Tom’s Hardware steers chip market, some say


Author: JT Smith

The Standard: “The size of Tom’s Hardware’s audience is less significant than its
influence. These are the alpha geeks to whom everyone turns to for
technical advice – 60 percent of them are IT professionals who are in the
business of buying and recommending hardware for their employers. So
when an AMD chip outperforms a pricier Pentium in one of Tom’s CPU
smackdowns, there’s a ripple effect on the market.”
