ECS GeForce GTX 460 1GB Black Overclocking
Here is a refresher of the stock specifications before I fired up MSI Afterburner and cranked things up a bit.
Upping the core voltage a touch to 1.037v (from 1.000v), I was able to run stable at 900 MHz Core and 1000 MHz (2000 MHz eff.). With the shaders (CUDA Cores) up to 1800 MHz. a 135 MHz core increase on a factory overclocked card is always nice, and the 270 MHz increase on the shaders is great for some Folding@Home action (although, I have only run 1600 MHz shaders for folding (10k average)). The VRAM increase picked up a solid 10GB/s of bandwidth.
Not pictured on the chart is the 3DMark Vantage GPU score which went from 14,913 to 16,056 which is a 7% increase. Looking at the rest of the results, on average we picked up around a 12% increase (from 5% in L4D2 up to 15% in Stalker), which is lower than the 17% core and shader clock increases, but more than the memory clocks which only went up by 8%.
