"The section that is the most important on all other graphics card review but not that important on this one."

The section that is the most important on all other graphics card review but not that important on this one. The main reason is that the SYNERGY II is designed for real-world acceleration and until I can own some $700 product there is no way for me to test that. I performed the customary Quake 2 and 3D Mark Max99 Pro tests because they say you are also supposed to be play some decent games on this card. I also tested half-life figuring that it was a “decent” game. So all games were tested with sound disabled except for Quake2 where it was set to max. performance. All tests were run 3 times to ensure accuracy. V-sync was left enable because after-all this is supposed to be “real world.”
