In August of last year, I lost my head while debating some doubtful results from your IL-2 tests. ( ) I remember it because I don't usually get carried away on online forums. Anyway, it seems your numbers are more reasonable now. What turned out to be the problem?

You should not compare results obtained on totally different platforms, drivers and/or versions of the benchmarks.

I'm in agreement with John - you guys are using the Catalyst 5.2 drivers when in fact there is a 5.3 driver avaliable. And do you think it's funny that in Chronicles of Riddick, that ALL Radeon cards lock in at 52 fps in ALL resolutions, including the higher ones?? Sounds like Catalyst 5.3 may have fixed that problem, but since you use 5.2, we won't ever know. Also, where's the S3 Gammachrome review?

The reviews are made not in one day and it takes some time to get review online. We test, then write reviews based on the tests of an array of boards. Which is why we are sometimes behind the drivers.

Ok, that's cool. Also, when can we expect to see the S3 Gammachrome video card review?

why do you say the x800xl is best bang for the buck when it isn't priced anywhere near 299$
