Does a 5670 Take Advantage of its Entire GDDR5 Memory Bandwith?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As most of you already know most of the 5 series is equipped with very fast GDDR5 memory. Well I was wondering if a 1gb 5670 would take advantage of the entire 64gb/sec memory bandwith it comes with, and would there be a differance with OC'ed memory?. I ask this because the memory on my card doesnt overclock that high compared to other 5670's and I want to see if i'm missing out.

Well the 5670 cant be THAT bottlenecked by its memory as the much faster 4850 comes with 63.5GB/sec bandwith. And you have to be honest 64gb/sec is pretty good for a budget card, It was only 3 years ago that the 9500gt had 32gb/sec bandwith.
