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.
Overclocking is useless for strategy brains and for C&C admirers in particular. You only get as much as 1fps in 1600x1200 on the modded GeForce FX 5950 Ultra.
The hard operational modes were more favorable to overclocking, but the performance gains are too small for me to recommend you going for extreme overclocking and running the risk of damaging your graphics card.
