Those aren't "benchmarks", just review scores. Interesting to note that they thought the GTXP control panel was 'complicated'. WTF? It's the simplest thing in the world.

"an overly complicated setup process" What? It takes like 5 seconds to install the drivers.

The reviewer also gave the Live Platinum a higher score in Features than the GTXP, even though in the GTXP review, he clearly stated (multiple times) that it had more features.

I guess this is just my day to pick apart reviews, but statements like "make the Sound Blaster Audigy cards the best you can buy" really tick me off, when semi-professional cards can be found for around the same price that will run circles around the Audigy.
