Overclocking

 

Our next step on the list is overclocking - we fired up our favorite clocking tool ATI Tool and got things under way.

 

We were able to increase the default clock speeds from 500MHz / 1200MHz DDR to 610MHz / 1350MHz DDR which is quite impressive.

 

Let's go ahead and see what type of difference this makes to the overall performance in just a sample of tests.

 

 

With a decent overclock like we achieved you would expect a nice performance gain and you can clearly see one here.

 

 

PREY also sees a very nice performance jump with the overclocked card which may well mean a playable gaming experience at resolutions above 1280 x 1024.

 

 

 

While we don't see any difference at the minimum FPS when we move to the average again we can see that a performance gain is clearly seen.
