VIDEOCARD OVERCLOCKING


As with many X1950 PRO videocards, this card was essentially impossible to overclock. Even 1Mhz over stock had the card freezing immediately and only a hard reboot would have the videocard working again. Due to this problem, there will be no videocard overclocking results in the benchmarking.


On a positive note, HIS has overlocked this videocard through the BIOS by a large margin right out of the box so essentially they did the hard work for you. Too bad we can't push it any further.

PCI Express Videocards Benchmarked Against:



- SAPPHIRE X1300XT
- SAPPHIRE ULT. X1600PRO
- SAPPHIRE ULT. X1650PRO
- SAPPHIRE X1900XTX
- ATI AIW X1800XL


The programs are:


3DMark2001SE v330 Professional (DX8 Synthetic Benchmark)
GLexcess v1.2V (OpenGL Synthetic Benchmark)
Aquamark Preset Benchmark
Doom 3 High Quality Benchmark
3DMark 2005 Professional
3DMark 2006 Professional (New!)


Please keep in mind that results obtained were with driver defaults for testing continuity and are stock configured for image quality rather than speed. With a little driver tweaking, results much higher than seen obtained here could easily be managed.


Testing Methodology


Throughout the testing of this videocard, I will be showing you how this card performed on the system mentioned above using the following programs at 1024x768 and 1280x1024 resolutions at ATI driver defaults (vsync disabled) and also with 6X Antialiasing and 16x Anisotropic Filtering enabled.


All other cards were only tested with no quality settings and only 4X AA enabled in the high quality tests.


Both testing situations will be benchmarked with stock and overclocked settings initialized separately.
