one resolution as my 24" monitor is temporarily unavailable and if you have a GTX 470 why would you game at 1280x1024? 1680x1050 was the highest resolution I could support at the time I did the benchmarks for this. I didn't explicitely choose NVIDIA biased benchmarks, I chose repeatable tim...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

Very embarrassing for Legit Reviews and Nvidia. It looks as if LR has sold it's soul to the devil, who ever it was at LR who thought that trading their credibility with Nv was a good idea... is in for a bit of a shock! MANY other forum members are grabbing their sick buckets, and adding LR to their ...
