Would be nice if we can compare more than 2 cards, maybe up to 5 at once.
And there are cards on that list that's not even out yet, like the HD8670 and HD8870.

Doesn't have GTX 580, in fact doesn't have any 580...Seriously?

Hey Vano - thanks for checking us out. We don't collect data yet for some older cards, but based on the feedback we're getting, we're going to look into adding the GTX 580 and other cards to our database.

I like the site in general (pretty much the same layout as CPUBoss) but they're missing a good amount of data, and don't deal with the missing data well.

If they don't have the resources to fill in all the data, they need to implement an "insufficient data" result for the comparisons rather than making ridiculous calls like HD 7650>660Ti.

Agreed. I love the site overall but without the data it seems rather useless to open, even if it's for a testing of the waters. All this is doing is generating alot of negative feedback and could cause them to maybe reconsider staying open.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. I took a look and the source of the issue here is that, as a few of you have noted, we don't have a lot of data for the Radeon 7650, which makes the comparison not great. So even though we have tons of data for the 660 Ti (http://gpuboss.com/graphics-card/Nvidia-GeForce-GTX-660-Ti) our comparison other is limited. What i'm taking away from this is that we should be more explicit about NOT making a comparison when we lack too much data for 1 product. We try to do this with the N/A label in the conclusions screen but it would probably be better that we don't aware a winner in those limited cases, e.g. the "insufficient data" result mentioned above. We ask that you give us a chance to make tweaks and respond to feedback as it comes in, thanks!

Of course! I know you guys need to correct some stuff and that's fine. I just felt stalled seeing a great site open but with it not working correctly. I eagerly await the revisted site with all the info and tweaks done as it will be a KickAss site!

We really appreciate the launch coverage, thanks Paul and Maximum PC! We're really excited to go live and are still tweaking the site, so any suggestions for improvements (or bugs you encounter) are more than welcome.

Thanks for checking us out guys :)

Weaksauce site.
Just compared a 660ti and 7650 and the 7650 wins, but the only thing going for it is lower TDP. no benchmarks or any data to back it up with. I even ran the same comparison except a new GeForce Titan against the AMD Radeon 7650 and the 7650 wins. Then a Radeon 6930 vs Geforce Titan and the radeon wins yet again.. What the flying F-bomb?? I realize the site is new but come on, don't launch if you don't have data already in place to be useful!!
Maximum PC, I hope you take a second and better look at this site and hopefully not recommend it until they can fix it.

I agree, as of right now its not useful as a comparison tool. But if this site gets to the same functionality of cpuboss, then it will a neat tool to give to people just getting into building computers.

+9000. it's an awesome concept and would be the perfect compliment to CPUBoss for that reason. I just find it extremely strange not to be atleast 90% operational when opened to the public. just haivng card names and specs isn't good enough if comparing them doesn't work since that's what the site is about.

EhJude

Hey guys, thanks for the thoughts. I mentioned it above but it looks like the same issue here, where we have tons of data for one product (the 660 Ti: http://gpuboss.com/graphics-card/Nvidia-GeForce-GTX-660-Ti) but not the other (the 7650), leading to a not-so-great comparison. Although we do our best to show what data we do and do not have and how well GPUs perform along those lines in our breakdown, we could do a better job of making it explicit when there's insufficient data to make an adequate comparison, as is the case here. This is something we'll definitely be working on, we just ask for patience while we work to tweak the site after launch. Thanks again for taking the time to check us out and for voicing where we can make improvements, we're definitely listening.

Thanks a bunch for fixing some of the lopsided comparisons from the 19th, keep up the great work!

Keep up the good work. I definitely like the user interface. I'm sure you will add more benchmark scores and cards over time, so when it's time for me to get a new GPU (or CPU), I'll take a look at this site. And I'm hoping you will add some SLI/CrossFire scores as well.

avatar

EhJude

Thanks for the support :) Good feedback, I'll look into whether we can add Crossfire and SLI graphics cards to the DB in the future.

Nice site. I wish they had Crossfire or SLI comparisons. Or maybe they do but I don't see where they are.

avatar

EhJude

Thanks for checking us out, we don't yet have Crossfire or SLI comparisons but we can look into adding data for this in the future.

I don't like it.
