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.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
