Smartshader 3.0 isn't about better image quality, it gives better performance whereas the image quality gets un-noticably worse

Like I have mentioned on a previous thread... The current technology is not ready to take the full advantage of PCI-E.

So existing technology can only take partial advantage... Which is still an advantage

With the current technology, the performance is little when comparing to AGP.

The next generation of video cards are going to be released in the early 2005 (ex.: R520). That's the time to get into PCI-E.

I don't believe current cards take full advantage of AGP 8x yet, do they?

too bad there is no improvement in the way of PCI-E cards yet.
