Onze kleine vriend Anand heeft een review op zijn site gemikt van Elsa's Erazor X2 GeForce DDR videokaart. Hieronder wat over zijn overklokbaarheid, die niet echt opgeilend schijnt te zijn:
Unlike their ERAZOR X drivers, the ERAZOR X2 drivers did not come with an overclocking utility which forced us to use Power Strip to attempt to overclock the card. As with all overclocking, the standard disclaimer, your mileage may vary, must be issued. In the case of the ERAZOR X2, you’re going to be hoping that your mileage does in fact vary as we were only able to increase the core clock speed of the GeForce to 130MHz from the 120MHz default setting.
While the chip was able to reach 135MHz core, the test system would lock up under Quake III Arena after a few loops of any demo. This indicates that the problem was most likely a heat related issue, adding a bit of thermal compound or a superior heatsink/fan could help achieve this speed.
At 130MHz, the performance gains are minimal. While this does increase the peak fill rate of the GeForce from 480 Mpixel/s to 520 Mpixel/s, it doesn’t make that big of a difference in real world gaming performance.
As we mentioned earlier the card featured 6ns DDR SGRAM memory manufactured by Infineon. The 6ns rating would ideally allow for clock speeds up to 166MHz, which when operating in DDR mode would produce an effective transfer rate equal to that of 333MHz SGRAM.
The 166MHz setting was the highest we were able to push the 6ns Infineon DDR SGRAM to which was pretty much expected. The performance improvement was noticeable but not tremendous but since it came without the sacrifice of stability you can consider it to be something for nothing.
