we mentioned earlier, the All in Wonder uses the standard Radeon core designed
for 183MHz coupled with 32MB of 6ns(166MHz) Samsung DDR Ram. Because ATI does
not speed grade the Radeon GPU's, theoretically we should be able to attain a
core overclock similar to any other Radeon product. Obviously the RAM is likely
to be our overclocking limiter, holding us back from hitting those ultra high
speeds DDR is known for.
EnTech's PowerStrip utility we cranked up the speed to see just how high the AiW
would go. As we theorized, the AiW overclocks very similarly to most other Radeon
products; we were able to operate at 200.3MHz without problems. Cranking it up
another 3 Mhz caused minor artifacting, 205MHz caused major screen distortion.
3 the performance gains are quite evident, however fairly small in benchmarking
numbers. We see close to a 7% increase in performance at both 1024x768 and
800x600, while only a 2.8% increase at 640x480. This would seem to confirm
our earlier discussion about bandwidth limitations holding the Radeon back.
