Writeback vs. write-thru

Recommended Posts

This may not be a big issue but I just read a post where someone with a 1.9 gig machine was only averaging 6fps with 3d clouds. I'm getting 20fps or better with 3d clouds on my P4 2.0 System.I was thinking that some people may not be aware that in the BIOS settings, there is a selection for write-back and write-thru which is how data is sent to memeory cache. Write-back is much faster and, on my system, it is dramatically faster than using write-thru.So if anyone is getting frame rates much slower than expected, the above may be something to check.Bob K

Likely said person (with 6 fps) was running with Anti-Aliasing.
