Got bored of looking at the unopened box that ATI sent me, so I decided to actually throw the 8500 into something. Looking at my machines, I decided to see if I could break some sort of record. Well I ended up putting the 8500 in my server which has dual P2-450 Xeons. I also ended up getting the highest 3DM2k1 score in the world for machines with CPUs up to 475mhz on my first run I did no tweaking at all other than eventually jacking up the core/memory to 302/302 to get this score. Considering how CPU limited this card must be, I decided to not try for faster speeds. Not too shabby of a score I'd say, especially considering that's roughly the same score I got in my Athlon 1400 box back when it was running a GF2GTS.
