They don't say, unfortunately. But, it's pretty clear pattern.
Look at the average FPS on that review to gauge it a bit better what the overall performance is. But, unequivocally, Windows 8.1 has significant benefits.
Well, I got bored and compiled the data from Hardware Pal's similar review, seen here. I appreciate Hard|OCP's testing, but they missed a big point by leaving out the CPU. If you play on any settings that really stress out your CPU, Windows 8.1 has ENORMOUS benefits for Battlefield 4...
Regarding Kepler and DX11.1, NVIDIA had this to say:
So, it has DX11.1 for basically any purpose Hard|OCP is concerned about--I think.
So, I'm curious why you guys chose a pure GPU test....A Frostbite 3 developer stated this on Reddit:
So, it also has CPU benefits. Another site...
Oh, right! I remember those cards. You plugged them into a PCI-E slot and they had a couple DDR slots for RAM. With DDR3 prices this low, you'd think that would be moving somewhere.
I think it was RAM density that slowed them down, though. You only get 4 DDR slots on a card; filling that with...

"This question isn't to buy parts or anything (haha); this is just a general question on the state of technology..."
Well, I thought the same thing. I looked up some RAM disks, however, and they were on-par or only slightly faster than SSDs. But, your point is...
It used to be the hard drive, but with the advent of SSDs, what is now the slowest part of the computer?
I mean, for regular computing (what 95% of the world does with its computers: cue in Office, Firefox, watching a movie), what's holding them back? Why are instant-on computers still far...
I add another. :) I mean, three out of the five games you tested were playable at 2560x1600; Crysis and Far Cry 2 the only exceptions. And even then FC2 was at 1920x1200 with 4XAA and the highest in-game settings.
I can see an overvolt being likely; even with its new cooler, the temperatures were within a few degrees from the stock cooler. It's good that it's quiet, though.

Not a bad card. I wish you guys might throw in a GTX 285 in there. I've had conflicting information whether the...
