FX 9600GT Alpha Dog Edition ReviewPosted on 2008-03-28 13:56:51 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Pushing for additional performance on a heavily overclocked manufacturer released video card is often akin to pulling a chicken's teeth. It just does not happen because the card's performance is already maxed out. With that in mind, I began leaning on the card and achieved a core clock of 761MHz, a boost of 21 MHz while gaining an additional 69 ticks on the memory. Both substantial gains for a mid range, already overclocked video card. The huge gains over stock speeds are just not there because the card's capabilities fall within the overclocked range the card is already running in. A performance increase is still a performance increase, no matter how you look at it.
