a "tweak guide" for Radeons

<A HREF="http://www.techspot.com/tweaks/radeon/index.shtml" target="_new"> Techspot </A> has a nice little guide on how to tweak Radeon graphics cards. All the information will be redundant to experienced users, but it should be a good guide for people just getting into grahphics cards, or complete n00bs :) They also talk a little on the different types of filters, and what all the new marketing terms mean (W buffer, z compression and such). They also mention which options may cause stability problems, or what ones can be disabled to help the system.

  1. i have a ati radeon 9600 pro

    i downloaded this utility you mentioned... and installed it.

    On the overclocking page..it says core clock speed is 398.25

    and the memory is 275

    but i thought the memory spec was supposed to be 500
    (and memory was rated at 600)

    what am i missing here?


    Also..now this utility is installed..my system locked up on the 3dmark 2001 SE test (where is scrolls across a sea with a huge sun in middle) for the first time ever (not sure if related).
  2. Nice guide, now how do we get something like this into the FAQ????

    The loving are the daring!
  3. The technical FAQ isn't up yet, we have a buyers' guide. Things like this will have place in the technical FAQ

  4. Great !!!!!!!!!
    Keep up the good work on the guides!!!
    I appreciated the effort and have based potential buying decisions on the information.

  5. 275MHz is 550, so that's half way between 500 and 600.
