Sapphire X1950 Pro Dual



Overclocking on the nVidia cards was performed using Rivatuner. Overclocking on the ATI card was performed using the built-in "Overdrive" facility in the ATI catalyst drivers.

The Sapphire X1950 Pro Dual actually didn't doo too bad for a dual GPU configuration, with a core overclock of around 47MHz (8%) and a memory overclock of 104Mhz (14%).

Anything over the mentioned settings and the overclock failed. Not too bad although I think this is probably due to the limits of the dual GPU configuration.

3DMark06 Overclocked

To test the overclock I ran 3DMark06 test. This allows you to see how the overclock affected performance.

An increase of only 23 marks over the stock settings means that the small overclock did not do too much to affect performance.

Ye which was strange as gaming it didn't do too badly. 3DMark I always take with a pinch of salt but it is a bit disappointingQuote

Sapphire have said that the retail version comes with 3DMark06 and more importantly 4 DVI outputs for a 4 monitor setup.

Pretty cool.Quote
