XFX GeForce 7900GS PV-T71P-UDE3 Video Card Review :: Test Setup and Procedures

You'll notice I included the 7900GS at its default clock rate and its overclocked clock rate. The video card ran through the tests without problems at the overclocked settings. Further I played the games in the gaming section with no game crashes even at 584MHz. It should be interesting to see what this core can do with a better cooling system.
