Powercolor X1900XT 512mb

Overclocking Results

Overclocking

To overclocking this card I used the ATI Catalyst Control Centre "overdrive" facility. I achieved a very reasonable overclock on stock volts just using the ATI software. I tested this using 3DMark06 for stability.

Here are the results:

This produced an improved 3DMark06 score. I have briefly run through a few games and this certainly improves the FPS a little in some of them, but the settings remain the same as most are at the very top.

This represents amazing value moving past the clocks of the X1900XTX. With a little added voltage or perhaps a BIOS flash to an XTX. People have been known to get some amazing overclocking results with just a little extra voltage.

Nah not depressed.

3 reasons:

1: nVidia's drivers are better

2: My GTX doesn't sound like its about to take off

3: I know I'll change my card when DX10 cards come out



Nice card tho

LOL good point. The X1K is quite loud, but christ ever stick your hand back there? Pushes at least 60 CFM at 100% if not more.

Yeah but the nvidea cooling fan has a great throughput with none of the sound. the cooler on the GTX is far superior IMO
