Have you seen the FSX benches. There may be some major glitches with this chart. (in FSX, a 7900GT gets 23 FPS, as does a 8800GTX)

:lol:  Copy Editors don't do much good when they have been drinking the good stuff! I still can't believe they actually wrote "ati 7800gtx and nividia x1950xtx." How in the heck could you get that screwed up!? :lol:

Rumor has it, Tom is off on some beach kicking back and the place was bought out by a bunch of corporate goons :wink:

Be that as it may, this place has had some horrible proofreading and copy-editing lately. :(

Or it could be the Jessica Simson was the one who made up the chart.That woud be understandable.Ghehehehehheheheh :wink:

Anyone notice what resolution they are using and the fact there is no single 8800GTX benchmark?

Hell I could get over 100FPS on my 7900GTX at that res, but I want to know how the 7900GTX compares to the 8800GTX at 16x12 w/AA and AF (I know how they compare, but this chart is just sad). Why use such a LOW res when you are benchmarking for GPU usage...wth man wth.

vodka would get the X2900XTX confused with the X1950XTX, it takes tequila to get nVidia confused with ATI. 8O

Where does bourbon come in, because that's what I like.
April 26, 2007 5:20:04 PM

I'd love to see someone at THG reply to this because I Cleeve wouldn't let this fly if he knew about it.

i cannot believe you though this worthy of a thread. if you had looked in the proper thread about this, i.e the one linked to the article then you would see this has already been mentioned.

for christ sakes people this is not a big deal, IMO none of the mistakes in the articles are. many of them are so small you have to be really ****** up in the head to make such a big deal about them.

what is with you people bashing THG all the time, if you do not like it do not visit the site and do not whine on the forums.

Be Cool my friend, we were just kidding...no offense to THG. 8)
i my self like my THG site, it's my homepage & i visit it at least 2 time a day if i don't go to university.Be as Cooooooool as your rig... 8)

I don't think it's a big deal. I just happened to come across it by chance. Everyone makes mistakes, even professionals

Exactly. Someone needs to point them out in order to be corrected, now I didn't visit the UK site and didn't know it had already been mentioned. Oh well, these things happen, but if we can get it corrected then it is time well spent.

Yeah, its not really a big deal. I really just wonder about some of the results, they seem really low. The ATI/NVidia is just a typo, but some of these results are just weird (Flight Sim X, all resolutions).
