Memory performance didn't look bad out of the box, and for the most part, you can see it lined up towards the middle of the pack. When it came to overclocking, though, it was interesting to see that the copy and read numbers seemed to take a slight dip in performance. The write number remained the same.

Looking at gaming performance, you can see that the numbers across the board are pretty similar when it comes to our stock clocks. Overclocking helps give us a bit of a boost at the lower resolution. However, moving to the higher resolution, you can see as the pressure is placed mainly on the video card, there's not too much difference.
