Default Best review for all new cards (GTX280, 260, 4870, 4850)

http://www.egielda.com.pl/?str=art&id=4400

Posted this in both GTX200 series and 4870 series review thread, but this should deserve a seperate thread.

Where most reviews just test 4 or 5 same games over and over. This review has almost 40+ different games. Really gives a much more detailed picture.

Wow, HD48xx series does well in FarCry with AA, I bet ATI wish Crysis had the same results.

really wish more reviewers would do reviews like this. I'm sick of seeing the same games over and over being reviewed.

I say best review if you speak Polish. When I look at a review I actually like to read it not just look at the numbers. Since I speak Czech i can understand some Polish, maybe this makes it even more difficult for me trying to understand it completely. Not sure if this deserved third post. About the sticky, sure a good sticky for Polish site. Plus we already have official review sticky for all this cards. So why not just keep it there?

You better read again what I said and this was not my point. I do prefer to read the review. I also did question if this should become sticky or if it needed to be posted 3 times.
Since when all the reviews become crap? (I mean the not Polish one).
Just about all reviews have more than 4 games you talked about, except the limited HD 4870x2 PREVIEW, you we will see many more games in the real reviews, when NDA is completely lifted.
Anyway you know my point I know yours, end off discussion for me.

Reviews take a lot of time and they generally benchmark recent releases because they put the most strain on systems, plus, the games are current and people want to know how Grid or Crysis runs, not a game from 2-3 years ago. I think most people can come to the conclusion that Source Engine games like Half Life 2 are going to run VERY well on newer cards. I don't mind reviews that do 5-6 games, I don't care about Quake 4 or UT 2004 performance anymore.

With that said, the site is in Polish but all you need to get the point are the numbers.
