ATI Radeon X850 PRO SPEED

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 


This is my first highspeed graphics card so I am confused. Every review I have read so far and all advertisements for the X850 PRO states that the Core runs at 520. Yet my card is 500. I find it hard to believe all the reviews I have read are wrong. Did ATI back the card down for some reason? Can some please enlighten me as to what the core is suppose to be rated at?

Thanks

the x850 pro runs at 500 core/500 memory speed.

The x850XT runs at 520 core/540 Memory.

There are programs like ATI tool you can overclock with to higher speeds, watch your temps you should be able to run XT speeds on stock cooling, i have a zalman cooler many recommend them my load temps at XT speeds are 57C for core. also bios flashing can unlock pipelines if ur lucky. i ahve seen those places that say core is 520 as well, its a misprint or its just talking abotu the "x850 series" but 500/500 is normal speeds for the pro.

Thanks for the come back. I think I should wait until I get the Zalman 700cu before uping the speed to the XT. Right now my load core temp is 84C unless I set the fan to 100% then it is 78C. I have already opened the pipes to 16 but keep my core at 500.
