No you're not allowed to apparently since they're "fundamentally" different.. lol
If I'm following this correctly, what Plex is saying is that you can't compare them clock for clock
, due to the architectural differences.
Like a 6990 @ 950 vs 590 @ 950.
That's why I bring up their potential OC from reviews, and use this example:
We can then compare a 6990 @ 940 vs a 590 @ 840, and see what types of FPS they produce.
Eventhough it's a 100 MHZ difference, it doesn't matter, because we're not comparing clocks, but rather what types of FPS each card produces at the OC'ed clocks each card is capable of.Edited by 2010rig - 3/23/11 at 2:04pm
