It was nice to see the results that you could achieve with overclocking though. Headroom is always good to have.

I'm still unconvinced by the benefits of the whole Cuda/Physx stuff. Certainly unbalances the Vantage-Mark though, which I'm sure is exactly what Nvidia wanted.
Considering they are both at the same price point, 4fps in crysis is quite a lot, that could be 10% of your frame rate, possibly more.

Even so, on a level playing field with both cards overclocked, the 260 came out on top, and thats what the article was aimed at..

Perhaps I wasn't clear. It's a common problem I have. Either that or I've misread your reply which is equally common.

I was trying to suggest that the only tests the 4870 came out on top over the standard 260 is the Crysis and Grid tests. Therefore to use battering as an adjective was a little over the top especially as the 260 won in the other tests even at stock. Once the 260 had been overclocked it totally blew the 4870 away, so that isn't strictly a level playing field, despite the fiscal equality.

By no means am I complaining, or anything of the sort. It's purely a lighthearted little something that made me smile. No defense necessary

If u think something needs asking about or debating about a review or opinion, u should feel free to bring it up.

Personally I wanna know what the fudge monitor w3bbo is using !

I think I get you, and agreed battering may not have been the best word, but it did beat it across all the tests...

Agreed. But in that case I would go down on the resolution instead of getting those 4 ekstra fps. If I was playing that is. 4fps is alot if you want to admire pixelart

I tend to drop the AA in preference to res.

That is the best option indeed.
