BTW, great work Chris!
This topic has been discussed already in other threads i believe .
yes the R3xx/4xx series are using fp24 while the NV4x is using fp32 which explains why a single X800 usually performes better in HL2 .
as for how fair .. well its fair , because IQ is the same or at least nearly identical on both video cards.
