Nice read =)

Any particular reason for the exclusion of cost-per-frame?

Its not been done on a few of the recent articles.. It works best with cards which are far apart in cost, so you can compare them on a even playing field, but since these cards are so close it would take up a lot of graph space for not a lot of useful information..

If there are any in particular you would like to know I can rustle up a graph.

I think this is exactly where the cost per frame comes into play. The choice between a midrange and highend card based on price isn't hard anyway, but here it's starting to be tough.

Nice review btw :')

Thanks dude.. what im trying to say is, the cards are ££ apart, people looking to buy 2 cards of that price point, aren't going to be put off by one costing £1.50 more or something silly, it will be solely down to performance.

I found it amusing that you open the article explaining the 4870 battered the 260 so you had to overclock it, then produced a ton of graphs that showed hardly a battering at all, even at stock. 4fps in Crysis and the difference between loads, and really loads, in Grid aren't exactly a watertight case for OC'ing the 260 lol. 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.

Great stuff.

That card definately has a grudge with the HIS 4870 IceQ.
