Performance ratings

Calculations are based on gaming test results and 3DMark06 test results. The calculation method is described here.

Ratings are divided into two groups: General and Gaming. The former includes all test results while the latter includes only test results obtained in actual games. Disbelieving synthetic tests, many think the second group is of higher importance.
