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.
It is hard to evaluate the efficiency of extreme overclocking in this test. GeForce FX 5950 Ultra sped up more, but never reached the level of RADEON 9800 XT. RADEON was reluctant to get faster even after our volt-modding.

Some overclockers get so carried away by the competition with their fellows trying to get a higher score in this benchmark. If you are one of them, compare your results to ours:
The modded cards are faster than the non-modded cards with overclocked working frequencies. The RADEON and the GeForce got a similar performance gain, and the first remained the leader.
