Overclocking: ASUS EN8800GTX/HTDP/768M
In our final segment, we spent a few moments tweaking the ASUS EN8800GTX to see what added power was hiding under the hood. In the end, our experience wasn't too bad.
Starting out with a core speed of 576MHz, we manage to add 49MHz, topping out at a stable 625MHz. With the card's GDDR3 memory, we also had good luck, managing to raise the speed from a default of 1800MHz DDR up 100MHz to 1900MHz DDR. Once the peak stable speeds were determined, we ran another round of F.E.A.R at both resolutions to see what additional performance we could gain. At 1600x1200, we added 6 FPS while tacking on 7 FPS at 1280x1024. To truly enjoy the full benefits of our efforts, higher resolutions and a more powerful CPU are surely going to help unlock the full potential of the ASUS EN8800GTX, but these overclocks did result in a minimum boost of 8%.
