ATI to let partners overclock?
The Inquirer reports
that ATI partners, such as Sapphire and Connect3D, have apparently managed to secure ATI's go-ahead to release factory-overclocked cards. This trend has been going strong for some time among several of NVIDIA's board partners, who often ship cards with slightly higher core and memory clocks than the stock models. ATI will reportedly provide a warranty for the factory-overclocked chips, and require a validation process in order to control overclocking frequencies.
