Our next step on the list is overclocking. We fired up our favourite utility ATI Tool and got things under way.
BFG has already upped the ante on the core moving it from the stock 675MHz to 710MHz. We were able to then increase it further again and achieved a maximum core of 730MHz. While BFG has chosen to leave the memory at the default 2000MHz DDR we are not too sure why as it hits in excess of 2200MHz DDR with ease, 2256MHz DDR to be exact.
Let us go ahead and see what type of difference this makes to the overall performance in a sample of tests.
A default run of 3DMark06 sees our overclocked SLI solution able to break the 10k mark, something that we have only seen from the 8800 series in the past.
While it is not a huge gain, we are now only 2 FPS from breaking 100.
While the average does not move much the more important minimum gets an increase nearly breaking that 30fps barrier which is extremely important for achieving a smooth game experience.
