Bij DemoNews hebben ze verder ook nog een review gepost van de AOpen 3D Navigator PA3020G TNT2 Ultra kaart. AOpen heeft het vrolijk voor elkaar gekregen om dit modelletje op 175/233MHz te klokken. De reviewer had blijkbaar minder succes:
As I said before, AOpen managed to overclock this card to 175/233Mhz, and get it stable there. They didn't mention if they had used any extra coolers or cooling tape (but I'm sure they used plenty of it). The card they used is the normal TNT2, 16Mb version. The card I have is the TNT2 Ultra 32Mb card with TV-out features and S-video, and is clocked at 183/150. So, how did my overclocking go? Here're the results from my overclockingresults:
Normal clock rate (150/183):
Quake2, res 640x480, colors 16-bit: 128,8 fps
Clock set on 160/190:
Quake2, res 640x480, colors 16-bit: 131,7 fps
I actually couldn't go any further than that because the machine started to hang too often. The AOpen TNT2 has a small but pretty effective cooler for the mainchip bit it seems as if the card is very sensitive for overclocking. I'm not sure of if the lockups depends on the hot air going out from the Athlon CPU or not but I anyway think that the card is a little bit too sensitive. So the overclocking had to stop.
