Graphics performance is exactly as you'd expect. Out of the box the performance of the Force is pretty much in line with everything else. When it comes to overclocking, we see a slight performance boost in the lower resolution settings, which places more emphasis on the CPU. When we move up the resolution table though, we can see that nothing changes as the pressure moves onto just the video card.
