Gigabyte call on Zalman - Radeon X1950PRO vs. GeForce 7900GS

By: Shawn Baker | NVIDIA GeForce GPU in Video Cards | Posted: Nov 28, 2006 5:00 am



Using ATI Tool, it was time to see what both Gigabyte graphics cards were capable of doing when it came to Overclocking.


With a default core and memory speed of 575/1380MHz DDR on the Radeon X1950PRO, we got a nice bump on the core to 654MHz but the memory only jumped to 1420MHz DDR.


The GeForce 7900GS on the other hand with its default clock speed of 525/1440MHz DDR got a healthy bump on both the core and memory. The core achieved a healthy 682MHz and the memory achieved an even healthier 1790MHz DDR which takes the speed well above what the Radeon X1950PRO is offering when we start talking about overclocking.



While we saw the GeForce 7900GS lag behind slightly in our default run, when it came to overclocking the huge jump that was achieved from the 7900GS propelled it well and truly into the lead.



We again see the huge overclock from the 7900GS make it stand out from the pack.



Finally we leave with PREY and while the Radeon X1950PRO gave us a weird result with a slight drop, the GeForce 7900GS continues to show its dominance when we overclocked the cards.
