XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition - G92 Performance

Overclocking

Overclocking

Overclocking on the earlier nVidia cards was performed using Rivatuner Release 2. Overclocking on the HD 2900 XT was performed using the AMD GPU Overclocking Tool. For the XFX 8800 GT, I used nTune's GPU overclocking facility as RivaTuner's release client does not yet support the 8800 GT as far as I am aware.

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 I saw:

overclock graph

A none too shabby 57MHz on the core clock and a fairly standard 50MHz clock on the memory saw the XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition shoot up to 732/2000. Not a huge overclock, but bear in mind that the card is clocked very high out of the factory anyway.

3dmark06 overclocked

Achieving a quite superb 3DMark06 score of 13126, the overclocking seems to be fairly worth your while. However, please note that this may void the excellent XFX warranty.

Again, I think an aftermarket cooler could put this card right up there in terms of core clocks.

Nice review........that's one of the cards I'm currently looking at getting......

One small question for you all though, with those 2 sets of mounting holes around the core, what type of GPU water blocks will fit w/wo adapter plates/fittings????? Just wondering if my current Swiftech MCW60 will fit without having to get any sort of adapters.Quote
