Thread: ahhh!! what happened?? 9500Pro -> 9700Pro

    last year when the new radeons came out, I bought myself a 9500pro 128mb. I flashed the bios and everything in order to overclock it to 9700 speeds. My 3dmark01 scores were at least 13k. sold the card and stayed with 8500LE. (fyi: I get 10k+ with the 8500LE)

    a year passed..

    today, i recieved my 9700pro AIW and overclocked it with R3D to 350/330 (core/mem respectively). I ran 3dmark01 again and I cant even break 13k. I was at least expecting 15K(what a let down).

    (fyi: I uninstalled all ati drivers [restart] then reinstalled newest ati drivers [restart])

    I have the same exact components in my system as when I had the 9500pro a year ago.

    I even set all the OpenGL/D3D settings to High Performance and I actually get lower scores (11k+).. wtf??

    any ideas?

    here's my specs:
    xp1700+ @2088
    corsair xms2700 (dual chan) @ 2-2-2-5 @166
    k7n8x deluxe
    WD800 7200/8mb + Maxtor 80g 7200/8mb
    generic 350w PS
    liteon dvd drive
    liteon cdr/rw

    used to be that AIW cards had slower memory to save $[mine,aiw pro 8meg, love the tv and capture], , ,but i thought the 9700 had the same... so this is a surprise to me..,maybe the interface between the tv out/capture omponents?
    k6-2 .and . . . AMD 64bit|3.2,1G[2326],9800xt [both died] miss my 500 K's
    recycled from the trash [and in use]
    2 = 945G chipset boards 2G Celeron and dual Pentium
    3 = AM-37 FIK motherboards 2-2.6 G
    in storage 810/815 chipset P3's 800MHZ[4setup and +? not]
