460$ is quite a bit of money, what you could do if buy a 9700PRo for 280$ and a zalman heatpipe vga cooler for 30$ and overclock it yourself....you may not get those insane clockspeeds, but youll get a LOT more price/performance

WOW   Now that is a cool card  

Kinda pricy and I think for that much performance gain over the other competitors the money is not worth it, or atleast not to me.

UUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHH   That's strange. If it is faster like you say, then there's no need to wait for the R350 and just buy that card.

yup, from initial reports R350 should be an R300 clocked at 375/700, and this is clocked way higher than that,....though i think R350 will be either 350 or 400$

Yeah but the R350 will have 8 by 2 texture per pass so that makes it a bit faster. Also I seen some pages that the R350 will be 40% faster. There has been a lot of talk about specs in futuremark community so if you want to go there.

So what do you recomend to the SoulTaker?, wait for the r350, buy the OCSYSTEM Radeon 9700 pro or just a plain ol built or powered by ATI?

Oh and my sources are not from the Inquirir so if you think that's where I got them, well no couse those are just half true, half false speculations or even opinions.

If he needs a card right now that is a great card for AA and Aniso for gaming and is a pretty good deal then I would recommend a 9700 non pro and then oc it. If he has a bad case of needing to catch up with the joneses, then the OCSystems 9700Pro is effectively the fastest card we have seen so far.

But if he has patience he should wait for R350, see how it performs and see how the price compares to this Level III SE

Since I also read the r350 will be 40% faster and its coming sometime in april, I think i'll take your guys advice and wait and see what the benchmarks are on it before I blow $460+ on the lvl lll. Thanks for all your replys people.


I would be fine using my sapphire 9500 np if the softmod didn't give me tons of artifacts

Again guys, thanks for all the feedback

The speeds attained on a review sample may in fact translate to their production modded cards, which aren't simply overclocked their obviously volt modded etc. However, I'd be apprehensive to own a card, which is being pushed to it's absolute maximum. Unless their spec'ing memory faster then Samsung 2.8ns (doubt it) and merely overclocking A-cores from ATI, I'd be concerned about failure, and even artifacts when the dang thing heat's up to a certain level. I admire their making available a card of this caliber, although I think it's important to understand exactly what your getting yourself into. And to be honest, I'm not sure how long OCSsytems will be in business to back a warranty. I'd buy a Retail ATI 9700 Pro, and put my own fan and ramsinks on it. In this way you have full control over the the process, and can of course overclock the card prior to modding it, to ensure you've found a cherry picked example. If not, at least you can RMA or return it and ask for another until you find a primo overclocker, then attach ram-sinks, and HSF.
