Would have nice if they checked the shader clocks, but from the results I’m guessing its locked at 1350.. Don't really see the point in these factory overclocked cards if there going to lock the shader clock and in some cases loosen memory timings.. It's just going to perform worse then a standard 8800GTX at the same clockspeeds which can already overclock to 630/2000 with ease so bah… :thumbdwn:

Its at 1.35GHz on the shader clock.

Also, ROP clock is 621mhz.

I believe the shaders are clocked at 1458MHz as the shaders increase as you increase the core clock speed, they are not locked.

The shaders are locked at 1.35GHz. The shader clock does not automatically increase when you edit the BIOS. The shader clock only increases when you increase the core clock in Windows.

The XXX BIOS is over at Mavke's site.

The price for this is 528 over at Scan. The cheapest GTX is 380. A 148 premium to get this is totally unworth it in my opinion.

It's a complete waste of money, a standard GTX overclocked to 630/2000 will perform better and its pretty rare that one wont at least overclock that far. You may achieve a higher core overclock with this card/bios but its not directly comparable to a standard overclocked GTX due to the difference in the shader clock and memory timings.
