Ha ya Sorry about that, Me no pass da engrish class.

Yes but theoretically if the system is all GPU bandwith, The Latency issue wouldnt be a big deal with CPU FSB, And it'd all be about Memory bandwith then. Where theoretically It'd have more memory bandwith,

(Hey dont ask me thats what the guy said, GPU is faster not because of FSB but because of bandwith and the CPU has nothing to do with it)

I'm just offering a way to test that theory where CPU/FSB have little play and its all about GPU and Memory bandwith

IE the last 3 games tests of 3dmark2003, Or heck Even Far Cry, If the game isnt CPU limited And these tests arent at all, The Improved memory bandwith would improve performance and the FSB would running async wouldnt be such a latency issue
