    The u=root portion just meant the user was running the tests as root on their own system.

    Yes, I figured that (and changed my previous post accordingly). Now the question is: did somebody really have a Cypress card and tested it using the Phoronix Test Suite? (perhaps some of the AMD guys on this forum? Or perhaps it was Qaridarium , or maybe Phoronix is denying everything because there must be a very strict NDA on publishing about the new hardware).

    Or did somebody mess with the submitted results and found a way to submit a dummy graphics card name?

    my bet would be someone messed with submitted results...

    it is concievable that it could have been one of the AMD guys, i kinda doubt it though. i don't see them putting benchmarks of a pre-production card on the internet like that.

    Hmm there are at least 2 tests from that guy

    One with 8.65.3(ATI Open GL Version 2.1.9000)
    http://global.phoronix-test-suite.co...923-9841-16162

    and one with 8.65.4(OGL 2.1.9000)
    http://global.phoronix-test-suite.co...30-28667-14083

    The leaked one was 8.54.2(OGL 2.1.8975) not .3 or was there anonther leak i'm not aware of?

    Well, I tried running a benchmark myself. The default is to submit to the database after running the benchmark, so if you don't pay attention it might happen. I don't think there is a way of removing the results from the database after you submitted it...

    I'd assume though that inhouse testing with the cards happens in an environment without an Internet connection. That's what I'd do in an experimention environment anyway. ^^ And I don't see any reason why the pros would be any more stupid than me.

    I know that some people, those who have the right connections, sometimes get a nice surprise from hardware manufacturers. Like a new piece of hardware that isn't yet available to the general public. It could be the same in this case... or perhaps AMD gave a couple of gpu's to some of their employees, just for home use.

    You never know... but could still be that somebody found a way to change the name of the graphics card. But still... if somebody wants to start a rumour, he would make it more obvious probably. Would you call it `EG Cypress'? Nah... `HD5870' or `EverGreen Cypress' makes much more sense.

    I think it might be real... however, who submitted this will probably remain a mystery.
