Thumbs up Good job Max

Thanks for your time and effort Clay on your BFG review. I have now made my decission on which card I will get.

I was talking to Rage last night on Ventrilo and he introduced me to the GT but this solidified it.

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

Well done Max !!

i'm surprised to see that the o/ced 6800 is around 40% faster in FarCry's Carriar demo @1600x1200x4aax16af than the regular 6800Ultra . (26fps to 36fps)
are you quite sure about these numbers Clay ??!

nice review...

woulda perhaps been prudent to include a horizontal tabulating method rather than vertical as it allows for easier corrolation but other than that a nice job...

/me plans to read it again a bit later...

haven't read all the fine details yet

@SH64 I'll double check those here in an hour or so and let you know. I did double check everything before posting but I was up some nights quite late.

@Sazar Yeah, I tried that at first...I'm experimenting with different ideas but settled on being able to see the resolutions on same line. It's a personal preference really and I might add both styles in my next review so user has the choice.

Would everyone agree that this style is easier/faster to read than traditional bar graphs though? A bar/line graph of this kind of data gets a bit squirrely to decipher IMO.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Okay, here is the result from FRAPS' log file:

The lines in red indicate the note that I prepend in the FRAPS log file before each run so I don't lose track.

1600 4/16 3.0
2004-07-10 02:08:26 - FarCry
Frames: 1573 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 26.217 - Min: 15 - Max: 96

1600 4/16 455/1250
2004-07-10 02:41:06 - FarCry
Frames: 2162 - Time: 60000ms - Avg: 36.033 - Min: 20 - Max: 111

I admit that this does sound high. I recall running it again at the time but I will triple check ASAP. I still have the XTPE in my machine right now though.

EDIT: I neglected to label that OC'd run with "3.0" but it is, in fact the 3.0 section of my FRAPS log file.
