Overclocking The Graphics Card

Overclocking The Graphics Card

Traditional overclocking - As most of you know, with most video cards you can apply a simple series of tricks to boost the overall performance a little. Typically you can tweak on core clock frequencies and voltages. By increasing the frequency of the videocard's memory and GPU, we can make the videocard increase its clock cycles per second.


Original This sample Overclocked 
Core Clock: 1506 MHz Core Clock: 1544 MHz Core Clock: 1679MHz
Boost Clock: 1709 MHz Boost Clock: 1759 MHz Max Boost Clock: ~2050 MHz
Memory Clock: 8000 MHz Memory Clock: 8000 MHz Memory Clock: 9408 MHz

So AfterBurner is in a new Beta stage development and voltage control is still pending release. The memory on our sample was insanely tweakable as we reached 9.4 GHz.

Our applied tweak:

  • Core Voltage : +100%
  • Power Limit : 116 %
  • Temp. limit : 92C 
  • Core Clock : + 125 
  • Memory Clock : +700 MHz (=9.4 GHz effective data-rate)

Once overclocked keep this in mind: Due to the dynamic nature of the boost clock, your frequency is not fixed. Limiters and monitors, temperature, load, power and voltages will continuously alter a maximum clock state. For most founders cards these will all be the same, likely for board partners as well.
