stream processers can be overclocked if xfx's geforce 8800 gts320mb xxx is anything to go by.
they increased their stream units from 1.2ghz to 1.5ghz. a 25% increase is pretty good and going by the overclockability of 8800s i reckon someone interested could go further. but how?
in an article by custompc featuring said graphics card they use NiBiTor. to verify that the card is indeed running with faster stream units but can u change the clock of the stream units in their safely too?
wouldnt want to fry my pixel pushing bitch.
ok darkstar782 i dont have the knowledge to say your wrong i just wonder coz my card reads 600/900 in ati tool, the only overclocking tool i have managed to use in vista32, and nibitor reads the bios settings not actual current speeds at 513/792 and 1188 for stream. how do u check your overclock has actualy pushed your streams up to?
as you said darkstar the shaders increase too.
with my 600/900 oc my shaders are sitting at 1404. the gtx sits at 1500. does this mean i have another 1000 potential headroom?
would i need my clocks to hit 666/900 to aquire 1500 stream?
is that safe with standard cooling?
