Overclocking EAX1950CROSSFIRE & EAX1950PRO
For our next set of performance metrics, we spent a little time overclocking the EAX1950CrossFire and EAX1950Pro to see what kind of extra horsepower could be found in each model.
With the EAX1950CrossFire, we managed to hit a peak GPU speed of 722MHz, a gain of 74MHz while the memory gave us an additional 100MHz. The EAX1950Pro, however, was less generous. The EAX1950Pro's GPU peaked at 614MHz, an increase of 33MHz, while the memory would not tolerate even the slightest of increases in our testing. Nonetheless, both cards registered measurable gains with their overclocked settings, with the EAX1950CrossFire adding 12 FPS at 1280x1024 and 19 FPS at 1600x1200. The EAX1950Pro was less exciting, adding an average of 3 FPS at both resolutions.
