Intel and BAPCo ‘just good friends’

Updated 'Independent' benchmark outfit cohabiting with Chipzilla

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

When we asked Intel last week what they were doing to alleviate their self-professed 'difficulty' with benchmarks not showing how well Rambus really performed against PC-133 SDRAM, they told us: "We're working with the major benchmarking organisations to develop more realistic test methodologies which will show the kind of performance of which Rambus is capable."

But it wasn't until Van Smith, Technical Editor of Tom's Hardware Guide, suggested we checked out the other Register, the one which lists domain names, that we discovered the grisly truth: that BAPCo, the benchmarking outfit that all hardware review sites rely on, is working closer with Intel than is seemly.

In fact, 'incestuous' might be the word we're looking for here.

A search for BAPCo returns the following address:

Business Applications Performance Corporation (BAPCo) (BAPCO-DOM)
2200 Mission College Blvd MS
SC12-608 (Sc12 = building number, 608 = maildrop)
Santa Clara, CA 95052

Whilst a search for Chipzilla tells us they're to be found at:

Intel Corporation (INTEL-DOM)
2200 Mission College Blvd,
P.O. Box 58119
Santa Clara, CA 95052-8119

Just fancy that! ®
