not to change the subject or anything. This is an interesting read.
(it should be like having overkill ram in u'r pc, it gives more headroom for oc)
its not necessary a bad thing to have a bottleneck u always get a bottleneck somewhere when u build a system but calling it a bottleneck is like seing the glass half empty (gddr5 is future proof)
i also read somewhere that only the 4870x2 will have the 512bit bus all the other card's will have the 256bit (but as all else it's just rumors) tho thy claim it was a leak from ati (tg daily i think it was)
i am weary exited about thees cards, as i always is about new ati cards
the shader clock and core clock difference is weary intriguing reminds me of what amd does, intel copy's and do better.
and i know the best bang for the buck will always be ati ^^ (sorry i'm ati fan, because pc has more uses then gaming, had i been a hardcore gaming dude i'd definitely go nvidia)Edited by SpaceCat - 5/13/08 at 10:05pm
