Post Re: NVIDIA says it will win back performance leadership this year

At B3D, you can read that the ROPs used in the nVidia cards are not in the same league of bandwidth efficiency as ATi's. Nvidia needs 32, while ATi can use 16. If the GT200b goes with a GDDR5 256bit bus and only 16 ROPs, the card will run much slower, in special with AA & high res. They need to keep all the ROPs & increase the bandwidth, or design a more bandwidth efficient ROP unit.
