quote RasterChiefOk so I admit that the settings we chose to use from day 1 were a little offbeat, but our thinking was that everyone else was already using the default settings, so what's the point of having 30 reviews from different sites, of the same card benched against pretty much the same cards on the same settings? Since you can replicate our settings pretty easily you can still do some cross referencing, and cross referencing is always dangerous since you have a different setup than us, so you always have to take all the factors into consideration. I guess in the future we will choose more industry standard settings so that straight comparisons are easier to make.Firstly, it is illogical to use the settings you are using. A default industrial standard setting should be used so cross-referencing is possible. Secondly, like all the nVIDIA cards, bar the FX5200, the are inferior to the ati equivalent. A 9600Pro will anhilate a 5600 Ultra in everything apart from extremmely high resolutions with 4AA and 16AF, where games are unplayable. Also, i think it is about time that the 3dmark 2001 was scrapped for 2003. No one is particularly bothered how there card will do in UT2003, they want to know the Half-Life 2 performance.
