I was wondering why my ati 9800 pro is showing only a 337 for its Memory speed? when it is listed as 680 on other sites i've looked at. like on newegg when i lookup the same card i have on there it has 380 for the core mem, mine is 378 close enough, and the mem speed is 680, and mine is 337 whats the problem?

Don't know for sure that's the reason why, but the video card uses DDR (Double Data Rate) memory, so 337*2 is almost equal to 680 ;)
I guess you don't have to worry about this; but wait for another advice ;)

howling has answered it correctly :D

for marketing it sounds better to have a bigger number so the dd clock rather than the actual clock is put forth..

If Waddy doesn't object use the NTFS Organization as the Publication you are requesting the review samples for.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
