Bills Workshop heeft een review van de Gigabyte GA-630, een videokaart met Voodoo Banshee. Ter vergelijking hebben ze ook benchmarks van de Diamond Monster Fusion en Creative 3D Blaster Banshee.
Er staat ook wat info in voor overklokkers:
You can see that the Gigabyte and Diamond cards were able to run at the maximum available memory clock setting of 133MHz.† The Gigabyte tolerated higher graphics clock settings, I believe due to its slightly different fan and heatsink design.† The Diamond card has a sharp looking fan sunk into heatsink, whereas the Gigabyte fan sits on top of the heatsink in a more traditional design.† The effect of the Diamond design is that there are almost no heat-radiating fins on the heatsink or around the fan.† Itís like a copy of the TennMax Lasagna design, except that the TennMax has an array of fine fins around the fan.† The bottom line is that I donít think the Diamond design cools the graphics chip as well.† However, you can see that the impact of the earlier graphics clock failure with the Diamond card is negligible Ė less than a 1% difference.
You may ask what is the impact of the fan? When the fan disconnected from power, the Gigabyte locked up at 117 instead of 123MHz graphics clock setting in 3DMark99.† So, it adds about 5% the to the graphics chip's clocking ability.† However, this adds only about 1% to the overall performance of the card.
