Do ultra and high graphics even matter?

650 ti is around 26% better.

And these benchmarks are at 1680x1050 which is around 25% more pixels then 1600x900.


No, it's way more powerful: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html

GeForce GTS 250
903

GeForce GTX 650 Ti
2,706

Nearly 300% better.

You can't compare stuff like they do on hwcompare as architecture changes. It's like saying a E6600 @ 3ghz = i3 4360 @ 3ghz. It's just not true, just because they're running at the same frequency and have the same number of cores doesn't mean the performance is going to be the same.

GTX 760 have a score of 4986, doesnt mean it is twice the 650ti.

760 GTX = 670 GTX which gets exactly 200% the framerate of the 650 ti, so it is indeed twice as powerful as the 650 ti.

We're just going around in circles now, and you're not correct in any way.

Sleepings Dogs must have some directx 11 specific effects that my gts250 didnt processed.

Thats the only reasonable explanation imo, because I always check the fps when tweaking settings and I am sure I didnt played it at sub 20fps.

And I am going sleep. its 3am I have to work tomorrow.

gn, but it's not just Sleeping Dogs. It's every game if you look at the benchmarks.

Ultra vs medium is like looking at a real object vs a drawing
Ultra vs medium is like looking at real environments vs closed place with one source of light.
Ultra vs medium is like looking with normal eyes vs looking with minus eyes without glasses or lenses.
Ultra vs medium is like looking at a master vs a peasant.

something wrong on his computer.

When I played sleepings dogs I already had the i5. 1600x900, texture pack and keep in the 45-50.

The first game that played at low 30's for me was just cause 2. That was the reason I upgrade to the 760.


You never even measured framerate, you're pulling these numbers straight from your ass. You aren't the first person to claim to own a GPU made by the hand of god that gets double the benchmark and you won't be the last to claim you no longer own it or are unwilling to set it up to prove your completely unrealistic claim.

I don't know what made you even think to waste your time, benchmarks are widely available and computers operate on precise specifications. It's not something with a bunch of wiggle room and wild variances in performance.


It's more annoying when people like that give out buying advice and steer people wrong because they somehow can't tell the difference between 15/20FPS and 50/60.
