Overclocking and System Specs


Even though we've had success overclocking Samsung memory on the GeForce4 Ti4600 cards we weren't too optimistic about the overclockability of the 5 ns Samsung DRAM on the MX440 (default speed is 400 MHz). We were in for a big surprise, the memory went all the way up to 485 MHz with no artifacts! 1 MHz higher though and Artifact Tester would report that a few were present. Even at 500 MHz memory we were unable to spot any "snow" in our games but there was the occasional tear here and there. We might have been able to hit even higher had we added ramsinks to cool the memory.

360 MHz core speed! I was blown away by that because it is pretty amazing considering we're still using standard stock cooling!

As you'll see in the coming benchmarks, overclocking the videocard brings a substantial performance boost!
