Yeah, the Leadtek 6800... my mate just got one from the place i'm getting it from. Unlocked the 16 pipelines and vertex shader in a snap and is getting near 12,000 in '03 (Athlon-M 2500 @ 2.2Ghz, 512MB Ram, etc). Price/Performance ratio is fantastic for £175. Only downer is 128MB of memory, but with a 400/900 overclock, i think i can handle. 2.5Ghz and 1GB should bring me well into the 12,000 category.
The 71.24A VXGs didn't make a difference for me. hmmm. oh well. It could be heat throttling, so I'll try lower core speeds later. Too sleepy right now. In any case, good job, CC. I'm still perplexed as to how your card scores higher when I have about a 20mhz higher core and 80mhz higher memory. Could you include a pic of cpuz (or something similar) in the screenshot? 3dmark is gpu intensive, but it's nice to know what the cpu is running at.
I flashed the bios to run at ultra speeds. You need to have the same memory speed for 2d/3d, but the core speeds can be different. It's just one of those things.
I only crank it to 437/1210 for benching. 400/1100 is way plenty for now.
I don't usually OC the cpu either, since i get plenty of speed as it is. At least I know I can push it later.
