Initial Screenshot Comparisons Complete

I have added a new Gaming Visual Quality comparison section to the guide, (accessible from the contents frame on the left.)  There are Quake2 (OpenGL) and Incoming (Direct3D) screenshots for several chipsets, with more to come soon!

Ratings Updates

There have been several changes in the ratings.  MOP-Bench has also been upgraded to version 2.0 (to take into account the new evaluation and selection criteria data.)   Here's the skinny on the most important changes in the ratings, and the guide in general:

First, a word of thanks!

First of all, thanks for being patient while I settled back into "real life" following the wedding.  Thanks to all of you who have sent me good luck wishes...it worked.  The wedding day was absolutely perfect.  No glitches, great weather, a beautiful bride...I couldn't have asked for more.  The honeymoon cruise was a blast as well...and no, I wasn't on the cruise ship that caught fire! :)

Gone Again!

No, I'm not getting married again, but I do have a business trip that is going to take me to San Jose, CA for a week.  You should all have enough to chew on for a while, though! :)  I'll be back in town on Sunday, August 9.  See you then!

Gettin' Hitched!!

Some of you may know that TOMORROW is the big day.  I marry the girl of my dreams at 10:15 AM.   I hope you understand now why updates have been infrequent the past month, and I haven't responded to e-mail for the last week...there have been many details to cover, out of town guests to entertain, etc.  All the plans are finally coming together, and the weather is suppossed to be fantastic for the outdoor ceremony tomorrow.  (Clear, dry, and in the low 80's...not bad for a mid July day in New Jersey!)  Wish us luck!

Rating Update Status

Nevertheless, I have been testing a varitey of accelerators over the past month, I just haven't had time to do the formal updating of the guide (with the wedding and all).   However, here's the skinny:

That's it for now...I return from vacation on July 20th.  You'll hear from me soon after!
