Lets say we have 30 results of one setup (ie: GTX 670)
- 10 extreme overclocker scores
- 10 average scores
- 10 low scores
Taking only the first 3 top scores will not make a good average or a good idea of what a card can do BUT taking all scores will give better idea of what you should expect out of a card.
Lets take for example the GTX 690 VS HD 7990.
The HD 7990 has 3 results (104, 93 and 81 fps) and the GTX 690 has 14 results (from 101 to 77). If I take the top 3 (101, 99, 93) it will give higher average on the GTX 690 while you see the highest and lowest score is lower than the HD 7990 scores.
By the way, in all the setups we have, there are low and high
scores. Making the average is the best way. I have spent so much time in this thread, thinking how and why? And this is my conclusion. Check the graphs I posted comparing both of them, you have your answer in it. Its not like the order will change by much or at all.

Yes I know this and I can't do nothing about it, I have visited every Cards Owners Club and asked people with older cards to post a score. But the graphs are more intended for the current generation of cards. When next gen of cards arrive, it will be safe to compare HD 7xxx to HD 8xxx and comparing the GTX 6xx with GTX 7xx.
And by the way, the GTX 480 is not SO MUCH lower than the GTX 570. (Its 30fps VS 34 fps) not so bad. And MrTooShort
has a great score of 36fps with his GTX 480, all scores are helping to give a precise and accurate average. but nothing is 100% accurate when we have few results. For older gen of cards ONLY.
But compare with any reviewer results, and its the same final conclusionEdited by KaRLiToS - 5/5/13 at 3:23pm
