Thread: Sapphire PURE 790GX




  1. #1

    Default Sapphire PURE 790GX

    I noticed in the article that a nVidia 9800 GX2 was used for the test system. I am wondering how this article can be about a Dragon system if you aren't using an ATI 4xxx GPU? Although it is never specifically addressed as being about a Dragon system.. however, the previous artical which is referenced AMD Phenom II Arrives – 45nm Deneb and Dragon Platform is about a Dragon platform and it too uses the Gigabyte 9800 GX2. If you are going to analyze a Dragon, shouldn't it BE a Dragon?

    In order to get apples to apples test results a single video card must be used to test test all of the products for a catagory for a certain amount of time. If say, a 4870X2 card was used for testing one and the 9800X2 was used to test the other the results wouldn't be controlled.

    That's kind of beside the point, isn't it. I am saying that it can't be a Dragon Platform test if it isn't testing a Dragon Platform. Although, speaking of apples, it would be interesting to see a high-end Dragon tested...
