    Sounds like an interesting card, I particularly like the sound of green mode. It bugs the bejesus out of me to think how much juice my GPU is sucking down and not using when I am surfing the web, watching videos e.t.c. (well thats assuming green mode actually makes a significant dent in the cards draw).

    Hope you have one of these cards winging its way to your labs for testing, would love to see the figures on it in all 3 modes, and the usability of green.

    ditto - would be interested to hear more, including power savings to be made in green mode and framerates in all modes.

    also, where do you set the speed? In software? Can't see a physical button on the back of the card...

    Cards go to 2d speeds on desktop and such, with clock speed of around 100Mhz or so with 300Mhz memory
