Testing:

Testing the Axle GeForce G210 is not a challenge, so much as determining what kind of gaming performance this card is capable of. The computing attributes make it a card that will help improve the everyday experience of a computer for the mainstream user. To test out the G210 gaming credentials, I will run the card through the OverclockersClub suite of benchmarks, but since it won't be able to deliver playable frame rates at the settings I use, I will reduce the settings to a level that gives an expectation of playability. In reality, this card will most likely find its home in a mainstream computer with a 17" to 19" LCD panel in a home office or in the family computer. Testing will be limited from 1280x1024 to 1920x1200, with the revised settings listed at the top of each game page. 1280x1024 should be playable in all of the games in the suite, so let's get to it and see if we can make it playable. Of course, overclocking will be part of the exercise. The drivers used for this test will be Catalyst 9.10 for all ATI cards and 191.07 for the nVidia cards.

Overclocking:

Overclocked settings:

  • Axle 650/850/1547

Overclocking the Axle G210 video card was pretty straightforward.  You simply go into your favorite software to adjust your GPU Core, Memory, and Shader Clock frequencies and slowly adjust them higher and higher until you get an unstable overclock and back it down until it is stable again. Well, unfortunately, the Axle G210 was unable to get a very high overclock without becoming unstable. I was able to get 650MHz on the core, the memory was able to get up to 850MHz and the shader clock was able to get to 1547MHz. I am hoping that the gain in raw power translates into higher scores during both the gaming benchmarks as well as the synthetic ones.
