OverclockingOverclocking 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 2310 MHz on the memory (15% overclock) and +228 MHz to the GPU's base clock, which increases maximum Boost from 1911 MHz to 2139 MHz (2% overclock).
Important: Each GPU (including each GPU of the same make and model) will overclock slightly
|Maximum Overclock Comparison|
|Max. GPU Clock||Max. Memory Clock|
|GTX 1070 Ti FE||2139 MHz||2310 MHz|
|MSI GTX 1070 Ti Titanium||2139 MHz||2280 MHz|
|MSI GTX 1070 Ti Gaming||2038 MHz||2240 MHz|
|Colorful GTX 1070 Ti iGame Vulcan X Top||2114 MHz||2295 MHz|
|Palit GTX 1070 Ti Super JetStream||2088 MHz||2280 MHz|
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 14.1%.
