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.

"typically" yes. The G92 has better compression for high res AA. Specially with 4xAA and 16xCSAA. Color compression is purely a bandwith thing. So its more efficient with less. When you say 1 Gigabyte isnt doing any better. What tests and settings are you describing. If you dont have the memory it will be immediately noticable. If you do then both cards would perform the same.
