AMD vs. NVIDIA - Are they even playing the same game?
In the GPU world there are many flavors, despite the
perception that you either get AMD or NVIDIA. There is Matrox, WildCat/3D Labs,
S3, VIA and a few more. But in the end what you hear the most about are NVIDIA
and AMD. These two companies are compared back and forth in a game of favorites
that would make a selfish 4 year old proud. Still, can you really compare them
in equal terms?
On the surface you can. After all, you are measuring the number of frames
per second the GPU (attached to a specific build of materials) can render. The
magic number you are looking for is between 28 and 32 frames per second. This
is the number of frames per second that will “fool” the human eye into thinking
you are seeing full, fluid motion. @ TweakTown
