Of course there is a difference.. 128 bit of a difference. Ok really, yes there is a difference. The "speed" of the card is alot faster with higher bitage.

But that memory interface allows the 9700 to have twice the usable bandwidth of a 9500 PRO. It can access it's memory twice as fast, which has a huge impact on performance. ------------------ Radeon 9500 w/256 bit memory bus @ 367/310 AMD AthlonXP 2000+ 3dMark03: 3439 Can't find your answer ?
