If only it was released earlier, it would have been a pretty good contender.

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

"The Qimonda memory is under clocked 50MHz to 950MHz, probably because of stability issues from heat, since they have no cooling at all save for the faint airflow from the fan."

The memory chips are rated to run 1 GHz with no exterior cooling. :)


Good looking little card though!

Yeah they should, I didn't check the voltage that the card gave them but around 1GHz they weren't stable. That or they were low binned

That's definitely possible. I'd bet that the timings are exactly to spec and it makes them a bit unstable at their normal speeds.
