Just warrning Sapphires fans are real shit I now for 2 cases when they just died without any warning.
One was OK but other destroyed motherboard on wich she was.Becouse heat she made power wariations strong enough to destroy it.
Both is equaly important.To rise clock on only on one is useles.You just made bootleneck on
other.My recomendation for MEM is up to 25-30MHZ without aditional coolers (for 200-300MHz ram).
I even take off case side (just to be shure).As fot the core it depends on chip quality.
Yes its true,256Mb isn`t bether.Adleast in mainstreem class.
Allmoust allways they put cheaper (slower) VRAM.
In my expirience usualy 128 versions are bether then same 256Mb.
So by my opinion 256 is just show off (atleast for 9500,9600,9800).
Can you mesure performance of your card with...
You are right.Few extra FPS isn`t worth to turn your card into still-smoking-pile-of-silicon.
This is data for my card:
[ AGP 8x: GeCube Radeon 9600 ]
Graphics Processor Properties:
Video Adapter GeCube Radeon 9600
I have seen that atitool can change memory timings.
I`m interested how its done (what is changed: drivers,bios,registry)?
Is it dangerous,and how much is possible to gain in performance with mem tweeking.
So is it worth a risk?
Jes I had erors in Atitool on cloch higher then 430,but in Mark03 it was OK up to 455.
I haven`t seen any artifects.
Do you have any expiriance with mem latencies tweeking?
How much is possible to gain in performance?
Hi just to ask for opinion.I both GeCube 9600 pro and default clock is 400/203.
I used atitool and it found that max core/mem is 432/230.After that I got bunch of dots on the cube.
But i raised clock to 450 and had couple of runs with Mark03 without artifacts or similar.
Thanks for the advice,but I have allready ordered GeCube 9600pro.
Found it cheep - 75euros.
I know only that GPU works on 400 and ram on 300 Mhz.
As for other specs,I`ll just wait and see.
Maybe its possible to find refurb 9800pro,but not in Bosnia.
Here 9800pro is still exotic and...
Omega and RadLinker
Sorry I havent right equipment to test it.
But I have newer version of RadLinker,more tweks are built in.
If you want I`l mail it to you.Or go to Omegadrivers.net and maybe you can find even newer version.
Try to play a bit with profiles.It is possible to make...
Just for the record 3Dmark can lie.
Couple times in 03 I got 6650 marks.AND that is impossible for my card.
It can`t even run all the tests.Mark05 won`t even start (DX 8.1 commpatible)
That happened only if i set 3 repeats for all tests.With other sethings default.
The mistake was...
I did :) I use them for couple months (7-8).Diferent versions offcourse.
My 3 frends allso use them on atlantis 9600pro, asus 9600xt,sapphire 9600xt.
Right now it is 2.5.97a and they are made on Catalyst 4.12
I had slight jump of performance of about 100 3D marks in 3DMark03 (I can`t...
Can anybody tell me where to find some test results for GeCube 9600PRO and 9600xt?
Or mail it to me?
I intend to buy one of them but can`t find anything to help me to decide which one
Has anybody tried Omega drivers?
My friend had ASUS 9600xt,and he had problems with it until he installed them.
I.E. he barely could play MOH:Pacific at 800x600 16bit!!!!
You can owerclock with them,and they have softmode included.
As you can see they work fine with older...
