Default Re: 5700 or 9100

A 9100 is a rebranded 8500 with lower clocks. (Most of them used 5ns RAM)

It all depends on how is clocked that 5700. If it follows NVidia raccomandations (3.6nS RAM, core 400 MHz or higher) then it's a better product. If the 5700 is really a "LE" variant (with 5nS RAM and a 250 MHz core) then the 9100 might still have an edge.

Remember, though, that the 5700 is a full SM2.0 card while the 9100 still uses sm 1.4
