[FS] 9800GTX+ Review with 4850 comparison - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Couple of issues with this review IMHO:

(1) They are the only ones to already review the 9800GTX+ on the same day that it was announced that it will be arriving sometime in July! That strikes me as odd.
(2) Every review site complained that they did not have enough time to test the 4850 in detail because of the sudden removal of NDA, yet these guys sound like they have had everything done and ready 3 months ago.
(3) Every other review shows that the 9800GTX loses to the 4850, but this one is showing opposite. Well, let's see, NV releases an OC card to compete with stock 4850 but the review site does not OC the 4850? Weird.
(4) No thorough analysis on price/performance ratio.
(5) Reviews of GTX260 are unusual. I have not seen it reviewed almost anywhere else, but it seems to be very comparable to the GTX280. Why the need for GTX280 then at $700?
(6) By the time the 9800GTX+ hits the stores at $229, the 4850 will probably be around $169-$179, giving you even more bang for the buck. No mention on that either.

Agreed. In every 4850 review I've read, especially the Guru3D one (which I trust the most), the 4850 beat the 9800 GTX soundly. In this review the 4850 is at the bottom of the barrel most of the time. :/

Very true.....this review doesn't correlate with Guru3d and Anandtech, some of the most renowned hardware review sites.
I mean after finishing the review this is the exact opposite of the results I've seen.

Isn't Lost planet mostly made to run on nvidia cards?

Soooo.....Anandtech vs this site:


Guru3d shares similar results w Anandtech, but you can't copy their images because their flash images.
Check out Bioshock.




THe OC on the + model MIGHT account for the differences in 9800GTX in the first graph, but Bioshock is a whole other story.........who knows what they did there.

I call bs. In all other benchmarks I have seen the 4850 is comfortably ahead of the 8800GTX and 9800GTX. Yet it is at the bottom most of the time...Plus they are using Beta drivers.

I'd like to know what miracle drivers this place is using. Every single nVidia card performs better in the Firing Squad tests than in the Anandtech tests, especially the GTX 260, which has an extra 20 frames tacked onto its score in both tests.

Are they just listing max frame rate and not average?

I think this is a BS review that this site has released, one thing is that they don't have these cards if nvidia are releasing them in July the sample cards wouldn't have gone out so fast and not to a minor site like that.

Secondly the drivers they are using are most likely the 9800GTX drivers which are mature in comparison, although it is the same card, it is clocked differently and would probably have it's own set of drivers and may in fact react differently.

Thirdly all other reviews of the 4850 show it completely destroying the 9800GTX cards, I think this sites author is a bit of a fan boy with too much free time and his site is lacking the Epenis attention it wants.
