We installed the EVGA Precision X 3.0.3 software utility to overclock
both the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Superclocked and MSI N650Ti Power Edition video cards.
EVGA Precision X v3.0.3 did not let us adjust the power target, but we could increase the GPU and Memory clock offsets within a certain range.
After spending an afternoon with both cards we were shocked to find that we were able to reach 1157MHz on the core clock on both cards. Not too often do we reach exactly the same clock speed, but it happened here! The memory was bumped up by +110 MHz on each card for an overall effective clock of 5616 MHz.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti at Stock Settings (928MHz Core & 5400MHz Memory):
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Superclocked w/ 1157MHz Core & 5616MHz Memory:
MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti Power Edition w/ 1157MHz Core & 5616MHz Memory:
With this overclock we were able to hit ~P5700on 3DMark 11 with the
performance preset, which is a nice increase from ~P4800! This is a around a 700 point in our score,
which is a 19% improvement in performance over the reference cards clock speed.
You can’t complain much when you can get around a 19% performance boost for no cost and minimal effort!
