    hey there, i have a Atlantis radeon 9200SE 128bit 128mb and i think the clock speeds could be wrong, ive searched the web and cant find what the clock speeds are, so i turn here one again! anyone know the clock speeds?


    thanks :thumb:

    Can only find 64bit cards m8, speeds are shown as 200/400 (gpu/ram)
    The ATI website doesnt give much information on the cards either :(
    What clock speeds is the card running atm?

    ;) Yeah, if you have the card at the mo install Omega drivers, a tweak tool or check in 3Dmark03's diag report. The 9200Se are supposed to have 64bitDDR which really cripples perf, having 128bitDDR is supposed to make it a 9200 (nonSE) so perhaps the 128bit version uses lower clocks or SDR RAM (both common so they can claim 128bit). For reference a 9200 has to be at 275/550 to give 8500LE/GF3 perf, it's well recommended not to buy this low, if the budget really is this tight look second hand.

    Off to Graphics Cards, where more people might know ;)

    ;) From what I understand after reading around, the official specs call for ...

    9200SE = 200/166 of 64bitDDR (200/333 effective) yielding 800Mp/s and 2.66GB/s.
    9200 = 250/200 of 128bitDDR (250/400 effective) yielding 1000Mp/s and 6.4GB/s.

    :cooldude: So 9200 has a 25% faster core and nearly '2 and a half' times faster RAM. If your card uses 64bitDDR or 128bitSDR it's effectively right on spec, if it uses 128bitDDR you'd have a large perf boost, the 9200 would still have a 25% faster core but only 20% faster RAM. Best way to test would be to benchmark then compare to someone else's stock 9200SE or 9200 (9000 is equal to 9200 BTW). The main problem is that both nVidia and ATI care little about what manu's do with the low-end cards, so clock speeds and implimentation can vary quite dramatically anyway, almost always for the worst.

    :D So benchmark, then if you're half the speed of a 9000/9200 then you have 64bitDDR or 128bitSDR, if you're only 20% slower then you have 128bitDDR. If you compare on 3Dmark2001 bear in mind most people o/c. Unfortunately as is the norm, there's nothing in the description of your card to indicate clocks or memory type, I haven't checked the consumer reviews as unfortunately it's often a case of the blind leading the blind. Bear in mind you're a lot slower than a GF3TI200 or GF-FX5200 let alone the old 8500LE.
