Usually when I overclock an ATI card I do so using the Overdrive facility in ATI's drivers. This time however I was working with a beta driver that did not give me the option of overclocking. Instead I used ATI tool and set the Core and Memory clock from there. I did not tweak any voltages to keep the tests more fair.

The Results

Let's take a look and see how the Asus X1950 pro did:

An overclock of 59MHz on the core and 31Mhz on the memory. The GDDR3 is only rated at 700MHz so it was nice to see a small amount squeezed out of the card. The OC on the core was pretty impressive and I think with some slight voltage tweaks I could have easily gained more on the core overclock.

Testing the Overclock

Let's see how this affected our 3DMark06 score:

An excellent increase of 726 3DMarks is very nice for hardly any voltage adjustment at all. This is no doubt down to the excellent cooler on the card.

Definitely too late, unless you're on a tight budget. With the onslaught of nVidia's DX10 8800GTX's and GTS's, I don't see them selling very well, especially when nVidia starts slinging mid-range DX10 GT's into the market. (Is the 'GTS' supposed to be the 'GT' version? I'm a bit confused right now.)

No I have to say £133 for a GPU that performs that well is an absolute bargain. no diggedy no doubtQuote
