  1. Hey guys hows it goin ...I just have a slight problem...

    I bought a New Radeon X800 XL, after installing it says my core clock speed is about 400 Mhz which is correct but memory speed shows 490 Mhz. isnt it suppose to be more than 900 mhz?

    Was the card sold to you at a surprisingly low price? ;)

    Many, actually most makers will sell the cards at full spec for the regular prices, then make bastardized versions with lower specs and sell them at lower prices. If the price is too good to be true..... it usually is.

    What make is it, and what is it's model number?

    its an ATI RADEON X800 XL GDDR 3
    but i found the solution so no worries it says 490 Mhz but its actually 980 becaues its GDDR 3 so basically its 2x490Mhz
