    GeForce Pro Mem Speed?

    Hey I got a question for all of you... I thought the GeForce 2 Pro cards were supposto be running (200/400) core/ddr ram I got a Leadtek Winfast GTS Pro and it was advertised as having a 200/400 but when I went to oc it powerstrip and the leadtek oc program said it was running 200/365. This would mean it has a memory clock of 2x166 right? I bought the pro because it said it had 5ns memory at the site running at 400...what the heck is this. I also checked the leadtek site and they say it's 366 and 5.5ns. I believe this is a little bit of false advertising...I want my money back..lol !

    I think the leadtek version of the card you have is the 64Mb GTS "Pro" version, and not an actual Geforce2 Pro. As far as im aware, all Geforce2 Pro's come with 400Mhz 5ns memory as standard. Mine goes all the way to 250/480 with standard cooling

    Dude...
    I've been waiting for someone to post about this. I have an MSI Geforce 2 GTS Pro 64MB and have the same exact issue... Tried the MSI utility, Rivatuner, Powerstrip, and the CoolBits hack, and they all told me 365 is the default memory clock . I thought there was something wrong with my card, but I guess it's supposed to be @365... Of course, since I ordered and only paid for a (regular 32MB) GTS, I can't complain about them having sent the 64MB Pro model, even if the memory timing is below 400 at default . Besides, I have mine at 215/440, anyway...

    Are you sure the card is not a GTS 64meg model?? These were made prior to the Pro's and some even had a memory clock of 333Mhz...

    I went to the leadtek website and looked at my card there is a 32 and a 64 version...I have the 32. Their website says it is running 200/366 (which shows up as 365 on the oc utilities; makes sence) But at the site I bought it at it says that that card I ordered was running 200/400 and i'm pissed because it isn't. On leadtek's website they also have a 64meg pro card that has 5ns ddr and is running 200/400. God dammit I'm gonna be making a few calls tomorrow to pc beyond...see if I can scare um with false advertising...maybe i can get a 64 meg card out of this...

    Bye the way I have it running at 225/425 right now and i'm sure it would go a little higher. But I was hoping for some 225/480 action.

    I have an Asus V7700 GeForce 2 GTS 32 meg DDR and it's default speed is 200/333, which is the speed of regulat GTS cards i think, i can overclock it to 220/364 and it runs rock solid stable.

    Acording to an artical I read at Tom's hardware the GTS is supposto run 200/366 with some of the older ones running 200/333 the Pro version is supposto be 200/400 and the ultra is 250/460. The reason I bought this card is to overclock it and I heard that leadtek cards oc'ed great. Well this one seams great but i wanted the Pro that was advertised because it starts higher and would definitly oc higher. If I oc the ram on the card I got higher than 430 i start to get pixel noise.

    Thanks for all the posts guys turns out I have a pro card but the guy said leadtek stoped making the pro's with 5ns memory and they are only clocked 200/366 oh well I only spent 150 on it I guess I'll start saving my money for a GF3 next year.
