best review of the card yet if you ask me, good job ccokeman!


You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

Does Frank have a copy of Battlefield 4? Curious about seeing how Mantle may affect its performance, as it's being patched in next month.

Ya I told Frank not to use it yet. BF4 has so many bugs I was waiting for a patch or two to come out before we bring it in. I don't want him to have to retest over and over again before the first patch or two are launched.

 

But no testing will be done on BF4 until at least after the first patch is launched which is supposed to be later this month.

So long as he can get some numbers with and without Mantle, I'll be happy.
