AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition vs. Nvidia GeForce GTX 680: frametimes review - PCSTATS.com AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition vs. Nvidia GeForce GTX 680: frametimes review
Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 9:01AM | Filed under: Video Cards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Last week we published an article about a new way of testing graphics card performance in video games. Traditionally, graphics cards performance has been expressed in frames per second. The assumption has always been, the more fps your graphics card is capable of, the better video games will perform. But is it really that simple? Not quite so, it turns out. To really determine how a graphics card handles a video game, the average fps is not an adequate measure of performance, and you need more detail. Frametime tests provide exactly that. Today we are publishing the results of our first test, comparing the AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680. Based on the average frames per second we would choose AMD, but based on frametimes we would go with Nvidia instead.
