Nvidia 8800 GT and GTS Showdown: XFX, Zotac and Gainward

Nvidia 8800 GT and GTS Showdown: XFX, Zotac and Gainward

Product image


To overclock each of the cards we installed Nvidia’s nTune utility which allows us to increase the core and memory speeds using a simple interface.

Before testing began we knew it was unlikely that we would reach much above the default memory speed on each card and that proved to Clientes be the case. The XFX card reached the highest memory speed with its Qimonda chips reaching 1040MHz. The Zotac card was not far behind at 1025 and the Gainward card reached 1008MHz.

The fastest core was found on the AMP! Edition and it overclocked to 735 MHz, with XFX 10MHz behind. Gainward topped out at 705MHz, 55MHz above its shipping speed. Shown below are the results for each card at their maximum overclock.
