Default Re: The right price for the GTX200 family...

Of course I knew you were talking about ATI. People throw big enough fits when I even mention the names because I am affiliated with NVidia. I did my damned hardest to stay focused on Nvidia hardware. Even so. ATI Hardware isnt magic. Memory management is just that. Memory management. ATI may very well manage memory better. As I said though. You eventually have to pass memory to the system bus. Believe it or not. The data I use to formulate AA storage capacity is based off what ATI employees posted and what Nvidia has told me.

Its a simple mathematical formula.

Height * Width * Sample *(front buffer,+ back buffer,+ Zbuffer, + AA backbuffer + AA Zbuffer)). It really is simple math. You may be handle your PCIE swapping differently. But your still dealing with the PCIE bus when you run out of memory.
