7. Video Hacks > 73. Overclock Your ATI Radeon

Overclock Your ATI Radeon

Perhaps the simplest and safest way to determine and set the highest speeds for your ATI adapters.

The easiest and safest way I found to kick up your ATI video adapter and get a performance increase is with a nicely written, easy-to-use program called ATITool, shown in Figure 7-6.

It is available for download from http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/. ATITool is known to overclock cards with the ATI Radeon 9000, 9200, 9500, 9600, 9700, and 9800 chips, but it should work on other older ATI cards as well. ATITool will test your adapter for both the maximum core video processor speed and the highest memory speed your card will work at reliably. When it finds the fastest and safest values, you can store them away, lock them into the adapter, and have them set every time you boot your PC.
