OK i recentley purchased an ati x850 pro "weee", ok but this is my concern does any1 know the genuine clocks of this card core and mem... ive seen a few web pages state its core is 500mhz and mem just above 1000mhz, but ati tool seems to think differentley showing me 500mhz core and 500mhz memory. Quite confusing even when so many web pages show 1000mhz as a mem clock. Also i would like to monitor the temperature of the gpu, ive tried catalyst control center but i dont think there are any options there that display it........ any programs out there that you guyz are using or perhaps one of you have an X850 and know a program the could do such monitoring.
Thank You

ATI tool and rivatuner both monitor temperature, the memory is whats called double data rate, so its actual speed is half that of what is rated so 1000Mhz is 500Mhz.

In terms of how fast it goes its trial and error you increase speed by 5mhz a time until it starts to get artifacts and then you go back one and stop or pick one slower to get a lower temp.

Well thats a different card from a newer release so the frequencies will be different, ATI tool shold show the temps, if not update the drivers and try rivatuner.
