    They took 9800XT up to 600/860 MHz. Here is a comment from the article.

    Well the article showed where the bottle neck is... with one game anyway. Which I guess is valuable information, but then he has to go and speak.

    Ah, you just have to love conclusions like that one.

    The beauty of the digit-life/xbit articles is that they are well suited to being printed on a roll of toilet paper and you give them what they deserve when you are done reading them.

    yes I know that. I just thought it will be interesting to see how close to actual R420 they are with this prediction. If this chip really going to be beefed up/die shrink version of r3x00 then they may be not that far off. besides if it indeed is 40% faster than 9800xt then it is nearly twice as fast as 9700pro as ATI told some time ago.

    But that wasn't aircooled .. :wink: That makes the 600Mhz core very impressive.
