I think this is probably the best insight to the whole situation.

I agree with GN that there are some questionable testing methodologies but whether sincere or not I believe one of the co-founders of PT does come across here like they want to be transparent.

It sounds like Intel commissioned this v last minute and I think they gently encouraged testing to be done one way rather than another

Good that they are looking to sort it out though.

They have lost all credibility as testers IMHO as they deliberately and wilfully stacked testing in Intel's favour.

He gives some real deep insight to Intel's history of doing this with benchmarks in the past.
