Thanks my friend
So I started making a graph with TOP 3
Scores and I realize it wasn't worth it to continue building this graph because you clearly see that the order will barely change and if it changes, its due to the lack of results with some setups, usually the older generations.So my final conclusion
: if I make some graphs with top 3 results, I need to use setups that have MANY results... usually the current generation. But if I make a round-up with older gen, I need to make average of ALL results. I hope you understand that there is not millions of way to calculate the data we have now.
Like I said previously, example
: if I calculate all the HD 7970s (lets say 45 results total) , there are probably:
- 15 results that are highly overclocked and highly good chips
- 15 results that are good overclock
- 15 average and poor overclock
So making the average of all results will give a better idea than only using the top 3 results
Running one of my HD 7970 at stock was giving me around 43 fps, with a moderate/good OC was around 50 fps... and the average of all HD 7970 results is 51,7fps. So the average is already higher than my moderate OC, why use only the top 3 results?
Same thing goes for my GTX 680 AMP Edition, with boost I had 48 fps and its lower than the average. I don't see the point of using the top 3 results if the averages are almost spot on.Sorry for the basic graph but I stopped after realizing that it wasn't worth itEdited by KaRLiToS - 5/6/13 at 7:18pm
