A lot faster without tessellation, but still choppy.

Max settings means everything maxed, tessellations and everything. Looks like your results were similar to mine for scene 2, but then again were both using GTX 600's. I'm a bit surprised that it got so choppy at later scenes, and that could be counter-proof towards TPR's claims. Still, we need some AMD results to be able to compare to. Any AMD users want to step up to the plate?

For science!

I'll do it now on my 7950 if you tell me which program and what settings on heavenbench to use.

Thanks for the pics. Those results look fine to me.

Can you use the crop function on Frafs to cut the vertical axis down to 60ms to match what EastCoast and I posted (click on the left side in the shaded area on the axis in Frafs)? The scale makes it hard to see the detail.

I've just left home and I'll be back in about 2 to maximum three hours and then I'll be able to. I'll add a far cry 3 latency stat to the list as well once I'm back.

Edit: i really didn't give the article my full attention. But to my understanding it should exceed 33ms as seldomly as possible?

Putting words in my mouth is about as worthless to me as it is reading through nearly 200 posts worth of fanboy drivel.
I just bought a $300 video card because I wanted to, not because I feel like I have to settle some personal vendetta that people in this thread have suddenly decided that they're going to have because Tech Report found something that doesn't add up in your minds. Do you feel me on this? Trust me... I did not get this card to be famous, popular, or to appease ANYONE in this thread. I got it because I wanted to get it and because my current 5870 is starting to age. I've been with AMD for the last 3 generations, and now, I think it's time for a change.
By the way, I was with nvidia for EVERY generation before I got my wife an HD 4870, so don't give me that crap about being biased or a fanboy. I will make an impartial decision based on experience once I received the card. If the 660 Ti is smoother, I will notice it. If it isn't, I will notice that too... and trust me, I will post results one way or another. thumb.gif

If you want to do anything seriously, forget about feeling and look into measurements. Feeling is something subjective, whereas measurements isn't.

Measurements (such as higher framerates) mean nothing unless the experience corresponds with the data. You can have a game that runs at 120 fps, and it can feel worse than a game running at half that if the game is not running at a smooth and constant rate. If the 660 Ti actually is better, I will notice it, both by feel and by the data I collect from it.

Thanks for this. It's hard to tell, but it looks like you are using vsync/triple buffering on the heaven benchmark? The periodic up and down frame times is indicative of vsync. Could you check if you are?

Also, do you mind uploading the raw data? I want to see if I can run some side by side statistical analysis. Thanks!
