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|600 and above 6 pts per clock This is an example of how the core and memory are SUPPOSED TO BE CALCULATED Quote a bit outdated though... -_-.
