Benchmarks: Overclocking performance

When it came time to overclock the Radeon X1650 Pro was just about all out of legs. Given ATI has almost pushed this core to its limits already, we never expected to get much more out of it and we never did. The core accepted another 40MHz while the memory took another 100MHz DDR. The 7600GS on the other hand took a core clock boost of 62MHz while the memory climbed another 144MHz DDR.

Although this meant that the GeForce 7600GS was still a long way behind the Radeon X1650 Pro in terms of core and memory frequencies, it was able to dominate the X1650 Pro in the benchmarks, particularly in Far Cry, UT2004 and Quake 4.
