In this article we are going to tell you about volt-modding techniques for the today’s top graphics accelerators based on NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra and ATI RADEON 9800 XT. Among the benchmarks results you will find the performance numbers for the nominal frequencies, overdrive mode (for ATI RADEON 9800 XT), during regular overclocking and after extreme volt-modding of the voltage regulators according to our unique methodology.
The modification of the GeForce FX 5950 Ultra provides a certain performance boost in this game, while the extreme-overclocking of the RADEON 9800 XT results in nothing.
The same is true for the modes with FSAA and anisotropic filtering. If you own a RADEON 9800 XT and want to speed it up, use traditional overclocking, without any volt-modding. GeForce FX 5950 Ultra also gains little from the modification, it is not worth the trouble.
