    Finally picked up my Sapphire 9800 np today, and I must say Iam very pleased. Consequently the ATI Control panel is showing it as a 9800 Pro? I used a tweak utility to check the core/mem speeds and they appear to be right for a non-pro @ 325/578 BUT I tried oc'ing it and it runs stable at a core speed of 410mhz :shrug: Anyone else had or heard of something similar? As well it definately hasn't been modded because it uses the newer infineon(?) memory. Odd huh?

    Its fairly common for a 9800np to be detected as a 9800pro, and you can tend to OC it to Pro speeds :)

    No, that is perfectly normal, all 9800 cards say pro even if it is np. The clock speeds you have are of a np. I myself have the same card oc'ed to 440/320x2. I flashed it to pro bios but there isn't really any difference because i have infieneon 3.0ns chips. So your card is fine. Just oc that baby up then you should be fine. :cheers:
