ASUS GeForce EN7950GT Graphics Card

Using ATI Tool it was time to see what the ASUS GeForce 7950 was capable of doing when it came to overclocking.


With a default core and memory speed of 550MHz and 1400MHz DDR on the ASUS 7950GT, we got a nice bump on the core to 614MHz and the memory jumped to 1640MHz DDR.


Have a quick look at the review we did on the XFX 7950GT we could only achieve a maximum speed of 570MHz on the core and 1460MHz DDR on the memory. It would seem that the move to silent cooling on XFXs part has hindered the overclock quite severely but that comes with the inclusion of quieter computing.


Let's see what our overclock equates to in the benchmark numbers.



While the overclock isn't super high, in 3DMark06 we can clearly see it helping with a nice bump in overall score.



Lost Coast paints a similar picture with it again seeing a nice bump in performance.



Finally we leave on PREY which actually doesn't see any real advantage with the overclock.
