The Radeon chip isn't really known for its overclocking, simply because its highly clocked itself. Despite this and with the extra cooling Gigabyte added, we were able to clock the core to 310MHz, a record for GPU clocking for us.
As for the memory, Hynix is known for its ability to push the limits and again this is no exception. Due to the extra cooling and lower latency, we got a memory speed of 310MHz (that's 620 DDR). Impressed? We were.
the ATi video cards have always copped a load of flack due to bad 2D quality when ATi sold their chips to integrators like ASUS and Gigabyte. This has somewhat changed with the introduction of internal filters and increased knowledge of the ATI specs. The latest ATi video cards from 3rd party companies have come out stronger then ever before.
Gigabyte have done a fantastic job with this card. Only due to ATi's OpenGL shortcoming did this card fall behind nVidia's Geforce3 Ti500 card. The ability to take out the Geforce 4 MX card makes this an ideal choice for an nVidia alternative.
Cheaper than nVidia
Lacks OpenGL performance
Drivers for ATi are a little outdated
