We evaluate what the card being evaluated can supply us in terms of a playable gaming experience while supplying the best culmination of resolution and "eye candy" graphical settings. We focus on quality and immersion of the gameplay experience rather than how many frames per second the card can get in a canned benchmark or prerecorded timedemo situation that often do not represent real gameplay like you would experience at home. Then we will follow with apples-to-apples testing in with minimum, maximum, and average framerates.
We are using the latest drivers at the time of testing. This would be the official GeForce 411.63 WHQL driver. (Editor's note: A new driver was released this morning, but we do not expect it to have any impact on the games being used here in terms of IQ or performance.)
