ATI RADEON X800 XT & X600 XT PCI-E Performance Preview

I was very interested to see anything else with PCI-E, since as you know I am saving for that new machine right now, and it just needs to have all of these goodies. Now that the 915 and 925 family of chipsets are here, PCI Express is coming forth for the first time. So, its time to look at some PCI Express graphics cards so I can think about what's going in my future rig.

Why do we want PCI Express? Well,[COLOR=#1951B9] "...not only does the new interface provide more bandwidth than AGP, it also opens up new possibilities for game developers, for instance collision detection and physics calculations can be offloaded to the GPU."
