Strange what you say, I bought a Powercolor 9800Pro (brand new, retail, but half the retail price at time it was launched about 1 year ago or so...), and it is clocked as Ati tells it should be, minus 2-3Mhz but Sazar (Ati specialist here) told me at this time is was normal to have a tiny difference from one video card to another... but mine isn't an OEM one, that should explain it...cryogenic said:9700 Pro should be 325 core/300 mem, if I remember correctly... I actually bought a card expecting a Pro, but it was a whitebox OEM made by powercolor. I found out much later that Powercolor doesn't clock their OEM cards as high. It came clocked @ 325/300, but would crash constantly at those speeds... I found out from Powercolor's site that it was only supposed to be 277 core, 270 mem. I run it at around 285/290 and it runs fine now. But I thought I was buying a pro.
