Hercules 3D Prophet 9700 Pro: Extreme Overclocking

We started overclocking cards in the extreme mode yet in 2000. Such mode requires proper cooling of the whole computer case, a 3D accelerator usually acquires the second wind, and the frequency limit grows up marginally.
Unfortunately, we couldn't put to the test the NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4600, but today we want to make up for it and try the RADEON 9700 Pro. We certainly take into account that even such mighty processors as Pentium4 2.53 GHz limit the potential of this accelerator, that is why the tests will be carried out at much higher frequencies with the RADEON 9700 Pro loaded heavily with anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing.

Test system:

Pentium 4 2530 MHz based computer:
Intel Pentium 4 2530 MHz;
ASUS P4T533 (i850E) mainboard;
512 MB 32bit RDRAM PC4200;
Seagate Barracuda IV 40GB hard drive;
Windows XP.
