This is the most ridiculus and biased graphics card review I have ever seen and yet it can receive some positive feedback. X2 4850 beats the factory overclocked GTX 285 (with zero additional overclocking headroom as already mentioned in the review) in the majority of games, but the reviewer tries to draw attention away from frame rates and talks about noise and power draw. It's silly! Why make the all those game tests then?
Just check yourself:
Call of duty: world at war; "GTX 285 SSC overtakes the dual-chip card from ATI and leaves it behind at 2560x1600, delivering a playable frame rate." This is not correct, because GTX 285 SSC delivers a minimum frame rate of 24 and it can not be considered playable, while X2 4850 min fps is 30. At 1900X1200 resolution the situation is even worse for GTX 285 SSC, min fps are in favor of X2 4850: 48 vs 26, Yes, unbeleivable that they are still picking GTX 285 SSC over X2 4850.
And no mention of the price difference.
GTX 285 SSC:410$ HD 4850 X2:290$
Now that's a huge difference, no wonder why they don't mention the price.
I can write two full pages to describe how this review sucks, but I don't want to waste my time. Apparently the dudes who made this review did not bother to read it once.
By the way I own a 8800GTS 512MB and I have nothing against Nvidia. I just hate biased liars who try to distort facts.
