Default NVIDIA or ATI? SEE RESULTS!

Quote:
In late August 2008, PC Pitstop added a battery of 3D video tests to its free on line OverDrive scan. (Click to see the PC Pitstop 3D video test roll out announcement). The Overdrive 3D video tests consists of a suite of tests covering 6 areas of performance: Transform, Lighting, Multi Texturing, Blending, Vertex Shader and Bump Mapping. OverDrive consolidates the results into a single 3D performance score.


OverDrive's All new 3D test results are fully integrated into our World Rankings this month. Scan again for fresh standings.
We thought it would be interesting to see what graphics cards were surfacing as the top 3D video performers based on the test results captured during the first month since its roll out.

On the desktop side, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 scored highest with an approximately 15% advantage over the second place ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series graphics controller. NVIDIA and ATI alternated for the top 4 average scores, at which point it became all NVIDIA to finish out the remaining 6 spots in the top 10 results.

Portables came in with an NVIDIA sweep for the top ten average scores. The NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTX edged out second place NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS by less than a 2% average test score margin.

Wow, those tests must be way off..... There is no way the GTX 260 beats the HD 4870X2, and the HD 4850/4870 aren't on the list at all, just some "ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series" entry above GTX 260. The 9800GTX is listed twice, with the 9800GTX+ listed above both of those.... It seems very jumbled and the results are very misleading.

Nvidia cards may do better at some of those 6 test categories, but overall gaming performance tests show much different results, which is what matters.

Haha everyone who left comments at the site said the same thing. And I don't even see anything from ATI in the Portable gpu test. It's inaccurate adn incomplete at best and biased towards Nvidia at the worst.

I checked the comments on that page, and it appears the developers of the test failed to include multi-gpu support. So basically the 4870X2 was operating at sub par of nearly half it's potential. I expect the 3870X2 would be on that list too.
