DX9 Benchmarking: Important benchies left out
Anand compared the R300 to GF4, R250s, ...
That's all very nice but... how fast is it with higher color precision?
Higher color precision is a DX9 feature developers will be able to use very easily. It's also something pretty usefull.
However, each company will likely have a different system for it. Only time will tell if nVidia or ATI got the best system.
Basically, what i'm saying is that you can't judge NV30/R300 performance with 32 bit color. It should be tested with more if you get high FPS anyway - nobody needs 100 FPS, but higher color precision can be very nice.
I'm doing this message for two reasons:
1. I want to make everyone remember current R300 benchies are nice, but we still got no higher color precision number ( and that's important! )
2. I'd like to see sites like Anand do that type of test once they'll get their hands on a R300 and, later, a NV30.
Thanks for reading, and if you got any feedback, feel free to express yourself!
