Not that my opinion matters but i'd say while FPS lies, true, it's only because it's a very slow way of recording what you see. Your eye see's a lot more than every second and lot more than 30/60 FPS or whatever the crazed people say your eye is limited to. It just doesn't work in a manner of "FPS", analog, not digital. Therefore you need a much finer grain of measurement to get any statistical data worth noting. So much happens in that second, if 80% of that second is 60FPS you may never see the number change but you will CERTAINLY notice that 20% it's not, especially if by a large margin as you eye is PARTICULARLY sensitive to major changes in fluidity at ANY FPS. As such those FCAT tests are borderline invaluable right now, but they are also not the only invaluable information. How did the drivers make your system feel, behave? did it break stuff you regularly used? did features works seamlessly, etc. How is the hardware BUILT, fan noise etc are all things that must also be represented and they are a important part of a product as well. And quite a lot of these things can only be done "by hand" from the reviewer you are trusting. As always it's their opinion, but it's a educated and well thought out opinion you would hope, and thus you can weight their words with your POV. I guess my bottom line is FCAT or whatever the finest degree of measurement can show you -EXACTLY- what the performance is, but there is more to GPU's anymore than just performance. All the speed in the world matters not if it crashes half your programs, none of the features work your machine takes ten minutes to load and it's loud as fuck. all of these things are important too. Guess that's all I got to say, and for the record, professional FPS player here, high FPS is mandatory for me, but my machine can't sound like a dust blower and just has to work or I can't hear footsteps with my open ear headphones or crashing mid match is not acceptable to me or my team mates. I rely on full body reviews in this manner and sadly I pretty much can't get exactly what -I- look for, in any one place. But that's just my perspective.
