    How about adding Intel open source graphics as well to the benchmark ? Much more cost efficient for those who want open source graphics -_-
    Check the link below - This is only the iris 540 that has equal performance to a gtx940, there are also Iris pro 580 coming out soon (core i7 6770hq, i5 6350hq)

    Maybe if the articles are low quality you shouldn't be reading them? Personally, I find this site most useful for news about ongoing development. Outside of a few cases, I don't really care about benchmarks.
    Not being able to pay for a subscription is one thing, but not paying at least a minimal subscription fee because of some philosophical position about how the economy should work and THEN complaining about Michael possibly blocking content through adblock detection takes balls.

    See my response above. It doesn't only affect freeloaders -there are premium users who have ublock enabled for privacy reasons. Me for example.

    Well, since the rule requires the style to begin with centering you can swap order or better yet move it to a class since it's used on every graph. You can also report false positive to easylist maintainers - they respond to reports like this quickly.

    I would say the fact the adblock software is blocking legitimate content is your issue rather than the site owners.

    Why would any site owner spend time and effort to help put themselves out of business?
    Depends which revenue stream is bringing more money in: people converting from free to premium or ads. Also graphs missing (with no mention of adblock) don't make people disable adblock - they make people leave.

    PTS does log the sysfs pstate info, but now with being on debugfs, that won't be recorded unless I am running PTS as root, which is also why the Radeon clocks on the open driver never get exposed either in most of my results.
    Hm, that's a little annoying. But since you reclock by hand (presumably), you could similarly, by hand, log the results of the reclock (just cat the pstate file). I'm not suggesting altering anything produced by PTS, but in the article, it'd be good to note that like oh, the max core clock is 1GHz, but nouveau clocked it at 200MHz or whatever. That should hopefully put the results into context.

    I'm just concerned that people are drawing conclusions based on your results along the lines of "This is the performance of this game with nouveau on any GTX 760", which is totally not the case -- it's the performance of nouveau with *that* GTX 760, and reclocking might go very differently on another GTX 760.

    As has been said already, I did nothing on my end... It's the problem of the adblocker/other plugins. As someone already mentioned on this page, sounds like someone added a rule to the plugin that any div that's centered to the page gets blocked.

    As for adblocking, I turned it off to test, six, yes six adverts came up on a single page. That's atrocious.
