GT 220 Overclocking
When it comes to overclocking, the EVGA GeForce GT 220 SSC edition is already factory overclocked, but we wanted even more performance. The SSC version of the EVGA GeForce GT 220 features a 46MHz higher core clock and a 98MHz higher shader clock frequency than a standard clocked card. We wanted to push the card even harder, so we fired up EVGA's Precision overclocking utility and pushed the card even harder.
The EVGA Precision overclocking
utility gives you the ability to overclock the core, shader and memory clock frequencies and to manually adjust the fan to any speed your little heart desires. The only thing it doesn't do is give you the ability to adjust the voltages on the video cards!
We pushed the limits
of the card and found the highest that we
could get it was 765MHz on the core with the shaders locked at
1662MHz. This blows away a dead stock GeForce GT 220, so these cards have room for overclocking left in them.
