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 1225 MHz GPU base clock (23% overclocking) and 2040 MHz memory (24% overclock).
Overclocking works very well and reaches the highest clocks of all GTX 770 cards we tested so far. What makes this even more impressive is that the real-life performance at this clock frequency is properly reflected in the scores.
|Maximum Overclock Comparison|
|Max. GPU Clock||Max. Mem Clock||Max. OC Perf.|
|MSI GTX 770 Lightning||1225 MHz||2040 MHz||103.9 FPS|
|ASUS GTX 770 DC II||1185 MHz||2030 MHz||96.0 FPS|
|Gigabyte GTX 770||1225 MHz||1960 MHz||96.0 FPS|
|Palit GTX 770 JetStream||1205 MHz||2035 MHz||97.3 FPS|
|NVIDIA GTX 770||1210 MHz||2015 MHz||88.9 FPS|
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 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 9.4%.
