XFX 8800 Ultra "Extreme" Edition

Overclocking

Overclocking

Overclocking on the nVidia cards was performed using Rivatuner Release 2. Overclocking on the HD 2900 XT was performed using the AMD GPU Overclocking Tool.

A test run of 3DMark06 was performed after the overclock to verify stability and also if the OC was worth the time.

Note that no hard or soft mods were performed on the card apart from setting the higher clocks.

Results

Here's what happened when I started tinkering with clock speeds...

overclocking

The highly factory-overclocked XFX Extreme Edition 8800 Ultra didn't manage to get as high a clock as the other cards here. This is bound to be because XFX are already stretching this card to its limits.

3dmark06 overclocked

A smallish improvement in 3DMark scores shows that the overclocking did have an effect, but not as large as we have seen previously.

Again, as previously stated in other reviews, the cooler hardly ramps up even during heavy overclocking which is always a good bonus.
