Overclocking and Benchmarks

We've typically had good luck overclocking Albatron videocards in the past, and so I'd expect the GeForceFX 5700P Turbo would be up to the challenge too.

For these tests, the core overclocking tests were started first. The core is clocked at 425 MHz, only 25 MHz slower than the GeForceFX 5700 Ultra default clock. Not surprisingly the Albatron GeForceFX 5700P Turbo had no problems hitting that mark. After inching up a few MHz at a time, the core even broke 500 MHz - not too bad for a value videocard! By the time things had evened out, we topped out just a bit past 500 MHz (504 MHz specifically).

Upon removing the memory heatsinks it was evident that the Albatron 5700P Turbo was equipped with Hynix 2.5ns BGA DDR RAM modules (HY5DU28322). In theory this memory should be good up to 800 MHz, but whether they can run at that speed remains to be seen.

Starting at 650 MHz, the memory clock speed was increased a few MHz at a time to 700 MHz. Speeds higher than that would start to produce artifacts unfortunately. The RAM heatsinks were not hot to the touch, so I can only guess at what was holding the memory back from it's theoretical top speed.

As always, we will include the overclocked results for this card for reference purposes, in the following pages of benchmarks. To see the overclocked results for each of the other videocards used in this review, please see each individual review on PCstats. Now, time for those benchmarks!

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.

Albatron GeForceFX 5700P Turbo 14176
Albatron GeForceFX 5700P Turbo (504/702) 15114

Here we see that the Albatron GeForceFX 5700P Turbo scores only about 1000 points lower than the GeForceFX 5700 Ultra, despite a much lower overall clock speed. Not bad.
