Here is a plot showing the performance of the Ultra/760XP in Enhanced Mode compared to that of a standard FX 5600 Ultra:
Note: the performance mode has to be specifically activated in the Gainward EXPERTool that you have to install first. If you don't use the tool and rely on the standard reference drivers, the card performs much like your average FX 5600 Ultra.
Conclusion: Gainward's Enhanced Mode hits another home run with the Ultra/760XP, which outperforms an average FX 5600 Ultra. Unlike other FX 5600 Ultra boards that can reach equally high clock speeds, this board has been guaranteed by Gainward to remain stable in Enhanced Mode. The fan is the same model as on the Pro/760XP - it runs faster, though, generating a humming sound when running in 3D. Once it reverts to 2D mode, its speed drops accordingly.
+ Guaranteed higher clock speeds with software overclocking
+ Display tools from Gainward
+ TV-in & -out
+ Video-editing software & DVD player software
+ IEEE 1394 FireWire PCI card + FireWire cable
- Fan is very audible in 3D mode
