Hashimoto is still being judged by the masses

Default How do i know a 9500 pro is not a 9500

I was just wondering, how do you know that your card is actually a 9500 pro and not a 9500?
Do you look at the type of memory on it? Do you looks at the clockspeeds when you install it? How would someone know it's not really an overclocked 9500? Can you use some program to run it at default memory/clock speed?

Thx in advance.

d@rker is still being judged by the masses


the memory layout ,i think :

2 bga on top & 2 on right side of gpu - 9500 128mb
4 bga on top of gpu = 9500 pro 128mb

i don't know if ati changed this after the 9500-->9700 mod hit the web ...
the gpu/mem frequencies are the same for both models :

275mhz gpu & 270mhz(540mhz) mem

the only difference between them is a 128mbit mem bus with 8 pixel pipelines for the 9500 PRO and a 256mbit mem bus with 4 pixel pipelines for the 9500.

you can use rivatuner to see what kind of mem bus the card has ...
