Comments on: AMD’s ATI breaks 1Ghz barrier — for real? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/05/14/amds-ati-breaks-1ghz-barrier-for-real/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: alex http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/05/14/amds-ati-breaks-1ghz-barrier-for-real/#comment-358870 Sun, 17 May 2009 22:15:10 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=16758#comment-358870 Wow, someone over here at reuters really doesn’t like ati/amd.
Being the first on the market to officially release 1ghz+ processors is exactly what ati said. Last I checked, they didn’t have a parade or anything for it, so why all the ati bashing? Its a respectable company which is trying to push the envelope every bit as much as nVidia, however has to put up with journalists cheapening their success with bitter skepticism rather than congratulations. I agree that their card is no “long term fix,” but that is the same as every other card released since.. well .. ever. The rule of thumb is, buy the card that is the best bang for your buck (whether or not it happens to be nVidia, Eddie) and pray that it lasts long enough to play the games you want for a few years. Have you heard of Moore’s Law? It applies to nVidia every bit as much as ati.

Is it still possible to overclock this card?
