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 610MHz / 2000MHz DDR to 660MHz / 2120MHz DDR which is quite impressive considering the card is already overclocked. That puts its core speed well ahead of the 8800 Ultra reference card at 612MHz but the memory is running a little slower.

 

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

 

 

The overclock continues to give us a performance bump breaking 12k without much effort at all.

 

 

Prey also moves higher up in the food chain to 153.7.

 

 

 

Finally we leave with COH getting another increase in the minimum FPS which helps carry over to the average.
