The number of texture units per render pipe, and the basic render pipe count and setup doesn't change. 8x1 always ;)
Great stuff though, especially given the time we had with that board!

Time with the X700 XT was tight, but not quite as tight as the time I had to bench the 9800 XT and 9800 PRO - they arrived at 7:30pm last night. Or rather, I picked them up at 7:30pm from my local City Link depot. Never trust a courier to deliver... :|
I stated that the 6600GT is a hybrid 8x1/4x2 configuration. It's not quite either, because of the fact that it only writes four pixels per clock when the core is processing single textures and fog/layering effects - it essentially processes these in a 4x2 configuration. This is the reason why I've stated that it's a hybrid 8x1/4x2 core design. :)

Nice review on the HIS as well today. I looked at the non VIVO version recently for a budget roundup and it was top of the pile. Not bad if you're on a budget I spose.
Keep up the good work, I'll hang around the forums a bit more
