Venator schrijft dat ze bij HotHardware Abit's grafische paradepaardje, de Abit Siluro GeForce2 GTS 64MB, stevig onder handen hebben genomen. Het overclocken van deze kaart ging aardig plezierig, het geheugen naar 405MHz en de core richting de 235MHz vormde voor het geteste exemplaar geen probleem. Ondanks het feit dat er naast goede overclock resultaten niks bijzonders aan de kaart is mocht kreeg de kaart toch een negen van de reviewer:
We were floored to see that the Siluro GF256 GTS, could handle a clock speed of 405MHz. DDR on the memory interface. Again, the Hyundai chips that are on this board are rated at 166MHz. SDR and 333MHz. DDR. At 405MHz., we are talking about a 202.5 MHz. SDR clock speed and that is a lot of guard band that is built into these SDRAM chips. Furthermore, as we all know by now, the GeForce product line has always suffered from lack of sufficient memory bandwidth. As a result, this speed boost should prove very performance enhancing.
Finally, at these clock speeds, 235MHz. Core and 405MHz. Memory, the card was completely stable and we saw no visual artifacts. This may or may not be true for all Siluro cards. As you know, this is not an exact science. However, the likelihood is good that you will experience the same kind of results. Also, we were able to over-clock the memory to 420MHz. (the max end of the slider) and the card would run through a round of benchmarks fine. However, after extended testing at this speed, the card would seem to reset itself (on the fly mind you) to a much lower clock speed and the benchmarks would actually run quite slowly. We are not sure if there is some sort of "protection" mechanism built into the card but we have asked Abit to look into this and we will report back to you.
