So ive been frequently referring to Passmark for any benchmarks id like to know recently and they just posted a score for the 290R.
From that i would gather the overall graphic performance of the GTX780 is actually the better then the 290R, however we also have this SBS comparison that would suggest otherwise:
Unfortunately Passmark doesn't go into details on what the card was tested at what settings, hardware, etc. From my understanding its more like a collective score then a set test so it gives you the average over a diverse group. The score is bound to change over time.
Is passmark just not a reliable source for putting out their benchmarks like this or is there some weight to what they do? Is there a better source you would recommend?
The main reason i ask this is because i have been waiting for the new cards to all come out. Now that they are here i'm looking to get one and i just don't want to be mislead.
