What Pisses Me Off - Page 2

post #11 of 30
the only reason I look at benchmarks is they are consistant. It is really hard (and time consuming) to look the numbers for all games at all resolutions at all settings. With 3dmark06 (which I assume you are referring to) is usually done with all the same values, so it gives you a general idea of a comparison. I don't think it correlates to real world performance, but it is the only one that is fairly consistant. Also, the fact that the CPU plays such a major role is bunk.

In the end, it is all epeen anyways. When I see kids get 2 9800 GTX's and they are running on a 19", I have to laugh. Why even buy them? Just add the cards to your sig rig as thats all you want anyways


(on another note, I feel this way about GFX card overclocks. Very few are ever proven to be stable. You will get these crazy overclocks and bench scores, but when you ask how long they ran ATI Tool etc., there is never an answer. I believe that 40%-50% of GFX OC's are not stable.)

The only time I see a reason to run benchmarks is to use it as a baseline for my system's performance to see if it's better, worse, or about the same.
example: install a new beta Nvidia driver
just my opinion

This isnt about whether a benchmark is a good comparison to real world gaming or not. Its about people saying that they want to see how "good" a card is, then totally disreguard the results when they're not what they wanted them to be.

Notice that its all Nvidia fans that are saying benchmarks dont matter? In this topic at least.

Question: Why dont they take a 9800GX2 and put it in the exact system that had the record 3870x2 in it? There shouldnt be any chipset problems because there's no Xfire/SLI with the top spot. That'd be a good comparison, no?

It takes into account the cpu waaay too much, so I always look at the SM scores to get a better idea of the performance .

I dont even check benchmark results in reviews, what I'm looking for is results from my favorite fps game (atm cod4) and how the card has performed with the resolution I use in gaming. I dont even get the whole benchmarking and overclocking thing, who got the highest scores. yey. who or whose dad got the biggest wallet. ofc I understand practical overclocking.

The nvidia people are just saying that to make themselves feel better because they know that their company is now inferior because they (collectively with the company) dont have the world record.

Ok from now on everyone lets say LETS SEE SOME RWP CHARTS (Real World Performance Charts). I never say lets see bechnies because they are worthless to me. I just like seeing the pretty graphics they shove out.

I only care about the new card that someone get...Yes I have asked for benchies but this was never directed towards ATI or Nvidia. If someone posts that he/she got a new card then I say "GIVE US BENCHIES DAMN IT" lol. you my friend need to chill out and relax. It's ok to like different things.
