Yep, the default clocks of that card are higher than yours? Got a problem with that?

x1900 has different clock speeds 2d is urs right now. 3d is when you run 3d apps such as games. It will automatically change. If u want to overclock i just use ati overdrive. I put requested at 680 and memory at 750. Apply on windows logon and you are set to go.

The ATI x1800/x1900 cards have 2D/3D clock switches. The 500/600 frequencies are in 2D mode. An X1900XT runs at 625/750 in 3D mode.

To properly overclock an X1900XT, check my FAQ. This applies for ATITool 25, beta 14. I find beta 15 too buggy, and I have not tried 16 yet.
Overclock an X1800 or X1900 with ATITool.
