I'd like to ask a question, which would help me decide which gpu to buy.
ATI/AMD 6950 has 160GB/sec bandwidth and GTX 560 Ti has 128. They have the same ROPs and rasterisers, but the 6950 has more texture units (88 vs 64) and 560 Ti has more tessallation units (8 vs 2). Both 1Gb.
On benchmarks and reviews, the two are very close to each other.
Now my question, why does the bigger bandwidth of the 6950 not put it on top of the 560 Ti?
I thought bigger bandwidth means better performance. Unless other factors come into play?
Steam processors or frequency?
