    I haven't seen the review yet, but AFAIK, the Cat 3.8's aren't due until Oct 8th....

    they do need a driver that supports the dynamic overclocking right?

    From their news headlines:

    I will take a stab at that.. something about the server being overworked...?

    "Unfortunately, due to an again unknown cause there was no communication possible with the server. In the mean time, we have been to Amsterdam and after a short examination have restarted the machine. It seems to be working again...

    Of course we will keep an eye on the servers."

    The review makes the assumption that only using the lowest Dynamic clocking mode is the typical setting. Using the optimal setting increases 3Dmark03 to 6988 which will offer a great performance boost for games like HL2! (Of course I'm basing this on a translation where it seems to imply that they have the Dynamic Clocking working).

    Anyone think that ATI might be pulling some driver trick (by that I mean alternate driver path) with the RTCW scores like they did with the 9800PRO when it came out?

    If so, then hopefully they'll trickle the optimizations down to "lesser" R300 cores. If not, it looks like they either made some slight core modifications or got lower latency memory.

    Edit: I meant RTCW, not UT2003.

    Does make you wonder how valid the benchtests are eh (assuming it's not a hoax :wink: ).
    If they are correct but just tested at wrong core that would give the Asus 9800XT a 3Dmark03 score of around 7242

    Based on Krona conversion rate the 9800XT is £380.29 / $630.41
