Default Pixel Shader 3.0 question


Notice here that X850 has 21 fps and an OC'd 7600GT has 13.

I'm assuming this is because the 7600GT is running ps3 and hdr, etc, hence the lower benchmark in this case?

I'm guessing this is why a 7600GT will bench lower than an X850 in ps3 applications?

Now I've read that if you have PS3, it will run PS2 applications even faster, sorta like if you have DX9 and you force DX7 like you do in call of duty you get an fps boost by running the dx9 card in a lower dx mode.

Keeping that in mind, if you had a 7600GT and used rivatuner to force the shader version to 2.0, like an X850 is standard, would it then surpass the X850 in this particular benchmark???
