Random question: What were memory temps like? The 7950 GT cooler's I've seen include pads for the memory, I'd be worried about overheating with the Inno3D solution.
Artifacting is usually a problem when memory overheats - the card was perfectly fine to be honest. The DRAMs were warm to the touch at best (or worst) - many 7900 GT cards had the memory running without heatsinks in excess of 1500MHz, so I don't personally see it as much of a problem. Memory heatsinks will of course help you over time but this seemed to cope well through a stress test.
Iss it just me, or does it appear that Inno3D (for some reason unbeknowenst to man), has drilled out two holes on the PCB just a little shy of the reference mounting holes, and done so on the cooler too?
No it's not just you, they probably just wanted the cooler to cover the entire core
Hmmm it's kind of wierd that few blocks get better results on Nvidia than Ati everytime. Wonder if its all about the HW that they use...
Not sure I follow???
I'm lost too
Looks like a good card, but for £60 over the 1950Pro it doesn't seem worth it when the performance looks to be so close.
/me wishes the 1950 pro's would make an appearance
Pretty good, as they say.
