Default Re: THG sez 5900 is 8x1 and ti4600 4x2 < NV3x explained

The NV3x gpus had quite a radical design and the conventional "pipeline x TMUs" definition cannot be applied to them. All of them (from the lowly FX5200 up to the FX5950) are able to pull a maximum of 4 pixels per clock. The NV30/35 have also the ability to apply two textures per pixel in a pass (thus being similar to a 4x2 design) and have twice the shader ALUs of their maistream counterparts
