ASUS GTX 750 Ti OC 2 GB Review

Temperatures & Clock Profiles »


The 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 1200 MHz GPU base clock (12% overclocking) and 1505 MHz memory (11% overclock).

GPU overclocking works well, but is constrained by NVIDIA's power limiter. Once you exceed a certain clock frequency, the card will drop down to base clock to avoid drawing too much power. While I can certainly accept this behavioral pattern with other GTX 750 Tis since they are limited to the 75 W of a single PCI-Express slot, I find it unacceptable for the ASUS GTX 750 Ti OC because it comes with an additional 6-pin power connector. It seems as though ASUS did not configure their BIOS correctly around utilizing the 6-pin connector, instead hoping people will buy their card because it is capable of drawing more power for a potentially better overclock.

Memory doesn't overclock that much either, despite the fast that the Samsung chips we've seen on other GTX 750 Tis OC much better.

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 13.8%.
