Do any of you predict the x800 SE or the X800 Pro to be a good
overclocker ?
Hoping to give Powerstrip a good exercise. Too bad the Softmods will
be useless with the X800 series. Ati learned it's lesson. Wonder if
the 6800 is hardware disabled in the same manner...

6800 uses a different gpu than 6800ultra. So much for overclockin :(

Both babies will provide more than enough FPS at default speed for at least
a year. Why the hell overclock them ?

Probably right. Just if you couldn't softmod em, thought you could
atleast overclock em. But as you said, probably won't make a real
diff.

I was thinking something along those lines, but at the end of the day
there is no such thing as too much processing power.
