Score explanation: Less than 2000: Please adjust your game settings because the processing load is quite heavy.

5001+: The game works wonderfully at this setting.

While PSO2 normally sees a strong performance boost when overclocking, you can see we don't really have that here. For that reason, we're sitting a little behind the top NVIDIA offerings. The good news is, though, with a score of over 17,000 and the game maxed out at 2560 x 1600, playability isn't going to be an issue.
