with nvidia they had the [series no.] [performance indicator] followed usually by 00 or [edition number] followed by letters to indicate what they are good for.
then they reached 9 on series no. and had to start over .... introducing the GTX series. where "GTX [series no] [performance indicator] followed usualy by a Zero or an edition number, like the previous.
when Nvidia was in the 7/8/9 series it was easy to see which models going to be better
ATI is now better and easy to see,
eg 3/4/5 series.
HD 5850 better than> 4850 better than> 3850
and 5870 would be better than> 5850 << BUT a 6850 would be better than BOTH even tho being a 50 on the end, cos its a higher model range
Simple really, and this is without even taking a look at the charts... its logical
Then theres Nvidia,GT250 better than not jus GT 340(if there is one), BUT BETTER THAN GT 440 ***?
why do NVIDIA HAVE TO BE TWATS lol?
