OverclockingThe overclocking results listed in this section were achieved with the default fan and voltage settings as defined in the VGA BIOS. Please note that every single sample overclocks differently, which is why our results here can only serve as a guideline for what you can expect from your card.
The maximum stable clocks of our card are 1140 MHz core (6% overclock) and 1885 MHz memory (40% overclock).
Overclocking works better than on other GTX 650 Ti cards that we reviewed before. Especially the large memory overclock will, as we are going to see further down on this page, make a big difference in real-life performance.
|Maximum Overclock Comparison|
|Max. GPU Clock||Max. Memory Clock|
|EVGA GTX 650 TI SSC||1140 MHz||1885 MHz|
|ZOTAC GTX 650 Ti AMP!||1100 MHz||1870 MHz|
|MSI GTX 650 Ti PE||1135 MHz||1655 MHz|
|ASUS GTX 650 Ti DC II||1135 MHz||1400 MHz|
Important: Each GPU (including each GPU of the same make and model)
will overclock slightly differently based on random production variances.
This table just serves to provide a list of typical overclocks for similar cards,
determined during TPU review.
Overclocked PerformanceUsing these clock frequencies, we ran a quick test of Battlefield 3 to evaluate the gains from overclocking.
Actual 3D performance gained from overclocking is 22.6%.
