Default Re: why do fx cards perform so badly in 3dmark05

"OK then, let me put it this way, looking at your figures and aassuming you had a 6800 non ultra and Unwinders rivatuner would you rather have an extra VP or an extra 4 pipelines"

I was talking about people having a 6800nu and uprating otherwise I would have said

"OK then, let me put it this way, looking at your figures would you rather have an extra VP or an extra 4 pipelines"

sorry if that was not clear.

The fact is that for both modded X800's and nvidia 6800nu's getting a big gain when going to 16 pipelines means to me that the pieplines are what is important to have and the vertex is a secondary benefit, as you say because you get 4 pipelines at a go.

We'll have to disagree on this oen I guess.
