XFX 8800 GTS 320mb Fatal1ty 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:

overclock graph

Here we can tell XFX really are taking the GPU to it's limits with a slightly lower overclock than we are used to seeing on an XFX card. Having said that we still managed 701MHz core and 2150MHz memory, not too shabby!

3dmark06 overclocked

The run of 3DMark06 shows that although the overclock was fairly small, it still gave us a 662 raise in 3DMarks.

Note that the fan still hardly ramped up during overclocking (I didn't enable this feature in RivaTuner). With some aftermarket cooling like a water-block I think this card could push even more...of course this would void that rather nice XFX warranty!

Nice review man, im still reading it and thought i should post this.

I just won this card on bjorn3d.com, so i am totally excited for it. Would this 320mb version work with my existing 640mb in SLI?Quote

It would work perfect, as long as you have the card with the smallest amount of memory in the primary slot.

That is what I found to make it work without a BSOD.
