Submission + - A deeper look at high-end graphics performance (

crookedvulture writes: Although Slashdot has already covered the launch of AMD's Radeon HD 7970 graphics card, those early reviews relied on frames-per-second figures that can mask stuttering and other interruptions to smooth gameplay. To get a sense of what it's really like to play games on a given card, one must take a deeper look at frame times. The Tech Report does just that in this review of the Radeon HD 7970, which offers new insight into how contemporary high-end graphics cards really compare when playing the latest games. The 7970 still reigns supreme, but its victory isn't always as triumphant as mere FPS averages would have you believe.
