Overclocking the Asus EN8800GTS

For our next set of performance metrics, we spent a little time overclocking the Asus EN8800GTS using the clock frequency slider available within NVIDIA's Forceware drivers, under the "Performance" menu after installing the nTune performance application.

(Fast 3D Video Card) + Overclocking = Even Faster Card

To find each card's peak core and memory frequencies, we slowly raised their respective sliders until we begun to see visual artifacts on-screen while running a game or benchmark, or until our test system was no longer stable.

When all was said and done, we were able to take the Asus EN8800GTS up from its default GPU core and memory frequencies of 513MHz / 1584MHz. all the way up to 648MHz / 1880MHz, increases of 135MHz and 296MHz (DDR), respectively.

While we had the card overclocked, we re-ran a couple of benchmarks at 1600x1200 to show you all just how performance had increased. As you can see, the performance increases were quite significant. They allowed the Asus EN8800GTS to pull ahead of the XFX card by a few FPS in both tests. It wasn't quite enough of a boost to catch the more powerful 8800 GTX, but who cares.  Free performance is free performance.
