Im just curious to know, who has the absolutely fastest and best Radeon (9xxx series and up) This is something like a competition, use the formula to calculate how your ATI Card ranks up

Post the features of the card if you want, and please state the card that you post results for!!!

ATI-Mrk scoring, by Tkpenalty

By the way, these criteria need to be met:
-Card must be 9xxx series and up
-Must be stable
-in working order

-If its not a DX10 GPU it will never ever surpass 10k mark

To see who has the ATI GPU, it will be in a formula, like a point system that goes like this:
Broken cards are instantly out of this "competition". PM me if you have questions to ask
Remember to check everything, if you aren't sure what you have for the cooling section just add it if you think you have it.

Core Speed:
|0mhz 1pts per clock |400mhz 2pts per clock |500mhz 3pts per clock |higher than 600 +4pts per clock

Memory Speed: (Only count the single channel speed, as in only 280x2, not the 560mhz speed (exclude the x2 obviously).
|0mhz| 1pts per clock |250mhz 3pts per clock |400mhz 4pts per clock |500mhz 5 pts per clock |600 and above 6 pts per clock

This is an example of how the core and memory are SUPPOSED TO BE CALCULATED
Quote a bit outdated though... -_-.

Memory Latency: (note that if your memory has a non integer ns, just round off
-4.0ns = +250 points
-5.0ns = +150 points
-3.0ns = +350 points
-2.0ns = +400 points
-1.0ns = +500 points

Memory Type:
-DDR1 = +100
-DDR2 = +200
-DDR3 = +300

-Ramsinks yes/no = +50 points/-10 points
-Stock core cooling yes/no -50 points/+0 points
-Stock fan/Stock passive cooler = +50 points/+25 points
-Non-Stock fan, 80mm mounted/Zalman, Blue Orb etc/40mm mounted = +75 points/+150 points/+50 points
-Water Cooling (wtf) = +120 points
-Cooling for voltage controls = +20 points
-Cased Cooling, i.e. Arctic Cooling, Heatinks in case with fan = +50

Capabilities

Artifact Frequency
-Non stop artifacts = -99999999999 and thing is that its considered unstable; ur out of this
-1 per per second = -400 points
-1 per minute avg = -250 points
-1 per half hour avg = -200 points
-1 per hour avg = -100 points
-1 per 3 hours = -20 points
-No artifacts (6 hours) = +200 points

Misc:
-Voltmodding = +250 points
-Plate shielding (shielding from heat) = +100 points
-Silent card = +100 points
-Noisy Card = -100 points
-Fan connector = +20 points
-Temperature Monitor = +40
-Fan speed = +60
-Flashing = +100
-Pipe Unlocking = +100

Manufacturer:
-Asus = +200 points
-GeCube = +225 points
-HIS = 215 points
-Sapphire = +205 points
-Club 3D = +250 points
-Others = +200 points
-Powercolour = +215 points

Pipelines
-4 +200 points
-8 +300 points
-more than 8 +400 points

Card Series
-9000 series +100
-10x series +200
-11x Series +300
-All in wonder +200, also add to your 9k,10x,11x series card score

Crossfire
-Master/Crossfire Capability +200

=====================================================================

My Radeon Sapphire 9550 (505/280x2) Scores: 2436

5595, if I calculated correctly. If I was supposed to count the efective speed of my memory, then I am WAYYY under my current score. This is really quite complicated you know.

Did you do this, EG: Clock speed: 300 first 250mhz you give 250 points, then for the last 50 points, you give 2 more points per clock. Totalling in 150 points, total them up and you get the points for the memory.

Ill post what stock GPUs should get.

Why do CLub3D cards get +250?

EDIT:I got 5590..

4770, well, i guess my card cant compete against the x1000 series
looks like youve put a lot of thought into this.
one suggestion: why just one score for voltmodding? why not points per 0.1v addition or something?

Dutch shops are full of them. Ever thought about various vendors selling in various areas?
I've never seen an evga card for example here. Doesn't make them rare though.

True. Here in Sweden Club3D-cards are cheapo-cards. Not that they're bad though.. I love them.

Nice... How do you keep it that stable at those clocks???

BTW you did it wrong,

For Core: after 400 MHZ or 400 points, multiply the next set of clocks, by 2 until you reach 500 mhz (so therefore you have 200mhz remaining) then for the last remaining amount of mhz you multiply it by 3. Then add up 400 (400x1)+200 (100x2)+600 (200x3) = 1200 points
Your clock points should rate as follows:
Same applies for RAM, except at different value intervals.

Thats right. Did you add the artifact factors as well?

Yeh they calculated it wrong. Add 200 for all in wonder.

Guys who got more than 4k please look at the first page and redo it, you might get the best score. Guys who posted scores please check the first page again...
Damulta, include the clocks before 500 as well... except that those clocks before recieve less points.

ok, going the long way:

core 400*1+100*2+50*3= +750

mem 250*1+150*3+100*4+50*5= +1350

Memory latency 2.0 +400

Memory type DDR3 +300

Cooling
no Ramsinks -10
Cased Cooling +50pts

Capabilities

Artifact Frequency
No artifacts (6 hours) +200

Misc
Silent card +100
Fan connector +20
Temperature Monitor +40
Fan speed +60

Manufacturer
other +200

Pipelines
more than 8 +400

Card Series
10x series +200 (not sure since it´s a X800... referring to multa´s post)

==> 4260 again... do i miss something?

not at all... this is my "every-day-use" OC, artifacting starts at 580MHz core...
