If you cater to Linux gamers, shouldn't you care about what gamers care about?Quote:
Phoronix Media is the largest Internet media company devoted to enriching the Linux hardware experience and catering its content to Linux gamers and computer enthusiasts.
On the presentation, like others said, it's the exact same info, just presented differently. I really don't care if the min/max numbers were also in table form, because they alone are not that useful: what if it was a single anomalous spike? In the graph you can see how often the spikes appear.
Seriously, lets not get to this again. Their numbers are completely meaningless, of zero value - you can't expect anything from reading those.
The folks from HardOCP know that the numbers are meaningless, but they include them anyway because people keep asking for them.
The only thing that matters for a [H] review is the gameplay experience, something which can only be poorly expressed in terms of fps numbers.
The fact is that the reason they -ARE- meaningful is because they run at the best playable configuration with information on the hardware and setup that was used to achieve that configuration. That's extremely useful to know.
What's not meaningful is a game benchmark that runs at 3 frames or 300 frames. Those have no value. Nobody is going to use that configuration to play that game on that hardware. Tell me where is the value in benchmarking a game using settings that nobody is going to use.
