Up for review today is the ASUS Radeon HD 7850 1GB DirectCU graphics card. This "Windows 8 Ready" AMD Radeon graphics card is being benchmarked under Ubuntu Linux and compared to an assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards.
I did some initial tests with TF2 but without PTS. The problem i see is that you need overrides for all quality settings otherwise it is not compareable across other systems. As you can parse a log file it should be possible to integrate TF2 into pts. It is just not that much fun as the load times are really long.
Something is seriously wrong the nVidia 460 / 550Ti results.
Last time I checked, my aging 470GTX ran the Heaven benchmark (w/o PTS) at ~30fps at 2560x1440... far, far from 4fps under 1280x1024.
Granted, my Xeon workstation has more CPU power than the test-bed machine, but 4FPS!??!?!
