I stumbled over a Radeon9100 on an online shop yesterday. (Sapphire radeon9100, 64MB)
I haven't heard of a 9100 model before so I got curious.
Some sources on the Net claims the 9100 just to be a new name for the old 8500, can anyone confirm this?
If it is the old 8500 GPU, is it clocked with the same frequency as the original 8500? Does it use the same memory path? Is it crippled in some way?
The card I found is suspiciously cheap, priced just a little less than a Radeon9000pro from the same manufacturer (Sapphire). I find this a little to cheap to be true, considering the prices of 8500-boards is way higher.
IF the 9100 is an uncrippled and untouched 8500, I will buy a piece ASAP
