Default 7600 GT OC

I bought a bfg 7600 GT OC. Its advertised overclocked out of the box with a memory clock of 1450 MHz.

When I run nvidia-settings or nvclock in linux it shows the memory clock at :

Card: nVidia Geforce 7600GT
Card number: 1
Memory clock: 722.250 MHz
GPU clock: 578.571 MHz


why 722? should it not be 1450? i'm pretty new to this so bare with me

The box is advertizing the DDR2 rate (two transfers per actual clock), where nvclock is showing the actual clock rate.

DDR = Double Data Rate, so if you have a mem clock of 722.250; then multiply it by 2. 722.250*2 = 1444.5
