Default Re: Poll: ASUS Mars Dual GTX285, where should it be ranked?

well, I am quite new about oc and hwbot but it doesn't seem to me that recently have been so many polls about those arguments

About GTX 295 I no check so much and long (just first 20 positions of legacy 3d), but I see only one Mars benched...... IMO no one in 10 years had noticed that mars is different to GTX 295 (apart another italian user that wrote about this here der8auer`s 3DMark2001 SE score: 182593 marks with a GeForce GTX 285 x2 11 months ago )

if I have to assume that a MARS is a GTX 295 well, life goes on, no war on it... but IMO timeframe is not the key

hope my english isn't so bad

I knew i should of made that question more clear! Didn't think it would be long before someone pulled it up what i meant was, the basic specs of the card should be pretty much equivelant, ROPS, shaders, bus width etc. End of the day the Asus site says its a dual 285 and the 295gtx is not that. TBH not fussed where it goes, pretty sure it will stay like it has done for the last 10 years or so.

End of the day you put the card on your rig, power it on and device ID and driver recognition aka Nvidia as well as GPUZ tell you it is a GTX 295. So what is more valid? There will be a decision soon, but one way or the other it is wrong anyway

The same thing goes for the 260's, but because they really aren't the same models despite having the same name, a new category was made when the 216sp edition was released.

So what? The fact you can cheat proves the normal recognition to be wrong? I can do this on practically each x1 ati card and noone bothers. It only shows you run out of arguments

P.S. Yes, Knut, it was made when the 216 was released, and not 10 years later after people bought Mars relying on the ranking at 295 - good you get my point, there is hope

Nah, let me just make my own brand and release some unique cards.
BestVGA GTX 260 Unicorn RGB, 32 % faster than generic GTX 260. Limited edition, only 10 "manufactured".

I certainly get your point. There was once a decision regarding UCBench as well, that setting a higher thread count was OK. Years later, BOOM, not OK. This affected many more users than the relatively few who purchased Mars for benching purposes - the fact that it shouldn't have been allowed in the first place didn't matter. That was actually even worse, as allowing the thread count to be altered was a decision based on a discussion in the crew section - I do not think anyone took notice of this problem with the Mars back then.

I must admit I thought the shader count was different, which is not the case, but having different bus widths has usually been enough to add different categories (many low end GPUs are split that way, and I guess some of us remember the 192bit and 256bit versions of GTX460, which both have the same # of shaders and are split into different categories here)
