A friend of mine has just got the the BFG 8800GTS OC 320MB, however he said hes a little confused, he said all his apps including RivaTuner, Nvidia CP and Everest etc read the card as a 640mb..... he has looked on the card and the stickers quotes 320mb....

Basically does anybody have any ideas why a 320MB card would show up as a 640MB card in RivaTuner, Nvidia CP and Everest etc?

Thanks.

Maybe he just got lucky.,I would think one of those programs would read it as a 320mb if that is what it is.

Yeah well thats what i though, i googled it and ive read in another forum thats its happened to atleast two people, both with BFG's.

How many ram chips would a 320MB card have compared to a 640MB model?

Theres a pic of the 320 ram chips

And according to other google pics the 320 has 10.

Well the 640 also has 10. Just different sizes of ram.
