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.
Volt-modification of the graphics cards again provides a negligible performance gain: RADEON 9800 XT adds up 9fps at best, and GeForce FX 5950 Ultra – 11fps.
The effect from overclocking is even less visible in the modes with FSAA and AF. Overdrive is practically useless.
