Default Rytr's Review of the eVGA 6800GT

Steve "Rytr" Angelly has put the wraps on his review of the eVGA e-GeForce 6800GT. One of the differences of this card noticeable immediately is found in the software bundle...the full version of Far Cry for FREE! Steve pits this card up against an ATI X800 Pro in games like Call of Duty, Far Cry, UT2K4 and Morrowind as well as few synthetic benchmarks.

You can always add some Doom 3 benchies later...I bet you'll be too busy playing it though.

Oh, we're always tinkering with it. This time around you'll notice that these are not images but pure HTML tables. I'm so fickle with how to present the data, not satisfied yet so I'm still tweaking. You guys were right though it is easier to read in this layout.

Sazar, I noted your suggestions and they are really appreciated. I don't think any of us are 'set' on any single method of recording benchmark results and I, for one, will always appreciate your comments and suggestions.

Clay, think I just summed up my review of the eVGA 6800 GT and DoomIII...AMAZING! (benches not included)

Thanks OWA!

well clay tbh I just pointed out the format I had tabulated with when I wrote up my little piece

it LOOKED neater to me... but then if I was alone in saying that it would mean nothing

I do like the way you guys have done the formatting

if you lads want I wouldn't mind volunteering to proof-read stuff... I have some time off during the latter half of the day usually no obligation

WHy does the X800 Pro have such a staggering lead in FarCry 8AF but then loses it bigtime at 16AF? It's like 100% faster with 8AF.
