That's not an "article", it's a sales brochure. I am not at all
surprised that marketing materials by a CM product vendor cast their
own products in a more favorable light than their competitors. You can
find similar language in marketing materials published by vendors
selling SVN solutions too.

Statements like this:

"In common global development conditions, tests have shown that it is
60 times faster than IBM Rational ClearCase and 3 times faster than
Subversion."

are really hard to use in a meaningful way as they don't say anything
about *what* was tested or *how* the testing was conducted.

Your own testing with your typical workloads, or even
testing/comparisons done by an independent 3rd party with full details
of what and how they tested, would be much more informative IMHO.
