O my god!!!!!! I got sooooooo lucky with the overclocked ti200
Guys...........you wont believe this.......... :eek:

stock core=175
my clock speed.........255!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek:


stock ram.......400
my ram.......525!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek:

stock score........7400
overclocked score.........8850 :eek:

thats +1450 marks from an overclock, setting it to record levels

Its a chaintech if it makes any difference, stock cooling, no volt mods either. Notes: at 530 ram I get like 3 artifacts LOL but I am so strict with my zero artifact policy. Core gets slight white dots at 260, artifacts quite badly at 265 and locks up in 2-d at 270 ouch! It did lock in quake3 at 255 though in 2048x1536x32 all max after its 2nd run, probably too hot or intense. Got 103fps in 1600x1200x32 and 61 in 2048x1536. Ill play with her later, probably gonna lower the core to an even 250/525 for ram. Most ti200's do like 210/460! 240/500 is a very impressive overclock for a ti200, but imagine 255/525!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek:

My Gainward Geforce 3 was able to run 240/539 stable - was 175/400? - completely forgot. Since I don't run 3DMark2K1 or 3DMark2K3 - no comments please! :) - I don't have comparison numbers. I used Q3A and UT to gauge performance differences, partially through timedemos.

I have since replaced it with a 9800 Pro - no comments here either. :D For the record, overclock ability on some really well made G3's was insane, especially if you had memory heatsinks and/or a good custom cooling fan. Congrats on the huge jump in performance. :)

My palit daytona ti200 runs at 235/525 with stock cooling

Using my calculator I see that you have improved the 3Dmark score by 13%. That would be one percentage point for each exclamation mark in your post. Seems like a bit of over excitement unless you were intending to be sarcastic, in which case I fell into the trap.

The going price for a TI200 is about $70 on pricewatch. Using the 13% figure, you got another $9 of value out of the TI200. Well I guess that's worth some "exclamation marks". Maybe.

I disagree with the other poster who calls 13% a "huge jump". Taken another way 13% might amount to 3 or 4 FPS on a game. If you need a benchmark to tell you its faster, its not a "huge jump" guys.

Hi,

Sorry Geforce4ti4200, You can't beat me. My ASUS AGP-V8200T2 GeForce3 Ti 200 64MB can go further with 260MHz Core & 575MHz Memory. The Memory is EtronTech 4.0ns. And My Leadtek WinFast GeForce3 TDH 64MB can go 250/570. This is a 24/7 setting & my room temp. is 34.8 C.

To be honest, the "huge jump" depends on the games the original poster checks his performance against. My G3 overclock directly translated into a lot more than 3-4 FPS in both timedemo and actual play in Q3A (one example). It was something like 20+ FPS on non-CPU lmited timedemos (demo four and a few other custom demos) and about 10-15 FPS ingame across the board. I had a similar overclock. I consider that a (relatively) huge jump. :D This is what I based my huge jump conclusion off of - the potential for this to be huge in certain games based on my own experience with a similar card and similar overclock. I agree with you when you mention that the benchmark itself/solely may not be a true indication of performance.

Of course, the even larger jump for me is from the g3 to the 9800, but that is another topic for another day. :D

I tried to overclock it to 220/525 and the system froze up on me so i just left it at what it was 200/450

My memory is topping out at 519 on stock cooling. I'm fairly sure the core has got a little more grunt in it though - Currently 213. I should look into that later.

I only have mine at 220/520 right now, because my system is so old it really doesn't pay to OC all that far.

My last card was a golden sample gainward gf 3 ti200 that ran stable @ 245/560 on 4ns ram w/ copper ram sinks.

My gf3ti200 only got to 230/490 artifact free, so I run it at 220/480 to allow some paranoid stability headroom. I think I get 8700 3dmark2001 with nforce2 and xp2100, no other OC.

A GF3 Ti has always been a great card. It is the reason that I never purchased a GF4... I have one sitting here waiting for a motherboard...After reading this, I'm getting the itch to OC it once again. In fact, most GF3's are so 'friendly', that even coolbits isn't enough to OC them with...you really need Rivatuner or GF tweak Utility. Great clocks you people are getting!

What are you smoking?

8850 divided by 7400 = 119.6%

Thats a 19.6% improvement. I think your calculator is broken.
