Overclocking

 

When it came to overclocking we used the old faithful ATI Tool which has made its way into the heart of many enthusiast PC users who make use of an ATI graphics card. With a few clicks and a bit of waiting time you find the max core and memory speed.

 

The default X800GT speed is supposed to be 475MHz core and 1000MHz DDR memory but as we mentioned GeCube bumped it up to 500MHz core. We were able to increase the core to 570MHz which is a huge jump and the memory to 1058MHz which while isn't huge is still a nice little increase considering the Samsung GC20 is only rated for 1000MHz.

 

 

Once we began to overclock the X800GT the lead in 3DMark05 only became stronger thanks to the high core speed.

 

 

While the 6600GT did have the jump in Far Cry as soon as we start overclocking this bad boy was able to sneak ahead.
