    Got Myself an ATI Radeon X800 PRO

    well thanks to Shuffl@ from here ive got myself an X800PRO.

    now i had the highest clocked 9600XT i have ever seen, untill it died, my 6600GT was clocked pretty high so now id like to know what my X800 PRO is likely going to be able to do when i get it tomorrow.

    what sort of overclocks can these cards pull from the core and memory? what about unlocking pipelines ive heard that the VIVO cards can be modded into XT PE's well what about the normal X800PRO (it might be a VIVO, im not sure yet)

    and im going to get an ATI silencer for it like 2 of my 9600XT's had.

    any other usefull info i should know?

    cheers,
    Martin

    It varies between cards I believe, the 2 Pro I had (Blewup the first one somehow) they clocked different and both where BB ATI.

    Just be careful clocking the DDR 3 memory.

    Thats a nice card

    As for overclocking, quite honestly, I decided to not overclock video cards anymore.
    Reward simply doesnt justify the risk, IMO.

    Also I am a bit hesitant about aftermarket coolers and how cheap this things got.

    So as long as I like the speed of my card and have 2 year warranty on it, I am happy.
    Let others worry about cooling and how the HSF fits.
    If they botched something they will give me a new one.

    well at stock its likely going to be faster than my 6600GT when its maxed out so maby i wont overclock it.

    to be honest i was running my cards at defaults yesterday and it didnt seem any slower so i think my system is a bottle neck. might think about a S939 system with an AGP slot.

    Doesn't necessarily mean it's the rest of the system, remember, the X800 has quite a different architecture to your 6600GT so adding those extra pipes could unlock that potential you feel you're missing. Also, even if it is a game that's CPU limited, that just means you can use your new card to up the resolution, detail levels or filtering (just the latter two if you're TFT-bound ).

    An upgrade to S939 with AGP seems a rather perverse move rather than making a simultaneous shift to PCIe. That is unless you got a VERY good deal on that X800 Pro.

    Look forward to seeing how she does anyway, especially on that monster FSB. I don't think a shift to Athlon 64 will be necessary just yet!

    i LOVE this thing, i gave it a run through 3DMark05 to see what it could do.

    at stock it managed to pull off 4680

    i then gave it a little overclock to see what it can do, i clocked it to 500/500 and then ran 3DMark and got 4928

    i wanted to get 5000 as it looks and sounds better! so i then left the core at 500 and clocked the memory to 530 and ran it, i couldn't beleive my eyes, i can swear that this ISN'T edited. RESULT

    I'm still hugging my 9800 Pro, I bought it a year ago and it's still only 11 cheaper (now 119).

    I will let go when I go A64 and PCI-e early next year I think

    Hopefully I'll still get 60 on eBay for it!

    Sorry that was off topic a bit, great score Martin, try and get it again though with exactly the same settings

    Don't suppose your Geil RAM is the one with the blue aluminium heat spreaders by any chance??

    I'm looking to o/c it, haven't really tried, but if ours are exactly the same, I have a start point at least!

    yup the value series with the blue heat spreaders.

    going to replace it soon with some Geil Ultra X to get some nice timings.

    well gave it another run in 3DMark05 to see what it could do and was pretty impressed
