Overclocking

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.

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, the values discussed are the highest observed boost clock after overclocking. The same clock increase was applied to all clock levels.



Maximum overclock of our sample is 2250 MHz on the memory (13% overclock) and 1480 MHz on the GPU (5% overclock).

Maximum Overclock Comparison
Max. GPU ClockMax. Memory Clock
Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+1480 MHz2250 MHz
MSI RX 480 Gaming X1370 MHz2250 MHz
ASUS RX 480 STRIX1355 MHz2250 MHz
AMD RX 480 Reference1335 MHz2250 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 Performance

Using these clock frequencies, we ran a quick test of Battlefield 3 to evaluate the gains from overclocking.


Actual 3D performance gained from overclocking is 4.4%.
