You're making a positive judgement about a card that hasn't been reviewed yet, and then you imply I'm the one who's being simplistic in my thinking... :wanker: Go back and look at the post I was quoting, and then consider my comment in context. AMD over the last few generations, has only been able to offer similar performance for a little less money. They have not managed to offer a card with significantly greater performance-per-dollar when compared against products of the same class from Nvidia. A big part of that seems to be that they're always playing catch-up to the standard that Nvidia has already set, and Nvidia always seems ready to counter within weeks. Based on that, I think it would be unreasonable for anyone to expect AMD is going to have a product that is capable of significantly out-performing Nvidia's. It seems much more likely they will have cards that offer similar levels of performance at lower prices, and Nvidia will respond by dropping price on their existing line. We're talking about GPUs. Their market value is measured largely in benchmarks. Any review of a GPU is ultimately there to offer context and additional information, but the numbers tell most of the story. Heat, power draw, price, relative performance, overclockability, and noise - those are the standards by which we judge gaming GPUs. And relative performance is the most important of those factors. Frame rates largely determine how much the manufacturer can charge for their card. How many games do you have that will run on a modern generation AMD card, but not on a modern generation Nvidia card? I don't know a single person who looks only at frame rate charts, nor did I suggest anyone should. But frame rate charts are certainly one of the most important factors when considering buying a card. Would you make a purchasing decision without looking at frame rate benchmarks? I read just fine, and the reviews tell the same story consistently for the last few years - AMD at their best manages to offer cards that are close to the performance of Nvidia's, often for a little bit cheaper price. Nvidia then responds by adjusting price, or releasing an additional product that nullifies any price-to-performance advantage AMD might have had. We saw this with the 290x, we saw it with the Fury and Fury X, and again with the RX 480.
