Radeon 9800 Pro GPU's are supposed to have R350 cores, but some have a R360 core, i.e. XT core. The only 100% way to tell is to take your heatsink from your GPU, get some Vodka or other alcoholic based cleaning substance and remove the thermal paste and have a look.

Or you can check your card here.
