6 mixed video cards - Overclocking

None of the retail cards in this review impress since they can't even reach a 15% overclock on either core or memory.

Since Gainward already supplies a card with higher clock frequencies than nVidia's reference design you can't clock much higher. Fact is that their Enhanced Mode touches the limit.

What impresses most is instead the Radeon 9600 XT. How about a core on 625 Mhz? This is probably the first time we've been able to run a core in sync with a DDR-memory's effective clock frequency (which we did by the way mostly for fun just to see if there was to give any extra performance, but there was none). AIW 9600 Pro also succeed with a very good core-overclock but the memory isn't ready for more than it's standard frequencies.

Otherwise, we get pretty good results with the Albatron GeForce FX 5600 Ultra and Albatron GeForce FX 5900 PV. Their 5900 Turbo doesn't do as well though.

Until further you will just have to be satisfied with the percentage figures since our time limits have forced us to focus on other things.
