right back to you: You know, you can stop mentioning no CUDA and PHYSX on all AMD graphics cards reviews

getting tired of seeing the same comments every time in reviews
Then perhaps you should stop putting no Cuda/PhysX support? i love your reviews i think they are the BEST in the whole internet, but come on... that is not a CON... you want cuda you get a nVidia, simple as that... dont take this personally but the others are RIGHT, maybe next review dont use physx/cuda as a con on AMD cards.

Guys lay it off a bit...Every time a new high end card from either Nvidia or Ati rolls along, it comes with a "Review guide" the size of a small novel. It can include anything from "use only our latest alpha-beta super driver" to "remember to review this game using these settings". I wouldn't be surprised if "remember to mention CUDA/Physx" was in that list with big bold letters.

If you don't comply with it, you get cut off. If you get cut off not only is it harder to get your hands on the new tech, you also don't get access to the promotional events or get the interviews and the insights on the next big thing. You're shun off and there's nothing you can do about it because it's a cut-throat world out there.

Now, not only is W1z doing these reviews in his leisure time, but he's doing a bang of a job. I'm not saying you shouldn't criticize because good feedback is always a nice thing - but come on: keep it constrictive.

All i see is: "Whine, whine; stop dissing my lovely brand! Ati/Nvidia are so awesome. I don't care if product xwz doesn't support uvt - it still gives me a woody!"

If we want to tell W1z on what he "should/shouldn't have" then why not go to his wishlist... As you can see on the "wishlist" he's going to reamp his benches... If you want to go anal on it.. Read a few reviews.. Read his last March/April review on which it got people Fueling.. Now, what site goes threw all those benches, goes threw all those cards, just to review one card?

i dont care about reviewer guides or similar bs .. which means that in addition to you guys, some manufacturers hate me too. check tpu how many samples i got directly from nvidia, also check the sample count from amd.

nvidia hasn't been doing much cuda/physx brainwash lately. i really think it is a point that should be mentioned in the reviews. as soon as we see decent opencl apps (there are none, i checked today, was hoping to find something for the new vga reviews) become as competitive as cuda that point will be gone. If physx loses importance for the gamers (it's on the best way to do that) then i won't mention it anymore either.

At the end of the day is your site, so you do what you think is best.

As for whining no one is whining, i own 5 nVidia GPUs while i only own 2 AMD/ATi GPUs, but i do think AMD are not meant to have PhysX or CUDA, so this is why think this should not be considered a CON.

The reviews are meant for people that are looking to buy a card, and are comparing cards from both. So it is proper to include a feature that one has and the other lacks. It doesn't matter that AMD isn't bothering to developer a technology to compete with it, it is still something that someone buying this card would be missing out on, so it should be mentioned.

......and that's why W1z came up with GPUz as a catch 22. Hate W1z and get your stuff black marked on GPUz! :slap:

Haters :respect: :pimp: W1z

Oooooohhh snap! :D

Well for someone with an older dual Core OEM box with a good 300W PSU, to plug-and-play at what is a GTS250 512Mb level is pretty dang nice. Sure you won't get newer Dx11 titles, but perf/power leader and play most previous gen titles for nothing more that a $80 card final street price is good.

As to the whole "Not powerful enough for full HD resolutions" sure a miss-opportunity, but not a CON ... Because is there an Nvidia card that’s in the market, half-height and this low of power that can pull that off? I don't see a GT430 having that ability, does that newly released GT520 (wasn't mentioned) , or even the GT440 (oddly completely missing even though you did that one 2-1/2 months ago). While a GTS 450 might, it’s still not a card that most consider for actual HTPC duty. Face it, it’s just an attribute/feature that’s not yet a reality for cards at this level.

As to Cuda/PhysX: Cuda is a useful feature even at the lowest price point, but why even ding the AMD product on PhysX when heck even a GTS450 and below will have you compromising setting and resolutions just to get playable FpS. To me saying Nvidia offers PhysX at this level is a misnomer, and Nvidia should get the "CON" when specifications indicate it can do it, but not with any adeptness.

Wiz does good… just keep it real.

A review of a pair of these in Crossfire would be nice to see. Would two of these be faster than a HD6870?
