Not really the same thing, but... I'm learning Games Design in college and I've learned in Programming that many programmers are LAZY. They will write bad code with the idea that it will be fixed in the future, but it never is, simply built upon.

The best way to make money is to cheat ofc


Yeah I do think some companies do cheat as far as benchmarks go, but mostly I think they exaggerate the performance improvement or difference by using graph bars, and making them extra long, so it looks like theres a more apparent difference then there really is..


A while ago some very prominent video card had hard wired some test in the hardware to act real fast on this commonly used benchmark software
