Overclocking

GPU-Z Screenshot for Overclocked Graphics Card


Manual overclocking has once more become more complicated with this generation. Since the cards are always running in the power limiter, you can no longer just dial-in stable clocks for the highest boost state to find the maximum overclock. The biggest issue is that you can't just reach that state reliably, so your testing is limited to whatever frequency your test load is running at.

With manual overclocking, maximum overclock of our sample is 2020 MHz on the memory (15% overclock) and +130 MHz to the GPU's base clock, which increases maximum Boost from 1980 MHz to 2040 MHz (3% overclock).

Testing notes & interpretation
  • Overclocking results listed in this section are achieved with the default fan, power, and voltage settings as defined in the VGA BIOS. We choose this approach as it is the most realistic scenario for most users.
  • Each GPU (including each GPU of the same make and model) will overclock slightly differently based on random production variances.
  • The data in this table shows comparable overclocks, using identical conditions, from previous TechPowerUp Reviews.

Overclocked Performance

Using these clock frequencies, we ran a quick test of Unigine Heaven to evaluate the gains from overclocking.
