    What's bullshit is using a line graph for data points that aren't a series.

    This chart also demonstrates the time-honored bullshit technique of cutting off the bottom of the scale to exaggerate the difference between two data sets.

    I doubt that. My resource is IT journalist and I can trust him. He obtained this graph from AMD in non-public PDF presentation.

    If it was remake, the swindler would be AMD itself.

    I know which graph do you mean, I saw that. it had the same author - AMD. So it is obvious, it has same visual style.

    Maybe Michael Larabell could confirm authenticity of this graph, because he may obtained same presentation from AMD.

    The quality of the picture is so horrible that it's pretty much impossible to say whether it's a fake or not just by looking at the pixels imo. Someone used way too tight lossy compression for that image whether on purpose or not.

    But UT3 and Crysis are not even playable in wine on the Catalyst driver...

    Unless this is a prerelease of some awesome driver coming up...

    i call bullshit. AMD would need to pump billions into the linux driver, and wine, to yield that kind of results.
