How To Overclock An ATI Video Card With ATI Overdrive

Quote:
Overclocking is the art of increasing the speed of computer hardware beyond stock settings and is a popular way of improving computer performance. Video cards, like many other components, can be overclocked in order to increase performance in games.

If you ever wanted to overclock your video card, it used to be difficult, but competition between Nvidia and ATI has forced both companies into offering proprietary overclocking software as a means of providing better value for customers. ATI’s solution is called Overdrive, and it comes bundled in the ATI Radeon software suite which is installed when you install the drivers for your ATI video card. ATI Overdrive is quite simple to use and allows you to extract maximum performance from your existing video card.


Before going any further, be warned – the fact that ATI provides the Overdrive software doesn’t mean that ATI takes any responsibility for damage which might occur when you overclock your video card. Most warranties are invalidated by overclocking, as well. Overclocking your video card doesn’t pose a significant risk of damage, but there is always a slim chance of hardware failure when overclocking computer hardware. Please be warned.
