Thanks for the feedback everyone.
yah it is a better idea and dave does something similar when he writes up reviews...

might be an idea to test out a coupla different ways of displaying results to make it stand out more? in excel like you have the option of coloring fields so as to contrast them... might work better...

just an idea...

once i got used to it it was easier but my eyes were still wandering some (hope you don't think I am being too harsh... just providing feedback m8 )

-edit-

didn't see the other thread on this topic...

are the 2 gonna be merged or are they gonna remain separate?

Excellent review Clay

I can appreciate the time and effort of putting together an image quality comparison, which was a nice touch.

"Regarding temperature, the 6800 Ultra is not as hot-running as the last generation and I usually saw temperatures around 40C during idle and 60~70C under load."
I have a 6800 GT and it is nowhere close to 40C at idle. My GT is more like 57-59C idle and 75-82C under load, and that’s with a case temp around 29C. What are others who have the ultra getting temp wise? I'm amazed if there is that must difference simply because of the bigger heat sink/fan.

Theres a typo on page 4 clay, Sure you can fix that quickly though.

Quote:
Here, the BFG 6800 Ultra OC does quite a bit better in non AA/AF modes and 1024x769 with those on. The X800XT PE pulls slightly ahead once again with the higher fillrate demands.


The X2 Rolling Demo makes some use of DirectX 9.0 and so we'll see how these cards performed at various settings within the demo.

Thanks guys and thanks for the typo catch. Fixed now.

@fuelrod Some BFG cards have had Arctic Silver applied so that could be part of the reason.

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.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.

Hrm, they sure as heck didn't appy it on mine. Didn't affect my OC at all, but the temps on my GT are much higher than reported in this review.

I did do that, you not see the yellow cells/colored fonts? Me know Excel purdy gud. Coloring the entire column was considered but I didn't like it, too busy.

Not at all, thanks for the feedback. So far only you have SH64 have preferred a different style though. Some people like to see the resolutions on the same line. Plus, the red and green fonts should be pretty obvious I'd think. It was to everyone I showed prior to posting. Again, just personal preference and I'll probably provide the user with either option in the next review.
