i noticed it before and i am just going to ask because i find it quite a difference.

 

my gtx 480 zotac amp overclocked gpu-z screen:

other gtx 480 non overclocked:

how come mine is clocked 10gpixel lower then the stock ones? :S

is it the bios i have or is it something else?

i find 10 gpixels ALOT of difference and i think it hurts my cards performance as well.

and if someone knows, how can i get those clocks on my gtx 480?

 

now that i am on the question, what does pixel rate do in gaming?

what is the benefit of having a high pixelrate?

 

 

thanks in advance :)

You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

never mind,

 

found out it was gpu-z's fault, i donwloaded the 4.0 version and i got 40.8Gpixels as it should

my memory bandwith is lower tho :C

 

 

but i also have read that the fermi is the only card doing difficult with the newer gpu-z's so a thing to remember next time :P
