Hi
i know PCI-E doesnt provide any performance increase vs AGP cards

but i remember someone saying the current PCI-E versions of the 6800s will be slower than the AGP version by 5-10% because of the bridge chip

has this been confirmed?

no....not on any of the benches i have seen. Check the archives of the news on the front page for PCI E card reviews.

What Muya said.

Depending on the games, I've only seen drops of half a fps in PCIe and its most likely the platform and not the video card. Also, in a couple of intensive games, I remember seeing slight increases.
