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 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.
Clocks listed here are base clocks; NVIDIA Boost will further increase clocks.
Maximum overclock of our sample is 1090 MHz GPU base clock (7% overclocking) and 1980 MHz memory (13% overclock).
Overclocking is good, but not as good as on some other GTX 780 Ti cards we reviewed before. Still, the GTX 780 Ti generally overclocks much better than the GTX 780 non-Ti.
Important: Each GPU (including each GPU of the same make and model) will overclock slightly
|Maximum Overclock Comparison|
|Max. GPU Clock||Max. Memory Clock|
|EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified||1090 MHz||1980 MHz|
|MSI GTX 780 Ti Gaming||1090 MHz||1970 MHz|
|ASUS GTX 780 Ti DC II||1070 MHz||1910 MHz|

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 6.6%.
