Thats the only complaint anyones ever had about them, is the memory they use. Dont bother with thinking about "I could have got one with faster emeory" and enjoy your new card....I would.

use the 3.8s there's nothing wrong with them :p 
October 26, 2003 3:19:32 AM

This may be info you already have, but after you load the new cats ( the 3.8s work great for the 9600 pros) remember to set quality to max. I forgot and got halfway through halo thinking the graphics sucked. Better yet do the same thing I did, then you will really see what Ati chips are all about. Welcome to the club. The ram on your card may not clock as high as the BBA cards, but IQ is everything, one more frame/second means zip. Enjoy!!

<A HREF="http://www.sysopt.com/reviews/ati-AiW9600Pro/index.html" target="_new">My New Card</A> It runs at 500 chip/385 (DDR770) RAM. The problem I see is that your 3.3ns RAM will only run...maybe 300MHz (DDR600), a fairly large handicap.

I got a 20% performance gain by overclocking mine, it really helps when I'm using AA, AF, and high resolutions on DX9 games.

The two main issues are RAM, and $hitty Naming of cards. They also usually (at least for the R9600s I've heard about in the forums) have lesser overhead on the VPU too.

You shouldn't have any problems running it/them at stock speeds.

Now you can try and reach the same speeds as me, 535/365(730). But I wouldn't bet on it. :tongue:

Side Band Add= on or off? Same as above.
Stable o/c speed= Every card is different. Try it and see.
things to benchmark= 3dmark 01 and 03. Aquamark. Halo.

Did you disable FastWrites?

I had the same problem with the Omegas (but not the regular CATs)

Just a thought.

Oh, that and, GigaCube SUX! :tongue:

I'm still at work (got about 500 lines to re-assign, been at it since 10 am [it's 7pm now] :frown: ), I haven't had a chance to install them yet.

Try the Cat 3.7's for now (always roll-back instead of leaping ahead) and see if that fixes it).

When I get home (should be around 9pm), I'll try and install the Fujitsu Cat ~3.9 and let everyone know.

[Architect]Your signature is irrevocably emitting a wave forcefield against your ATi card and is therefore preventing it from operating. Ergo, you must nullify it before a system crash anomaly is found. A propos, this is timed and vis-a-vis your card, you face little time before it happens again. [/Architect]

i dont even bother trying 3Dmarks ><

OCZ PC 3500 2x256mb
Gigacube Radeon 9600pro 128mb
Maxtor 80Gb HDD (filled)

i'm thinking maybe there's too many stuff on my HDD i might get a Raptor when it becomes cheap and only have Games+benchmarks on there. But WTF IS WRONG WITH MY SYSTEM!!

You didn't do a clean install did you? Did you run the driver cleaner from driver heaven? Detonator ripper sucks. Even driver cleaner doesn't have a perfect score. My Aquamark with 2500+ and 9600pro (BBA) is 25000.
October 29, 2003 3:41:25 AM

no i was too lazy :p 
but i used Detonator RIP and Nasty file remover
and i ran 3Dmarks 2k1/2k3
now this is when i want to kill myself
keep in mind i'm using the latest omega with max performance
3Dmarks 2001- 9873 (I am about to kill someone)
3Dmarks 2003- didn't even finish and it froze! (i want to KILL NOW)

if it's still [-peep-] up by tom night i'm reinstalling XP :@ and if it's still [-peep-] up..... FORMAT C:\ :@
if it's still [-peep-] up.... i'm gonna do a little something called "FIXING" the computer PHYSICALLY :@

Sorry dude, but that's woeful with that card. <b><font color=red>Format</b></font color=red> time I reckon.

Are you sure all the other stuff under windoze is working properly? And you didn't do something stoopid like stick your primary HDD on the same IDE channel as an Optical drive? And you're HDD is definitely running in DMA mode?

Hell, I get just under 14000 3dMarks in '01 myself, and I've only got a Geforce4Ti4600! :lol:

hmmm... time to 'bite the bullet' then... FORMAAAT!!! :evil: 

If you're sure everything is running at the proper speed, then it must be a driver issue, and if you've tried all the 'lazy options' to get shot of the old ones, I guess all you've got left is the format option.

just a quick thought - what are your temps? Is it possible your P4 is overheating and throttling down?
