ATI Partners Consider X1800 XT Speed Boost

After NVIDIA's GeForce 7800 GTX 512MB effectively stole the title of fastest consumer level graphics card earlier this week, some ATI video card partners are considering a speed boost for ATI's flagship X1800 XT in order to compete. Targeted speeds could reach 650-675MHz on the graphics core, up from the stock 625MHz, and 1550MHz on the video RAM, up from a stock speed of 1500MHz.

ATI stated that it will more than likely not forbid its partners to increase the clock speeds on its GPUs, but product guidelines give a limit to clock speeds that will be covered under the company's warranty program. As long as clock speeds are kept inside this window, a warranty will be honored.
