De volgelingen van Thresh hebben een Maxi Gamer Xentor 32 onder vuur genomen. Ook over deze Ultra TNT2 kaart (default 175/183) weer een stukje over de overklokbaarheid:
Starting out, we raised the core speed to 190MHz (+ 15MHz) and the memory to 200MHz (+17MHz), since 190/200 are nice round numbers to try to hit. Starting up some benchmarks results in visual artifacts, leading to an eventual freeze. Hmm. After the reboot, we bumped the clocks a little bit lower to 185/195, and resumed the benchmarking. This time, things were going smoothly through the first 3Dmark 99 benchmark, without any visual degradation. However, around the middle of the second test, we got another freeze and lockup.
The eventual realization through testing was that our particular Maxi Xentor 32 would not overclock past 175/200. Remember, this will vary from case to case, at least with the core speed, as cores may be different in their overclockability due in part to the yield of the chips they come from. The RAM clock, on the other hand, is probably pretty indicative, since 5.5ns rated RAM is going to be 5.5ns rated RAM, regardless of yield.
