Ik dacht dat ze bij Firingsquad al lang een review van de Dynamite TNT2 Ultra gepost hadden. Hmm, dat bleek dus een pre-production model te zijn. In de nieuwe review hebben ze wat lopen mixen met de Core en Memory clock settings, en komen ze tot interessante conclusies:
We did run into an interesting phenomena, though. We ran the card with its default core speed of 175 and an overclocked memory speed of 230. We found that at 16-bit, this configuration does absolutely nothing in terms of performance. Even at 1280x1024 in 16-bit, the gain was very small. However, the same configuration gives quite a boost at 32-bit, but only for resolutions of 1024x768 and greater. 800x600 in 32-bit got a very small gain.
Then, we tried overclocking the core speed but leaving the memory speed alone. The configuration we ended up with was 190 core and 200 memory. The gains we saw here were small across the board, for low and high resolutions, and for 16 and 32 bit color depths. What did we learn from all this? Well, at higher resolutions and higher color depths, it is very important to have a fast RAM bus to move all the data back and forth. Having the RAM speed overclocked yielded an approximate 15% increase in performance alone when we dealt with 1280x1024 in 32-bit color. The core speed is important, too, but having a higher core speed requires that you couple with it a high memory speed.
