Nvidia GeForce 8000 series Shader Clock Overclocking Guide

Posted on Tuesday, September 25 2007 @ 03:20:19 CEST by

Today we are going to provide you with a basic step-by-step guide on how to overclock the shader clock of a GeForce 8000 series graphics card. The GeForce 8600 GT and 8800 GTS have been selected to be the test subjects. In the past we have found that simple GPU and memory tweaks can help these graphics cards produce around 20% more performance. So can overclocking the shader clock independently help improve performance even more?

Although we have only briefly tested the effects of shader clock overclocking, I think that it is quite clear that increasing the shader clock speed really has a limited impact on performance. This is a shame, though with word of the ability to asynchronously overclock the shader clock sure to spread, I thought you may be interested to see the effects regardless of how insignificant their impact may have been. When it comes to overclocking the best gains can still be seen by increasing the core clock and then the memory. For those that want to make every last frame count shader overclocking is just another way of getting a tiny bit more at no cost.
