Default Re: Official "I just got a Geforce GTX 460/465/470/480" thread

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?


Sorry, I thought your initial comment was about the lack of PCIE bandwidth.
