Overclocking the 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition

 

Overclocking the 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition
Going beyond the stock settings...

Since the 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition is already overclocked out of the box, it is bound to have more headroom, right? Well, in typical HotHardware fashion, we set out to answer just that question. And the answer was "yes." Our sample did indeed have more overclocking headroom, as we were able to push the core to from 650 MHz to 720 MHz and the memory from 800 MHz to 920 MHz.

We were pretty happy with this overclock, but you should keep in mind that not all cards will overclock the same. In short, your mileage may vary.


 


You can look at the performance charts above to get an idea of how much better the 720 / 920 overclock performed. We thought the overclocked Half-Life 2: Episode 2 score at 1280x1024 4x AA / 8x AF / HDR was especially nice.
