On site Comments

It has come to my attention, the comments plugin isn't functioning. A fix is due over the weekend, along with more content.

No particular reason for absense of updates, other than social life and being engrossed in a strategy game.

Keep an eye on twitter and other social media sites, for the updates.

A quick overview of frame rates. Tested on a system with 4GB Ram, Athlon II 240 clocked at 3.5GHZ.

Considering the CPU is fairly weak, the framerates are impressive at full 1080p.

GTA IV - badly coded game, not optimised at all. All settings on high. View distance set to 40. Traffic set to 35. While on foot, average of 35fps. While driving, average of 25fps.

But can it run Crysis? Yes! Yes it can. Everything set to very high, AA at x4. Average of 43 fps.

Unfortunately I became absorbed in games, so haven't tested other games yet.

I can confidently recommend this card as a 1080p card that will not disappoint. Well worth the money.

VGM is Quiet?

A brief break from staring at code, has allowed more game and social time. As well as putting lipstick on a bird.

Reviews have been done, and are just waiting to be added to the web code.

So not to overwhelm the big G, the content will be added over the next few days.

Also, been looking into streaming gameplay, which will become a regular thing sometime in the near future.

Letsplay's and video reviews are also in the pipeline.
