You will need
- The program Riva Tuner and 3D Mark, more powerful cooler.
All you need is a program Riva Tuner. Because some graphics cards feature passive cooling system containing a radiator, you should ensure that your graphics card has a cooler. If not, or the cooler is not effective enough, then you need to take care of his replacement, because the increased capacity can lead to overheating of chips and an unstable graphics card.
Install and run Riva Tuner. Despite the fact that this program functions is quite extensive, we will need only the control parameters clock frequency of the GPU and memory controller, which have different tires and different frequencies. After the first start you will see two triangular icons next to each inscription Customize. The top icon contains settings for low level overclocking, and lower for the software using the driver. For ATI cards and older GeForce (4 series) use top triangle for the new generation of GeForce – bottom.
Clicking on the icon in the menu that appears, click the first icon, in the opened window put a tick next to the Enable driver-level hardware overclocking and reboot, then you can start to disperse. Now in the dialog box there are two volsunga, travel which you can set the clock speed of the graphics card. The top is responsible for the memory frequency and lower the GPU. Then change the mode to 3D and begin to gradually increase the frequency by moving the sliders.
It is recommended to raise the frequency in stages, each time for 5 MHz for CPU and 7-8 MHz for the memory. After each change of parameters need to run a test such as 3D Mark, the results of which you can judge the performance boost video card. After the test, you will be the first sign of an unstable graphics card, which can manifest as defects in the image or the test will simply “hang”, you need to reduce the frequencies of 8-10 MHz and leave them.
Now you can obtained the results of the test compare with the original, and to conclude, how to increase the performance of the graphics card.
