2.0 GHz memory frequencies? No problem.

Anh beat me to R600 benchmarks by a few mere hours -- when you snooze, you lose at DailyTech. Needless to say, I feel somewhat compelled to add my benchmarks to the mix as well. 

The system I'm using is an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800, ASUS P5N32SLI-E with 2x2GB DDR2-800.  My tests this morning used the Catalyst 8.361 RC4 driver.  The card used was a Radeon HD 2900 XT 512MB.

Core Clock
Memory Clock
745 MHz
800 MHz
800 MHz
900 MHz
845 MHz
950 MHz
845 MHz
995 MHz

Like Anh, I was able to get pretty close to a 2.0GHz memory clock while still keeping the system stable.  For reference, my GeForce 8800 GTX (core clock at 650 MHz, memory at 2.0 GHz) scores 14128 (1280x1024) and 11867 (1600x1200) on the same system with ForceWare 158.19. 

I'm currently benchmarking the Radeon HD 2900 XTX, though I'll revist the XT if anyone has any particular requests.

512-bit memory interface & OC'ing...

Appears to be a good combination. I am starting to wonder why I need to wait for HD 2900XTX for at this point? There is no laundry list DX10 games on the horizon except for Crysis and Halo 2 (I had enough of that with the xbox) therefore if the xtx is faster you are actually paying for it. I mean right now my x1900xtx gets 7168 OC'd:
E6700 OC 3.0
Cat 6.3

The reason for a HUGE score is the quad core, that site used only a dual core. 3dmark06 uses quad cores very well.

here you go (an example right here)
Intel Core 2 Quad 2667 MHz
3dmark06 11900
SM 2.0 4893
SM 3.0 4981
CPU 3956

Halo 2 is not DX10, just Vista-exclusive. It's still only DX9. So yeah, Crysis is about it. Some current games will get updates though (Company of Heroes).
