GeForce 9800 GX2 Overclocked and Tested - Test System Setup and PT Boats: Knights of the Sea

We tested NVIDIA's GeForce 9800 GX2 at stock settings - we are back testing at overclock speeds to see what it can do!

Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3GHz (333MHz x 9)

What we'll be doing is comparing the overclocked results against the stock standard results that we got the other day with our test bed CPU running at the standard 3GHz which we use for regular VGA testing.

 

Let's not delay and just get stuck straight into it!

 

PT Boats: Knights of the Sea

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Benchmark Demo

PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is a naval action simulator that places gamers in charge of a mosquito fleet of the Allied Forces, Russia or Germany during the height of World War II.

 

Using the latest Direct X 10 technology PT Boards - Knights of the Sea manages to apply a lot of stress to the components of today which in turn gives us quite an intensive benchmark.

 

 

 

Straight away we can see the significant gains in the minimum and average under PT Boats. At the highest resolution we can see that we're able to crack that crucial 30FPS minimum.
