This new card coming out will be a rip snorta :D, of course they will have ****e drivers though...
I havn't had a Radeon and would like to ask all who has or had, how much have they clocked their Radeon's too. Also did they have to put heatsinks on the memory chips as there are non factory installed (which is a bumb) : /

I have one of the Orig. Radeon 8500 Retails - with the 275/550 clocks

I've had mine up to 315/630 at which point I start to see minor artifacts

I have added additional cooling ot both the chip and memory - but in my experience this accomplishes very little.

the newer generation of Radeons will allow the chip and ram to be OC'd by different amounts - but it seems to bench higher if you keep both clocks the same
