    In an overclocking feat by XtremeSystems community members Elmor and Kinc, an ASUS EAH5870 MATRIX Radeon HD 5870 graphics card was able to achieve a mind-boggling core speed of 1525 MHz (core) from its default speed of 894 MHz, and AMD reference speed of 850 MHz. This translates into 70% over default speeds, and 79% over reference speeds. The not-so-relevant memory overclock was 1300 MHz (5.2 GHz effective), an 8.3% overclock. The card was cooled using liquid-nitrogen evaporators.

    This wasn't a "hit-and-run" feat, either. The stability of the GPU at 1500 MHz was proven with a run of 3DMark Vantage, where it scored P29342 points at the performance preset. The rest of the bench comprised of an Intel Core i7 980X Extreme Edition six-core processor running at 4492.9 MHz, at 1.52V, also cooled by liquid nitrogen, ASUS Rampage III Extreme motherboard, 6 GB of Corsair Dominator GTX DDR3 memory, and Antec 1200W power supply. The validation for the 3DMark Vantage run where it scored P30542 can be found here.

    Goes on to show that this is a very well crafted piece of silicon.

    Despite this massively impressive overclock, a GTX 480 will be faster and better. This is because nvidia always make the fastest and best cards, bar none.

    I'd read the rest from this nvidia PR leaflet, but the dog ate it. :laugh:

    Will it blend though? Or you can ride on it backwards?

    Maybe I'm missing something, but why is 1300 MHz effective 4.9 GHz? My math says it should be 5.2 GHz (1300x4=5200).
    Anyways, nice achievement there :).

    why is the memory clock less than important?

    wouldn't increasing the memory clock help the scores out too, or is it pretty much irrelevant?

    it's just a curiosity. It seems like there's always more emphasis placed on core speed rather than mem speed so I'm just wondering why.
