Gradient has decided to end the rat-race in publishing of performance data. The rubbery nature of these figures makes it impossible to obtain or prove them with any acceptable degree of accuracy. In the last few years this situation lead to publishing one guesswork after another and there was always a room for improvement on the paper. In the end the bolder the manufacturer, the more dazzling figures they produced. This reality has been well known to everybody in this industry for a long time and it is time to pull the plug on this escalating image building hysteria. Some other manufacturers are following suit already and we can only hope more will join that number. If you want to see the usual "precise figures", sorry, we can't help - we don't have them. We don't feel it is fair publishing any figures in the absence of fixed standards for recording of performance data in this industry.
