Apparently the discussion of indexing video cards with a "metescore" is not allowed on this forum by the moderator... could it be that it's in the intrest of the big companies and not the people?

It's nothing against the new idea whiplock, it's just for the better of this forum that opinionated discussions do not exist. Countless people could be banned because of trolling, flaming, name-calling, etc.

I understand now... din't think about trolls killing an educated duscussion?!?!... okay :o ) If anything else, Tom's could devise such a system and a software program to help us provide a score (single number) for all of use to use?

Done.

A number system used by one site would be criticized by all others as well. Not to mention it would require a dedicated staff to maintain these numbers through refreshes, driver updates, and new cards. Not to mention They would have to redo every benchmark.

i think the system should be coded based on the date of the card manufactured (by the chinese calendar) and then set into binary so that the

Nvidia 9800GTX gets a score of 1011100110
while the ATI 4850 would be a 1001011101

you would then need to reverse code it to see the better card but it still make more sense then the Nvidia naming schemes

The question was basically why my original post on Metescoe idea was closed by mod. It was closed to prevent the usual dead end they lead to, and stop the trolls before they get started killing a good discussion. It's a lot of work keeping troll post from killing a thread, and the topic of "Indexing video cards" or simular "Metescore for video cards" seem to always lead to a mess.

I'm sure we all want a system like this, but there are those that don't want us to have it. Until we all make our voices known on the demand for such a system, we will not get it. That's really what I was aiming at.

The only real question, do you want a system like this or do you not. Save the reasons why or why not for later so as to not kill the thread.

Thanks

Whiplock

Hahaha thanks for linking to the original thread mousemonkey, i needed some entertainment today.

The reason you cant do power indexing is because you cant apply mathematics to an arbitrary numbering system. You can try, but all of us who actually realize that they are arbitrary numbers and are actually good with math will get a kick out of it.

Maybe they will start naming each card in a series, i want to see him try to screw up number theory to make it work with words.

I agree, hunter. This whole indexing number thing reminds me of what I saw working a dairy one day. Needless to say, what come out of the bulls' back ends MADE much more sense. This idea just needs to be removed off the forums for they haven't, and will never, make any sense.

We should have our own little off-topic area for us in the graphics section wher, as long as we maintain a very small contributive status towards the OP, we can talk about whatever.


Trustory; in every system I own, my graphics card is always the bottleneck.

Athlon 1gh
256MB Ram
FX5200

Athlon 2ghz
1GB Ram (DDR-200)
X700

E1400 C2D (2.0 -> 2.4ghz)
2GB DDR667
7600GT

Q8200 (SX2800)
4GB DDR3-1066
Radeon HD4650


How about you guys, what;s your systems of old?

Also, uhm...indexing...
Wait, we were insult mousemonkey.

One of my systems of old is one of my 3dfx boxes. K6-2 550mhz, 320mb ram, 15gb hd, 3dfx voodoo5 5500 and a junked 500w psu. One other is a vintage gateway 2000 with win 95, p1 mmx 200mhz, voodoo3 2k, 64mb ram, 1.5gb hd. Those are some on my "old" rigs while my main and second dairy rigs are a different story.

Sure if lowest setting it may start plus I would have to dump in a DX9 class card with at least 128mb ram as well clean out the old ram and put in at least 758mb of crummy SDR ram plus a newer drive then it may start if ISSE isn't required that is. I guess I am one of a few that had crysis running on a vintage 9800pro not just any a AIW version. Plus it did TV and FM radio rather well.
