Our Mission

We wanted to create a site that was independent of vendor influence and 100% pro-consumer based for Games and Hardware.  With that, the site and data has to be real world driven with regular updates and retain historical data for game and hardware benchmarks.  This is an enablement for consumers to have a central location to review their buying options and become informed based on their own criteria.

 

Progress

We are continuously hard at work gathering detailed statistical information for numerous games and GPUs of the past and present.  We will release individual articles on new products while retaining historical information for viewing.  Please keep in mind, this is not our day job and this was started as a project we had a passion for.

 

Expectations

This site contains information gathered through various tools, instruments and software.  Controls are placed on each benchmark run and each GPU or CPU being tested will carry the same conditions as those before it.  Benchmarks are intended to sample a game or workload and provide an idea of performance.  Unfortunately, it's not going to yield the same results for an entire game or workload but should be considered a good sampling of expected performance.

It's important for us to set the correct expectation before you view any content on this site.  Remember, this site was created for you (the consumer) and it's meant to enable you to purchase the best product for your budget.  Because of this, we have tried to include systems that are entry, middle and high end.

We are not big enough (yet), to have samples provided or given by vendors and thus all hardware being used has been purchased by us.  We will clearly mark what has been provided by vendors when that changes and we won't accept free samples if review restrictions are placed upon them.

 

Monetization

In simple terms, how do we make money doing what we do? Honest answer, we don't really. Most hardware and games being reviewed are purchased independently by us. We might get a sample unit here or there but currently we have no direct dealings with manufactureres or vendors. Our business model is based around you and your support. This is done through Patreon, Google AdSense and Associate/Affiliate programs (Amazon). This means we are crowd funded by you and everybody that visits our sites, clicks our links on products or is kind enough to provide a monthly pledge through Patreon. We want to be very transparent about this topic and show that our intent and content is focused around you.  That said, if you enjoy our content or can appreciate our Mission, consider donating through Patreon or use our affiliate link when purchasing items on Amazon.  In advance, thanks for the support and consideration!
