Test System Setup

Processor(s): Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.8GHz (190MHz x 20)
Cooling: Noctua NH-U12P (Supplied by Noctua)
Motherboard(s): GIGABYTE EX58-UD5 (Supplied by GIGABYTE)
Memory: 3 X 2GB Kingston Hyper X PC3-16000 2000MHz DDR CL9 (Supplied by Kingston)
Hard Disk(s): Western Digital 640GB SATA 2.0 HDD (Supplied by Western Digital)
Operating System: Windows 7
Drivers: Catalyst 10.1

Since the core clock on the model out of the box was only 25MHz extra, we didn't worry about testing it at that speed. Instead we thought we would see what kind of results we got at the overclocked speed we achieved.

We didn't want to take the focus away from what the HD 5770 HAWK offered, so we have today chosen to only compare the HD 5770 HAWK at the speed we achieved to a stock clocked one.

Let's get started!

Straight away you can see this massive boost in performance from the HAWK. Looking at the numbers, you can see this give us what is a 20% performance increase. We move from just over P10000 to almost P13000; this is a simply awesome increase. Let's hope it translates in the real world.
