The Coming Shift In Benchmarks And What It Means To Your Gaming Experience

I want all of you to take a moment to share your thoughts with us on this subject. Kyle has weighed in with our stance on the current state of benchmarks and what impact, if any, they have on your gaming experience. This is something that could have a dramatic impact on the way reviews in the industry are done and I'm sure you guys will want to voice your opinion on the matter.

It is sad to think that we NEED benchmark numbers to write video card and game performance reviews. While I understand that video card reviews with zero framerate data is something far left of where the industry is at now, it is interesting to see video card reviewers basically tell us that they cannot do their jobs without these tools. Framerate is not the gaming experience.
