    Framerates were captured using the included benchmarking software or captured game data.  The settings used for each test will be listed on the individual benchmarking page with the average framerate recorded in the charts.  When possible only the GPU scores are recorded giving the best opportunity for repeatable results.

    The purpose of our benchmark suite is to provide the readers with a comparative analysis of video card performance based on a common set of variables.  This may not always reflect a real "in-game" experience or framerates, since those are almost impossible to replicate, but instead is designed to provide an accurate scale of performance of one video card to another given their default setting.
