Default Re: THG sez 5900 is 8x1 and ti4600 4x2

They also consider the GeForce 5800 as an 8 x 1 part.

The entire NV3x line is based on a quad-pipeline which draw a 2x2 pixel tile. The number of processing units units inside the quad pipeline is different from card to card, but none of the NV3x GPUs is able to draw 8 pixel at once.
