Steve, i used to use Rage3d Tweak before. My LELELE card reads just like yours on the core and memory. The regular/retail 8500 and some other "LE" cards have much higher memory clockspeeds. That's why you're getting much better 3dmark score with that. yes...... that memory chip pic you posted looks exactly like my low performance 5.5 ns Hyundai chip... which is severely crippled for the card..
