    AMD Radeon HD 2900 XT overclocking results

    Hi everyone,

    Since AMD's Radeon HD 2900 XT launch is coming up I thought it would be proper to start a thread for overclocking results of this card. I currently have one card to play with but since the NDA is still up, I won't post any results yet.



    I'll be posting info and numbers when it's possible. I know Kinc also has the card since we met in Tunis so some results should be coming from there also

    ---

    Update 3/5/2007:



    techPowerUp! has AMD GPU Clock Tool available for download which can change R600 2D/3D clocks and lets you monitor temperatures of the card. It also works on RV610, RV630 and all previous products.

    Awesome, can't wait to see these results, especially from someone high up in the game. I hope these results are going to what the end user can except from a retail purchased card however. Cherry picked core and volt mods suck for everyday results.

    I'm really liking this card from an engineering standpoint according to everything I've heard but I'm wondering how good the software drivers are. I want to use Linux as well as Windows and generally Nvidia has had better Linux drivers. If the drivers are good I would love to get this card and put it on water and overclock the heck out of it. I wonder if they will come out with drivers to get crossfire to work on Nvida AM2 motherboards since most AMD motherboards out now use Nvidia chipsets.

    Actually there is already news about R600 overclocking:



    techPowerUp! has AMD GPU Clock Tool available for download which can change R600 2D/3D clocks and lets you monitor temperatures of the card. It also works on RV610, RV630 and all previous products.

    I am also waiting to see how much you'll be able to push this baby

    Maybe we should start posting AMD badge pics, and see who's got the prettiest one :p

    Probably not, the NDA is still in effect, so he will have to dance around it

    *twiddles thumbs*

    Exceedingly bored with hearing about this card now, been waiting in the wings for too long, time for it to actually go retail and pull some numbers.
