Using Powerstrip, I upped the 8890's M10 engine clock to 418 and the memory to 310, and scored 3571 on 3DMark03 and 12,007 on 3DMark2001SE.
Computer has been running stable, games are running fine. It makes one wonder how far can we push the M10?
Is your puter noticibly warmer? I'm a bit leary about OCing it, as it has been giving out awsome performance in almost everything.
The only thing that has run at all slow on my 5680 is Halo - but from what I have heard it runs slow on everybody's computer.
(Including Radeon 9800 desktops)
There is a command line switch you can pass the game that forces it to use 1.0 or 1.1 pixel shaders instead of 2.0, which boosts the frame rate by a huge amount, but it still slows down slightly during gun fights and that’s at 1024x768. I would _love_ to play it smooth at 1600x1200, and I'm a bit disappointed that I can’t - though it’s obviously the game, not the hardware. I mean UT2003 runs great at 1600x1200, and you could sit here and argue all day about which one has better graphics...
But would OCing really improve that? With all the positive results people have been posting about it, maybe I'll give it a shot, unless anybody already has?
