    AMD vs. NVIDIA - Are they even playing the same game?

    In the GPU world there are many flavors, despite the perception that you either get AMD or NVIDIA. There is Matrox, WildCat/3D Labs, S3, VIA and a few more. But in the end what you hear the most about are NVIDIA and AMD. These two companies are compared back and forth in a game of favorites that would make a selfish 4 year old proud. Still, can you really compare them in equal terms?

    On the surface you can. After all, you are measuring the number of frames per second the GPU (attached to a specific build of materials) can render. The magic number you are looking for is between 28 and 32 frames per second. This is the number of frames per second that will �fool� the human eye into thinking you are seeing full, fluid motion.
