nvidia , does they clock down cards ?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi!

I readed about my graphic card , Gainward 6600 Golden sample 256mb and it says that the clock should be 400 MHz core clock, 560 MHz memory clock
and my clock are 350 Mhz core and 500 mhz memory , is it possible that nvidia did clock the card down ?

I'm guessing you are looking at 2D clocks instead of 3D clocks? Make sure you check the 3D clocks. Also every brand uses different types and different clock speeds so not all the 6600's are the same. And of course you can always overclock it.

Good post, It could definately be 2D and 3D clocks. Download rivertuner and check it out

The 6600 comes in two flavors, AGP and PCI-Ex16 and in both cases the speed reference is completely different, see here: AGP vs PCI-Ex16.

Now, your AGP 6600 should be ar 300/550 but you said yours is 350/500.............and this is where it's common to see the manufacturer lower the speed of the memory, because I remember in the 6800 days when the reference design speed for that video card was 700 for memory, some vendors were running their cards at 600mhz, so it's possible that GAINWARD just lowered the speed of the memory by 50mhz, no biggie.

Overclock it and you'll gain what GAINBACKWARDS took from you. Use Coolbits2.0

get atitool. it'll tell you both 2d and 3d clocks and you can clock it separately. Forget about WHY they're low...just fix them if you want the speed lol.

nVidia has nothing to do with the clock speeds. The PCB manufacturers (like Gainward) are the ones who do that.
