    I read articles from beyond3d.com that ATi's 9800np came with 2.8ns chips when they were first shipped, i was wondering if this is true, and if anyone is a proud owner of this card? Like me, i think most 9800np owners are stuck with 3.0ns which can't do jack SH**

    You look on the memory chip on your video card.

    The early cards had "3.3ns" Samsung memory which was basically just 2.86ns with less voltage at a lower speed.

    A BIOS flash permitted these cards to be run as a Pro model in every respect including clock speeds.

    This can't be done anymore because of the use of Infineon or Etrontech memory instead.
