    Nope - it's a dutch site.... it was posted over at rage3d, nvnews and elitebarstards too so yeah - every hardware enthusiast on the planet is probably hammering it :evil:

    I don't think that site's used to traffic earlier because it was v slow even when practically no-one knew it was there....

    I looked at the numbers:

    3dmk03:

    9800pro-256
    Code:
    1024x768             5.789
    1024x768/8AF/4AA     2.580
    1600x1200            3.306
    1600x1200/8af/4aa    1.550
    
    9800XT-256
    Code:
    1024x768             6.505
    1024x768/8AF/4AA     3.320
    1600x1200            3.682
    1600x1200/8af/4aa    1.788
    
    Not too exciting...looks like a 10%-15%ish increase across the board.

    There's more benchmarks there, but I'm too lazy to type them in. Codecreatures: about the same percentage increase over the 9800 pro/256 as the 3dmk03 numbers. (Though more uniformly about 10% faster). 3dmk01: less than 10% increase because its being CPU limited.

    I don't read dutch, either, so there may be more interesting things in the text (like new features, or something).

    I can still hit the webpages, though its really really slow. Just be persistant.

    The only new thing is dynamic overclocking, but that is not yet activated in the drivers. I think that's one of the new things in the 3.8 catalyst drivers. The card max temp is 55 degree Celcius, so i clocks higer when the case-temps is lower.

    The managed to get the card to 470 core.

    (this is what i rember)
