"In our recent GeforceFX 5900 Ultra story, we noticed the Nvidia board was well ahead of ATI's Radeon 9800 Pro in Futuremark's 3DMark2003 benchmark, but the two boards were much more evenly matched in our GameGauge application benchmark suite.
We've just discovered certain test anomalies that indicate to us that Nvidia may be special-casing 3DMark2003, throwing away work, to attain higher scores.
We had thought, with the GeForceFX 5900 Ultra now out of the bag, that we were in for a bit of a post-launch lull. But as it turns out, things are just starting to get interesting.
We stated in our GeForceFX 5900 Ultra review that we found the 256MB 5900 Ultra's 3DMark03 results were faster than those delivered by the Radeon 9800 Pro 256MB card, while the 3D GameGauge scores of the two cards were more evenly matched. We found this somewhat odd, and attributed this disconnect to 3DMark03's using vertex and pixel shader code, whereas seven of the eight tests in 3D GameGauge do not..."
Yes I thought hienniggers posts over there were hillarious. He's making up all kinds of computer difficulties with hardware he doesnt even own...He's telling everyone he soft modded a 9500 into a 9700, and needs help. His parents didnt give him enough attention growing up.
Eden I was referring to why don't we get info first (it was Twitch's addition to our sarcastic debate), I said, alpahbetical order "Tom's Hardware guide" i so far down the list, after all of the above, so if we made it "All..." then it would come first. Get it now?
Man I hate explaining jokes, it kills them, just kills 'em!
