Basically, this is telling me that my old 1950 XT is better than my 2600 XT?

And my 3650 is even less performing than both of them.

Yes because the 2600xt is the equivalent of a 3670

No it's right. Its the same thing as saying an nvidia 9600 < 8800. because it is lol

Don't mock the 8800. Its even faster than the 4890! :)

Nah, Tom's Hardware is doing it wrong

4890 - 42.5
8800GT - 43.6
9600GT - 41
4870 - 38.1
3870 - 28.3
4850 - 24.8
3850 - 23.5
4870x2 - 20.2

Even with nVidia obviously paying them, you'd think they'd at least make the benchmarks slightly believable. A 9600GT beating a 4870, let alone the x2 version? Yeah effing right... That's ignoring the sheer idiocy of claiming that a 3850 will outperform a 4870x2.

I've always been under the impression Tom's Hardware was super believable.

bah, its clearly a type-o. Tom's is a reliable site, but they've recently revamped their UI and charts, clearly still have some mistakes. If you look at any of their reviews they dont make those mistakes.

+1, their setups may not be the best... but their numbers are solid. This is clearly a mistake on the labels not matching the FPS results.

You could have a look at the VGA Charts (http://www.guru3d.com/category/vga_charts/) at Guru3D as well.

That looks better, I just wish they had older/lower-end cards listed.
