Temperatures & Clock Profiles »


Overclocking results listed in this section are achieved with the default fan 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 with Boost, 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 2415 MHz on the memory (21% overclock) and +178 MHz to the GPU's base clock, which increases maximum Boost from 1974 MHz to 2152 MHz (9% overclock).

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 14.5%.
