nVidia GeForce GTX 260 - Test Setup

Once again, I'm ignoring GPGPU performance for the time being and I'm going to concentrate on what is still most important - gaming! When more GPU accelerated software becomes available we'll come back to take another look at this hardware.

All our testing uses a variety of manual run throughs and automated timedemos but regardless of which test method is used we run through multiple times and ensure results are consistent. The average of our consistent runs is then reported to you. The test setup is as follows:
