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 1020 MHz GPU base clock (13% overclocking) and 1765 MHz memory (18% overclock).
Overclocking ends up quite a bit lower than with other GTX 780 cards we tested before, but the differences are not that huge. The card still overclocks well.
Important: Each GPU (including each GPU of the same make and model) will overclock slightly
|Maximum Overclock Comparison|
|Max. GPU Clock||Max. Mem Clock|
|MSI GTX 780 GAMING||1020 MHz||1765 MHz|
|ASUS GTX 780 DC II||1090 MHz||1855 MHz|
|EVGA GTX 780 SC||1065 MHz||1855 MHz|
|GIGABYTE GTX 780||1035 MHz||1850 MHz|
|NVIDIA GTX 780||1050 MHz||1865 MHz|
|NVIDIA GTX TITAN||990 MHz||1780 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 14.6%.
