no one I know uses this res , so not testing it is really great for 99.9999999% of home users who run @ 1080P

I have no plans to replace either of the two sub 1080p monitors, nor do I find 4k interesting in the least. All it means is £1000 worth of new GPUs and I will take 1080p with lots of FSAA thanks...
As for 1920 x 1200 ? I don't know any one who runs it. It's actually quite an oddball res and IIRC it was only really Dell who used it a lot and that's because non gamers wanted the extra height. Probably because those same designers etc came from 1600x1200 CRT monitors and the height loss in 1080p meant that some of the things they designed were not fully viewable (like me, I did around 100 emulator front ends for 1200 height and now I can't play any of them).
As for Bit-tech's testing methodology? yeah I too feel that sometimes it can leave a bit to be desired but hey, there are plenty of other sites around the net that offer up as much anal information as you could wish for, so I don't sweat it. I come here for the people, not so much the reviews. TBH? I don't think I've read a review in depth for about six months, mainly because I'm not looking to buy anything nor replace what I have.
Mantle is still in the very, very early stages and until some one embraces it properly and codes a game from the ground up (instead of whacking in a dodgy patch) it's going to be so so.
