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 :)

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
