GDDR-3 Memory: GeForce FX 5700 Ultra

Test Setup

We tested the new GDDR-3 version of the GeForce FX 5700 Ultra once at its default clockspeed and then tried to determine the overclocking potential of the card. For reference, we included the "old" GDDR-2 version of the same card, a GeForce FX 5900 SE and ATi’s Radeon 9600XT.

Since the latencies of GDDR-2 and GDDR-3 memory modules are practically identical, we decided against conducting tests with both cards running at the same memory frequency.
