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

Thank you so much, Chris. It's a lot more than I expected, and you explaiend it easy enough for me to understand. Let me confirm this, with regard to G80 vs G92.

So, the reason why G92 sometimes shows inconsistent performance vs G80 (seemingly memory related) is the size of frame buffer, rather than its bandwidth? Relatively speaking.

Thank you again.
