Gainward GeForce 4 PowerPack GS Ultra/750XP Video
Gainward GeForce 4 PowerPack GS Ultra/750XP Video - PCSTATS
For example, what does 750XP really stand for? Does it imply that the memory can run up to 750MHz...

A bit more info on the card and overclocking

As I mentioned earlier, the Gainward GeForce 4 GS Ultra/750XP is based on the reference designed nVidia GeForce 4 Ti4600 so the core speed is 300 MHz while the RAM speed is 650 MHz.

Since Gainward has taken the step of placing heatsinks on the RAM, we can only guess that it's the same BGA 2.8ns Samsung RAM. The RAMsinks are a good idea since the memory does get warm during testing. As for overclocking went; the Gainward GeForce 4 GS Ultra/750XP was up to the task.

The A2 stepping core hit it's limit at 328 MHz which is very nice considering that only stock cooling was used. The BGA RAM memory went all the way up to 745 MHz.

Please note the MSI GeForce 4 Ti4600 is clocked at 300/660 by default. We wanted to include a GeForce 3 Ti500 as reference, however we had some serious problems trying to get the Ti500 to work with WindowsXP.

3DMark2000 Ver 1.1 Source: MadOnion

3DMark2000 is still a popular benchmarks for evaluating 3D performance even though it is getting a bit dated. 3DMark2000 continues to provide benchmark results that gauge DirectX7 performance and hardware transformation and lighting that older games still use. Version 1.1 ensures more reliable functionality with hardware and operating systems that were released after the launch of 3DMark2000 in December 1999.

Higher numbers denote better performance.

3DMark2000 is a DirectX7 benchmark and here we can see we're all CPU limited for the GeForce 4 based cards.

3DMark2001SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics.

Higher numbers denote better performance.

4. Gainward GF4 Ti4600 oc'ed 11622

Here the Radeon 8500 is left in the dust by the other cards. Here the MSI again beats the Gainward however it is clocked higher by default. Overclocking the GS Ultra/750XP doesn't seem to help the score much.
