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.
This flight simulator once again proves that there is not much benefit from extreme overclocking: you get 1-2fps at best. On the other hand, this game is hardly an adequate benchmark.
We see the same picture in the “hard” modes. If you are a hardcore pilot, don’t go for overclocking otherwise you will be really disappointed.
