As you can see, our 230Mhz speed bump gave us a nice little boost. POV, WinRAR and ScienceMark all saw around a 9% increase in their scores. Probably a more realistic indicator though is the FEAR results, which gave us a full 1 fps increase! Cinebench and 3dMark 06 saw more modest increses of between 3-7%. Overall though, it is always nice to get some free extra performance!
