3D Spotlight heeft een review gemaakt van deze 32MB TNT2 kaart. Hier heb je een stukkie over de overklokbaarheid van de kaart:

Overclocking the ELSA ERAZOR III was fairly easy for me compared to other reviews of the board I have seen. I promptly added a Radio Shack 486 to the surface of the heatsink before delving deep into the realms of overclocking.

I was surprised to see that ELSA has the memory default clock set to 140MHz. It was probably made that way so they could yield a higher quantity of boards. For overclocking, this particular board clocked to 166MHz for the core stable, and 163MHz for the memory stable. Yes, yes… I do know that this doesn’t follow the ratio that NVIDIA recommends, but with overclocking you take whatever you can get. Another aspect for tweaking the board was setting the memory timings lower. As far as I know most of the reviews I have seen do not cover this. The ERAZOR III comes with some very popular RAM, Samsung G7. I used a popular overclocking and tweaking program called TNTclk.

After looking at the memory timings I was surprised to see the timing between the read and write state was set to 0. This means that the full potential of every megahertz was being utilized in this particular part of the memory.

After experimenting I found that setting the wait state from read to precharge to 0 gave me about a 1.5% to 2% increase in performance without visual distortion. Why should I care about 1.5% to 2% increase you say? Well, overclocking the TNT2 yields very little performance increases. The range in overclocking the board from its standard clock settings to 166/163 increased overall performance roughly 8% to 9%. While not a big increase, it does improve upon the fill rate at higher resolutions.
