It's still skewed!
So at the first glance its majorly skewed, at a second glance I still didn't have a clear idea of just how skewed the graph actually was. I think I had to spend along the lines of 15 minutes of mspaint copy pasting and then thinking before I actually realized what the graph is supposed to look like in full scale.
Ahhh, I don't want to be personal but... you don't need to waste your time like that.
Some people learn one way and want to stay like it forever. Full scale is good to show absolute values. Point of this one was to show how one card is performing compared to other. Think like in full scale you have 0 for beginning, in this one performance of 2900 XT is used as zero. Just try. Suddenly everything will be simple and nice.
