The latest performance slides of NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 660 and GTX 650. The slides show gaming performance of both cards against competitors from AMD and also pit them against previous generation mid-end cards of the same price point.
It all depends on the settings used. With 4x and 8x anti-aliasing the Radeon cards tend to do better.
ahahah yea ok
dude the ati cards from the past and the amd cards from now do tend to get better frames when AA is cranked up shit tons. But I still prefer Nvidia. I like their drivers.
I'm just trying to figure out the graphs In the article. Is it just me or with no key do they not make sense?
Makes sense to me. The graphs show performance relative to another GPU as a percentage. They use a particular GPU as a base which shows as 100% on the graph, then display the other GPU's performance as a percentage increase/decrease relative to the base GPU. For example, lets say the AMD 7580 managed 50FPS in Battlefield 3 (just a guess) in the first graph, this is shown as 100%. Now the 660GTX managed 120% performance in relation to the original result, that would mean a 20% increase in FPS, which would be an extra 10FPS.
Makes sense thanks. Just not a very efficient way to show it IMO.
