View Full Version : 6800 memory speed

Which 6800 has the fastest chips?

Since Unwinder has succesully unlocked the 6800 pipelines I'm thinking of getting one, but all the 6800 brands I've seen have 700mhz memory but I don't know which has the fastest chips.

The gainward golden sample should do slightly better because it's handpicked to do so.

I heard leadtek has 2.8ns Hynix chips which are really just relabeled 2.2ns Memory chips

2.2ns is pretty much a gaurenteed 900 mhz, Mine for example uses 2.2ns Memory but since mines a reference model i cant really reccomend it.

I think most can do around 850 (EVGA here at 850) at least, but memory overclocking alone doesn't seem to have a huge effect on performance. Maybe it will if you get 4 quads working..

Albatron uses:
2.0ns on the ultra (ddr3)
2.0ns on the gt (ddr3)
2.5ns on the nu (ddr)
2.8ns on the le (ddr)

or so their technical documentation says.
