RWT: Memory Bandwidth and GPU Performance

Tuesday 26th April 2011, 03:11:00 PM, written by Alex G

Our friends at RealWorldTech have put out a new article taking a look at memory bandwidth and its relevance to GPU performance:

"Memory bandwidth is a critical to feeding the shader arrays in programmable GPUs. We show that memory is an integral part of a good performance model and can easily impact graphics by 40% or more. The implications are important for upcoming integrated graphics, such as AMD’s Llano and Intel’s Ivy."

It's a pretty interesting analysis with a wide variety of GPUs referenced from AMD and nVidia. Check it out!
