Galaxy GeForce GTS 450 Super OC 1GB in SLI Overclocked

Already impressed with what the GTS 450 in SLI offers, we see what our Galaxy offerings do when we ramp up the clocks further.

Introduction

Another launch has brought with it another huge amount of reviews and articles. So far we've looked at the Galaxy, MSI and Palit offerings of the model in standalone review form. We've also looked at the MSI card when overclocked to a massive 950MHz core and we've just finished looking at the Galaxy version in SLI, too.

 

If that wasn't enough for you, it's time to see what happens when we check out the Galaxy cards in SLI, when overclocked. SLI of this mid range card is going to become a popular option, because as people expand into multiple monitor setups and SLI becomes a requirement for that, buying two mid range cards like the GTS 450 or GTX 460 is a more feasible and attractive option than buying two much more expensive GTX 470s or GTX 480s.

 

Since we've already looked at the Galaxy offering in a lot more detail, I recommend that if you haven't yet, to check out the stand alone review of it here if you want to know what's going on with the bundle. Let's not delay any longer and check out what happen with our overclock.

 


Overclocking

 

Galaxy already started with a high 888MHz core clock and 4000MHz QDR clock, and since we got only 950MHz out of the MSI card when it was sitting by its lonesome, we didn't expect to get too high since we figure the extra heat of having two cards would impact our overclock slightly.

What we ended up with was pushing the core to 920MHz; that in turn bumped the Shader to 1840MHz and the 1GB of GDDR5 went from an already nicely overclocked 4000MHz QDR to 4300MHz QDR.
