GeForce GTX570 Overclocking
A performance analysis of the GeForce GTX 570 video card wouldn't be complete without some overclocking results, so we got in touch with our friends over at EVGA and they said the latest build of their EVGA Precision software would work on the GeForce GTX 570 reference card.
Using the EVGA Precision software utility for the GeForce GTX 570 graphics card is one of the easiest ways to overclock a video card and since we have only had the GTX 570 for a few days it was perfect.
The highest overclock that we could get on the GeForce GTX 570 reference card was 825MHz on the core, 1650MHz on the shaders and 1088MHz on the 1280MB of GDDR5 memory. This overclock was 100% stable on games and the synthetic benchmarks like 3DMark Vantage. We gamed on this setting for a few hours and feel safe to call it 100% stable.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 Graphics Card at 732MHz/1464MHz/950MHz:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 Graphics Card at 825MHz/1650MHz/1088MHz:
We saw 3DMark Vantage go up from X11317 to X12674, which is a 11% jump in performance! Let's see what it does in real games.
The jump from 732MHz to 825MHz on the core clock helped boost performance by 13% in AvP at a resolution of 1920x1200. We'll take a 11-13% performance increase from overclocking any day! If you throw a little extra voltage at this card you'll likely get a much better overclock.
