The logical theory is that the bar is 4 times as high in a performance chart then this would mean its 4 times as fast, logically. So noone can really say witch one is right as we dont know what the numbers on the left means, we can only guess here. I'd like to see on things from the logical side.

Ps, there's no need to flame and behave like a kid. Youre welcome to take part in this discussion if you feel so. But keep doing as you did in your first post is gonna make your time on nvnews short believe me.

That is because nVidia cut off 0.0 - 0.8 part of the graph to make you think this. I love nVidia, but this is Marketing 101. Dumb people look at the bars and say, well that one is 4x higher so it is 4x better. Then those dumb people buy the card under that assumption.

I am a huge nvidia fan, and will get the GTX 280, but it is not 4x better than the current generation. It is about 1.8x faster like the other guy said. Which is good enough.
