VIDEOCARD OVERCLOCKING



With a stock value of 550Mhz core, 1700Mhz shader and 1340Mhz DDR5 memory set, using MSI AfterBurner I tried to push the card to its 100% stable ceiling. Through several hours of testing and benchmarking, I finally found a 100% stable overclock of 670Mhz core and 1745Mhz shader and 1970Mhz DDR5 memory which resulted in an amazing 120Mhz core, 45Mhz shader and 630Mhz DDR5 overclock. This is nothing less than astonishing for a low cost videocard and you can tell that Asus wasn't exactly sampling from the DDR5 bargain bin when they were picking out their memory. The memory just kept on going and going and I was wondering if I was ever going to see its overclocking ceiling. Whether or not the overclocking transfers to faster framerates will be seen in the upcoming benchmarking but I highly doubt that the difference will be marginal.
