So then, the Guru3D VGA Charts for Spring and Summer 2011 are here. It's then end of April and most DX11 graphics cards from both AMD and NVIDIA have been released. Yes it's about time for another massive update to the charts. Some charts have up-to sixty graphics cards slash combinations embedded. All these cards have been tested on the very same PC with the very same OS. Here in the lab we have a twin, e.g. we have two PCs build exactly the same, one for AMD (ATI) the other for NVIDIA graphics cards. The components, BIOS settings and OS are 100% the same on each system. that includes Windows updates. The only thing different would bee the graphics drivers.

Cant believe mine is at the bottom but due to it being superclocked to 4670 levels it should be around the 9600 gt range.

It's at the bottom because of resolution and AA. 4650 4670 run most things really well at normal rez's 1600 x 1050 1600x900 1440x900 1366x768. Though they struggle at the higher normal end panels on some stuff.

But 1920x1080 = 2,016,000 pixels
1600x900 = 1,440,000 pixels
Which is 38 percent more workload.

Entry/mainstream graphics card give similar experiences on entry mainstream monitors. You don't even need all the AA on them because your not trying to make 720 p textures look good at triple the resolution.

But what do you say about a review that calls 45 to 60 frames a second a "good" gaming experience and 30 frames per second a "poor" gaming experience. When there's so many games out there that 30 frames per second is all you need to make them work perfectly.

They could just use 2560x1600 monitors but those are just aweful no matter what you throw at them. It's just tooooo many pixels.

Ya I'm mad that my 1440x900 monitor died. I hate this 1600x900. It's just too much extra width. 1680x1050 monitors are better ratio. 1400x1000 would be perfect.
