You are talking to Don now, arent't you? Because I was exactly *not* saying that. Benchmarks, simplistic as they are, have a value if choosen somewhat carefully and with warning that they often give only one side of the coin (e.g. CPU's integer performance). My complaint was about choosing a stupid one-sided benchmark such as a blur filter. Near-to-nothing value in that. It's a few lines of code execute a million times. Any tiny bias in those lines towards the ways of either UAE or Trance will multiply with that factor (a million) and totally skew the result. Next filter, totally different result.
