Review editors and benchmarks don't suck

Pimprig have a nice little article up outlining our opinion on a recent article by K. Bennett recently published in CPU Magazine. Kyle essentially disses the majority of websites' review processes in favor of a "subjective experience" approach. Pimprig feels the article was pretty ludicrous. Here is a snip:

What Kyle is complaining about is that reviewing isn't standardized across the industry. So, him being [H]err Bennett, he figured he had better set the standard for everybody by using the "experience" method of reviewing. I would like to know how his "experience" method using his high end motherboard, top of the line RAM, dual processor CPU, and 7800GT video card relates to the "experience" an end user on a Socket A motherboard, 512K of value RAM, Barton processor, and Ti4800 video card. However, if he were to test two video cards and say "This gets an 8, this gets a 6." I believe the end user would be able to easily tell which card is better. Read on at PimpRig
