ATI 9800PRO 256MB 128bit??

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I just got this brandnew and it says 128bit.........*** is that??
I got a lousy 76fps on the tool, compared to my 1650pro with only 4 pipes has 180fps.

I thought this is a kicka$$ card!
Can I do anything to get the 256bit back ?
Flash it to a 9800XT perhaps?
It has samsung 413 rams
Thanks

Some 9800PROs were indeed 128bit (usually Sapphire had them). I remember there being a whole issue about it because vendors did not clearly labeled the different cards, so one would end up getting the cheaper 9800PRO and latter find out that it's only 128bit (it was a bit more powerful than a 9600XT). ATI latter started to clearly label the different cards to avoid problems (I even think some vendors got sued). I think you ended up with the 128bit version and I'm afraid there is nothing you can do about it (except get rid of the card).

Its going back, what a joke.
I am really not happy with ati right now, the heatsink doesnt even make contact with the crappy drr ram.
Why not say its a 9800se or non pro.
It obviously isnt a 9800pro, its like buying a 5.0 mustang that has a 6cylinder in it.

If you can return the card. Even a 256 bit 9800pro isn't going to be as fast as a x1650pro.

Dude... one question.... who did you listen to when you traded your 1650 for the 9800 128-bit?

I have the 1650pro back in.
I figured the 8 pipe 9800 would rock this 4 pipe 1650, no?
I thought it would be a r360 since its got a 2006 bios..........?
I think these pipes are wack and the 256 bit, uggghhhh.
I give up


Oh and the clocks, 324 and 229?
My 9600se could go 420 easily on the core, the 9800pro I seen sparkly mist at 400, thats garbage man.

It was really sneaky on Sapphire's part (the vendor that had these parts). Both cards are PROs since everything else is the same (same clock and RAM speeds).

It's junk, ATI made it not sapphire.
It's got crappy ddr1 ram.
The clock is 324 not 380 and the ram is 229, not 340 or anywhere close.
Its a 9800se and not even that cause 9800se has ddr2@ 680
