So there we have it, overclocking the ATI Radeon X1800XT and X1600XT. While the program we used isn't the most user friendly piece of software, it did exactly what we wanted it to do though we can't wait till the next version of ATI tool hits the net as you forget about just how annoying overclocking can be few MHz up, test, few more MHz up and tests again.
Considering we are running early reference samples of the ATI X1K cards here, we think that our overclocking results weren't too bad at all. ATI didn't even get a chance to place a sticker on our heatsink unlike a lot of the other samples we have seen.
We are looking forward to overclocking other X1K cards in the near future. We have another X1800XL full retail card coming to us and we should start to see full retail versions of the X1800XT over the coming weeks. We are going to be busy right up to the Christmas break with the 512MB GeForce GTX coming, X1800 master cards, X1800XT and more Crossfire motherboards hitting the market.
All our overclocking was done with the stock cooler in a room cooled at 20c thanks to a handy wall mount air conditioner. There does seem to be big potential for overclocking these cards so the coming weeks will give us a better insight of what people can expect from their new X1800 cards.
