UserBenchmark calls Media "incompetent smearers" in the face of criticism

This is not how you respond to criticism.

Read more about Userbenchmark's response to its benchmark weighting criticisms.

Aka "We are Intel fanboys and will do anything to make sure daddy Intel isn't shown in a bad light." Why else would they discount anything beyond 8T?

The people who run UserBenchmark are a load of deluded ****ers. They still believe 4C8T is all we need yet in the real world, applications are utilizing up to 32C64T. The world of enthusiast computing isn't just single threaded games, never is, and never was.

It really does grind my gears when software designers pull underhanded stunts like this which in turn makes a community worse since it breeds toxicity. As much as I'd love to say boycott stuff like this, we all know there is a huge circlejerk who won't, and they're the loudest ones and get the biggest platform to scream about it!

Blatant bias is different to a difference in opinions.
I don't trust a single person who takes money from a company and then is expected to give un-biased opinions on that companies products and the majority of that sites advertising has links to intel or intel based products. What did we expect?

I have been vocal about reviewers being biased towards video rendering and blender results instead of recommending adequate CPUs for different workloads. Userbench went one step further and thrown them all into the same basket. No one should visit this site. They can moan as much as they like. This is a definition of a click-bait site that has only profit in mind no matter how misleading their content is. They will soon be buried by responses from proper reviewers.

Which CPU is the best? Well it depends on what you do. It should be "What CPU is best for your use case?" Pugetsystems' team has proper approach to the subject. They even organize them by the application that you use and not just workload in general. GN also started stating for whom is reviewed CPU meant for. For some things AMD wins, for others Intel. Gone are the days when 6950X was the best CPU for everything.

Bias is across the board though, was really noticeable when AMD 5700XT was released with some reviewers spending more time talking about RTX than the performance level of AMD

Jokes on them. All reviewers have to do is get together and agree to ignore their software. Less and less publicity, less money, then they cave and apologize, but nobody cares.
