Many of you must be interested in knowing how well
this Ultra TNT2 card can be overclocked.
the given Asus Tweak Utility to overclock the TNT2
Ultra. The Asus Tweak Utility allows you to overclock
the core/memory to a maximum of 160/220MHz. The default
setting is 150/183MHz.
a screenshot of the Asus Tweak Utility,
tests, the card was stable at 160/195MHz. Artifacts
would be shown on my desktop with any setting above
that. For your information, the memory chips
used was the EliteMT.
not get a kick increasing the TNT2 Ultra Core by a
mere 10MHz so I used Powerstrip :
After much experimentation,
I found that the 180/195MHz setting was most stable
for the card that I had. Any higher and artifacts would
start to appear in games. As always, luck plays an important
factor. In the world of overclocking, there are no guarantees.
Sometimes you get the juice, sometimes you don't.
For a stability test,
Final Reality was run overnight. It ran fine with the
heatsink and fan provided.
You could probably overclock
the chip core even more using better cooling but I doubt
you can do the same for the memory.
