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.
When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one,
an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.
