Here's something interesting. I re-flashed the card with the Asus 6970 BIOS (originally I used Sapphire) and the stock clock went from 880 to 890. The pixel fillrate increased slightly as well

So does the card run any faster? You have any benchmarking tools to test and post?

Not since the new BIOS which I only flashed this morning. I'm at work now but tonight I'll re-run all the tests I've posted here already for a comparison.

UPDATE: Ran Furmark again and no noticeable improvement so I'm not gonna bother with the others at stock clocks. Now to try OCing again.

UPDATE 2: 900/1400 stable so far

I love this card! Can't wait to get the time to start OCing now that Afterburner has voltage control.
