NordicHardware, being who they are, couldn't resist a little fun with a 2900XT and some LN. They have a screenshot of the core @ 1211MHz, and the memory @ 999MHz running a calculated 777 GFlops. That was the best they managed because the card got too hot! That's right, not even LN cooling can push this card to it's maximum frequency.
