Alex "Sharky" Ross heeft nu wel een werkende voodoo3 3500 gehad, eerst had ie er problemen mee. Hij heeft gelijk maar geprobeerd om hem te overklokken. Dat ging met zijn model bijzonder goed, maar dat zal niet bij elke 3500 zo zijn. Hier staat de rest.
But just how much does raising the Voodoo3's clock speed bar 'do' for the hardcore tweaking freak in the real world? Well as we said earlier, we've been able to overclock our Voodoo3 3500 in excess of 3dfx's 'suggested' 183MHz clock speed. We went as high as 220MHz (at 225MHz the board still ran but occasionally crashed so we thought it best to put a stop to such behavior) and ran some benchmarks for you to get an idea of the real 'worth' (or not as the case maybe) in overclocking the Voodoo3. Bear in mind that although there's a lot more to gaining higher framer rates than just raising the clock speeds. Some games might well be fill rate limited and the increased memory bandwidth could indeed help and as the scores in Quake 2 show the benefits are still minimal.
