Why does Asus sell their HD 7950 With the stock clock?

As seen in this article on tom's, The Asus HD 7950 is clocked at 900mhz.

However, The ONLY option available on Newegg has a speed of 800mhz.

I will be buying this card soon and overclocking. Is there anything I should know before getting it? And why is the speed at stock?

Thank you.

  1. the one on newegg is a version 2
    dont know why they they dropped it to 800mhz
    but it should probably overclock to 1000mhz anyway
    remember it takes up a few slots my old asus gtx570 took 3 slots up
