Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 460/465/470/480" thread
If all this talk about PCIe3.0 was in response to my comment... I am wondering how the slot has anything to do with it. I had a 9800 GTX in the slot. A GTX280 also. Both were increasingly faster with regards to rendering AND getting data off the card for downstream porcessing. THEN, I stuck a 465 GTX in the same slot and both the render speed dropped to below what the 9800 could do. However, Heaven Bencmark indicated the card was performing well. So, I turned off the feature in my S/W that reads the data out of the card... and then the render speeds went well past the 280GTX!
So, I am surmizing that the driver for getting data off the card is poor, OR the hardware has been downgraded (the hardware for communicating via the PCI express).
I will also say that I tried this on 3 computers, all very similar... same effect.
So how will waiting for a new PCIe to come out help my problem?
