I am surprise about this verdict. what do you think about it?

LOL!

In the review they rate the 1Dx as the best full frame DSLR available. Sounds reasonable, though I'm sure arguable too.

In the 5D3 review they say ...

"Excellent image quality is assured in all sorts of lighting conditions, with results generally being almost as superb as from the 1D X."

Apart from that, the "benchmarks" don't agree with anyone else - even DxO!

What do I think? ...

I'd go elsewhere for camera reviews!

Just as the left don't get their news from Fox, we want to hear what we want to hear.

Aside from any errors, the review was pretty mealy mouthed and ended up recommending every camera in one way or another.

Techradar is not authentic when it comes to camera reviews. Its not their cup of tea. Just some arcane reviews & inane theory there.

I'd say don't pay attention to lab tests and decide for yourself.  I own a D600 which DxO says is the third best sensor.  I say a single number they can put on something like that is meaningless and doesn't tell even a sliver of the story.

TechRadar performance curves have weird shapes and their data tells different stories from everyone else's. I suspect that they don't know how to use their DxO analysis tools. I would take their performance data with a large pinch of salt.
