Reading the "GeForce 8 shoot out article linked from the home page I have to ask a question..... Is the person conducting those tests possibly say..hmm a nurse? or maybe a meat cutter?? Because really, those numbers he has posted for the 8800 GTS 640MB don't even come close to the stock performance of my card...much less the OC'd version of my card. I hate it when these journalists post stuff like this, there are people out there that take this stuff as fact and those numbers are just plain WRONG.

The numbers are...well..just wrong e.g. the min FPS listed for stalker... underground after saving mole, when you go past all that green goo is about the most demanding area I can think of FPS wise in the game... my MIN FPS with those same settings in that area is about 25 FPS higher @ 1600 X 1200 ... 40 FPS higher with the transparency AA off.

also most of the benchmark results are nearly identical for the 320/640 gts' @ 1920x1200, thats goes against all previous results ive seen or what people have said being that the 320mb gts starts to show its failings at around 1600x1200
What gives?

nvidia actually sends these people cards...for free...for them to put out lame-o reviews like this? I think I know what I'm doing in my spare time once I get finished with my degree in web programming/analysis. I could use some free stuff, and I can give the readers a better review than that BS.
