    That CPU gaming performance article by The Tech Report is quite interesting. I have to wonder though if they're over-thinking their new testing procedures regarding frame latencies. They may be able to measure those latencies, but you're talking milliseconds of a single refreshed frame which is indiscernible to the human eye, especially when you're talking 50+ FPS. Regardless, the Intel processors sure stomp the crap out of the AMD ones in their results.

    Frame latency is discernible to some people. 50ms is a twentieth of a second (0.05 seconds) yet motion pictures are perceived as fluid at 24fps (0.04 sec/frame) and first-person gaming at 60 fps (0.02 sec/frame). To some people lagging/microstutter is observable or an irritant, to others- not so much.

    The demise of nintendo power is frustrating, as I have memories of that magazine when I was a kid. What's more frustrating is nintendo not making any games I really want to play anymore.

    Actually the human brain processes what you see at about 30 fps. Unless some game lags for 5+ frames at 60 fps it will not be noticed. You can get headaches, however, from frames even if they are moving faster than the brain processes them.
     
  6. about 5+ frames**
