I was wondering what sort of scores people were getting at the video stress
test. I got 136.52fps.

My old computer : 4.3 FPS .
My new computer : 59.4 FPS .

59 might sound bad , but after getting FOUR , it's pretty nice .

How are you supposed to get the figure from it?

Probably not much, the best thing to do if you want higher fps is to water cool
or like I did, phase change cool your graphics card and then overclock it to
within an inch of it's life. CPUs above 3Ghz P4 or 3000+ A64 don't make a huge
difference in games no matter what they are or what you do to them. I only
overclocked mine for photoshop. Then again if you squeezed 130 odd fps out of an
AthlonXP 1800 then perhaps an FX55 would help out a little.

LOL. Out of curiosity, what system you got?

Good rig, you take your video seriously!

I'm interested to know how the higher end ATI cards are performing on this.

When I changed my HL video settings to the ones you posted, my fps dropped
to about 50 :(

re: I'm interested to know how the higher end ATI cards are performing on

I think that we are all victims of the marketing department. The human eye
cannot see past 24fps (tv). But I'll admit I was impressed going from a 9700
Pro to a 6800GT.

it doesnt make a difference whether we can see it or not... the game
goes on your fps for a lot of stuff... such as bullets. a higher fps
will give u a (small) advantage

Yeah ... things will be simulated faster and better the higher the
frame rate goes. The pooter will be free to do other things if it
doesn't have to spend so much effort on the graphics and sound. Things
like weapon effects (ballistics), AI and network traffic.

And it'll be quicker taking the control inputs as well ... FPS's
aren't as good an example here as driving games and flight sims are
.... but if you have a flight sim that goes down to 4fps when it's busy
(from a nominal 30odd), then at 120kts landing speed, you're going
about 67 yards per second, so the control inputs only hit every 16-17
yards. Not much time for corrections.

Translating that across to the fps world and you get a faster frame
rate translating into a better ability to track moving targets as the
control inputs will be smoother.

I agree though - for sheer visuals, the human eye and brain don't
update that quickly.
