Turn Your RADEON 9500 into RADEON 9700


Recommended Posts

As is known, ATI introduced the whole family of R300 based graphics chips: RADEON 9700 Pro, RADEON 9700, RADEON 9500 Pro and RADEON 9500. The first two versions, RADEON 9700 Pro and RADEON 9700, differ from one another only by the working frequencies: the graphics cards based on RADEON 9700 Pro support 325MHz chip and 620MHz (310MHz DDR) memory frequencies, while RADEON 9700 based cards work at 275MHz chip and 540MHz (270MHz DDR) memory frequencies. The distinguishing feature of RADEON 9500 Pro based solutions is the cut down memory bus: 128bit DDR SDRAM one. And finally, the slowest of them, RADEON 9500, features 4 pixel pipelines instead of 8 typical of its three elder brothers.

Well I tried to do this last month. And it didn't work. So I just bought a 9800np with 2.8ns ram to solve all of my worries. I didn't luck out on the 9500np bizz, but I got lucky on the 9800np! :D - I was lucky because it ocs like crazy.
