Gforce SDR OR DDR
« on: March 18, 2000, 12:32:00 PM »
in 1024 x 768 32 bits, is a big change in frame rate between a SDR or DDR Gforce card in AH ?
I am currently using a celeron 400 Oc 450 mhz.

thanks

Dudule, I don't know what kind of difference you would see between a SDR and a DDR card.

But I do know that I am getting very good fps out of my Guillemont 3D Prophet SDR card.

I know we discussed this on the radio yesterday, but if there is some more info I can give you I would be happy too.

I have the Guillemont 3D Prophet DDR and I like it.

Dudul, I'm not sure if you would see much difference from the SDR to the DDR unless you have a newer MB (with 133mhz FSB) and a faster processor.

If you plan on upgrading your MB and processor get the DDR, if not the SDR will do fine.

Check out Tom's Hardware site.  According to them, ONLY get the DDR versions.  SDR versions don't allow the GeForce processor to run very fast because of memory bottlenecks.  Of course, with the processor you have, I doubt you'd even notice much of a difference between a V770 ultra and a GeForce, as either would be capable of speeds much higher than your CPU will allow them to go.
