Geforce FX 5200 Question
I have a Geforce FX 5200 card that was made by BFG Tech. Now on the box it claims to be 10% faster then most and is overclocked but when I check the clock speeds on the core it is 250mhz and on the box it says its supposted to be 280mhz. Now my question is what is the Memory Clock supposted to be, it doesn't say on the box. My card has a small wafer fan on it so I think it is made to be overclocked slightly. Any ideas would be helpful thanks. :)

Looks like 350mhz?

350MHz DDR means "real" 175MHZ ?

It looks like those claims are complete BS. The original GeForce 5200 had a stock speed of 250MHz for the core and used 5ns DDR memory (400Mhz equivalent). Both 64 and 128bit buses are supported, thought cards with 64bit bus are restrained by the lack of bandwitdh

Well I know my memory clock is at 400Mhz. But if they supposably overclocked my card and its not overclocked now. Would they have overclocked the memory higher then 400Mhz? Is 400Mhz the standard clock for a Nvidia 5200?

Re: Geforce FX 5200 Question
On the FX5200 256mb card 400 (200DDR) is the stardard for them since they have 5ns memory on them.They more than likely did'nt over clock the memory since on 5ns memory 200 (400) is the default.
