2.0 GHz memory frequencies? No problem.
Anh beat me to
benchmarks by a few mere hours -- when you snooze, you lose at
. 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.
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.

RE: But can you disply the frames?
4/29/2007 8:06:19 PM
only thing i have to say:
minimum frame rate.
i use vsync (in my opinion it makes gameplay smoother /shrug), so my 8800GTS and my old x700 pro both could do 60FPS in world of warcraft. However, my minimum frame rate on my x700pro was in the 20s-with the 8800GTS, its 55. Its not the max frame rate that my eye notices and affects gameplay,its minimum, so i'd rather have a GPU that can keep the minimum FPS to a number my eye won't mind.
