The 9600XT is based off the same core and it's clocked almost a 100Mhz higher than the 9800XT out of the box.Brian48 said:I wouldn't bother o/c'ng the 9800XT. I doubt the gains would be noticable. Also, the 9800XT is pretty much clocked as high as it can go from the factory so your o/c ceiling would probably be very low anyway.
The 9600 is a 128-bit 4 pipe core. The 9800xt is a 256-bit 8 pipe core. I really don't think they're based on the same core.GVX said:The 9600XT is based off the same core and it's clocked almost a 100Mhz higher than the 9800XT out of the box.
Hmmm... Good point, I forgot about that one. Now that I think about it the 9600XT also has Low K which is what helps it reach the higher clock. Thanks for pointing that out.lithium726 said:HAHA
