    No, someone needs to bring up 3dfx cards for it to go really o.t

    Until they bought STB, hired a consultant to redo their image, and subsequently changed it to 3dfx... :p

    well

    to be honest. it is now isn't it?
    Look at Fuad's numbers from his FarCry 2 benchmark:
    http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?o...=view&id=11892&Itemid=40&limit=1&limitstart=2

    at 2560x1600 (noAA) a 4850 with 512MB needs to be clocked at about 750 Mhz (4870 level) to match framerates of a 1GB 4850 with default clocks. at 1920x1200 those cards still offer a comfortable lead. So yes. even if you go back from 0.8ns to 1.0ns DDR3 the advantages are more than marketable at those resolutions.
