Again, stop the CAPS.


Which is faster, an 18 wheeler with 1800hp, or a Z06 with 505hp. My point is, is thats theres more to a card than just pipelines. Also the Nvidia uses about 2/3's the power, maybe even less than that.

How can a 3.0GHz P4 be beaten by a 2.4GHz AMD Athlon?

Think of it like that.

EDIT: Intervention beat me to this type of explanation...

The HD2900XT does NOT have 320 shaders, it's got 64, the core is set up differently.

Stop typing like an idiot, please.
