Despite all of this though, I appreciate that Michael isn't completely biased towards nvidia, and seems to praise AMD's open source efforts.
    Their reasons for new Tegra porting have nothing to do with Phoronix.com but internally they use PTS for ARM performance testing so they need it to work, same for many other PTS Commercial users.

    Why did you assume they are doing it for him rather than to be able to test their products in the labs before release?

    They are doing it for themselves.... but why shouldn't that still be an honor that they picked "his" software?
