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.
On NVIDIA cards with boost, the values discussed here are base clock. Boost will further increase clocks.
Maximum overclock on our card is 1180 MHz GPU base clock (16% overclocking) and 1960 MHz memory (30% overclock).
Overclocking works well and reaches clocks in the typical range for GK104 based cards. Memory OC is simply amazing, especially since these are the same 6 Gbps chips that are used on all other cards.
|Maximum Overclock Comparison|
|Max. GPU Clock||Max. Mem Clock||Max. OC Perf.|
|MSI GTX 760 Gaming||1180 MHz||1960 MHz||87.8 FPS|
|NVIDIA GTX 760||1140 MHz||1760 MHz||79.2 FPS|
|Gigabyte GTX 760 OC||1190 MHz||1850 MHz||86.6 FPS|
|Palit GTX 760 JetStream||1140 MHz||1750 MHz||82.9 FPS|
|EVGA GTX 760 SC||1220 MHz||1840 MHz||88.8 FPS|
|ASUS GTX 760 DC II OC||1175 MHz||1840 MHz||86.5 FPS|
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 19.5%.
