Windows 7: thought it would be helpful

thought it would be helpful

Hey guys,

I'm not advertising another website or anything like that but alot of you helped me to get a graphics card, especially telling me which was better than what and all that. So I was finally able to settle for the gt220.

I found this webpage to see where my card stands and I thought that you guys might find it interesting as well:

ATi 4870 single beats ATi 4870 X2?

Vista 64 Ultimate, Windows 7 64 Ultimate, Ubuntu 9.10

What I found odd was the Radeon 5870 beat the Radeon 5970

Win7 Ultimate x64

That passmark test isn't always accurate. For instance when I ran it when I had XP x86 my 3d score was 40fps higher than in windows 7 x64.

Looking over that list I wouldn't trust it. For instance a GTX 260(even the superclocked core 216) isn't going to beat a GTX 295.

Yeah I dont know how accurate it is, or isnt. I just saw some people discussing the various graphics cards on a forum and they were using this page. So I just wanted to see where my card stands and decided to share it here :)
