Great test but..

What OS was used? XP sp2, vista ult.?
Vista is the new shit shipped with most new pc's.

Isn't it time to start to show what super performance it will give you in your brand new expensive pc?
Or why we all want to upgrade...

Thank you for your interest!

Yes, the OS used is Windows XP SP2.

Good point. We are currently considering migrating on Vista.
Although there are a number of upcoming articles still featuring tests in Windows XP.

Please be patient and stay tuned.

No because Vista users are the minority. It would be foolish for a review site to cater to the minority. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/demographics

Any ideas why 7950GT 256MB has faster framerates than the 320MB 8800GTS in a lot of benchmarks according to your website? (Surely, the 7950GT 256MB has less memory and is about half the GPU speed so it should be much slower. But in games like FEAR Extraction point, the 7950GT is much faster in all resolutions. why is this the case? I highly doubt most games would be so memory dependant that it impacts the 320MB 8800GTS so much. (While the 256MB 7950GT isn't impacted in most games compared to the 512Mb version)

Please check this thread also for some more details. =)

Idiot. Where do you see a 7950GT in this review? Perhaps you're reffering to 7950 GX2 which in fact is faster than the 8800 series in a lot of cases. FOOL!
