GeForce GTX680 Overclocked Benchmarks
In Futuremark 3DMark11 with the performance preset we found the GeForce GTX 680 had an overall score of P9767. When overclocked to the max we hit P11000! This is a performance gain of ~12.6% and enough to put the GeForce GTX 680 ahead of the GeForce GTX 590 and even the AMD Radeon HD 6990 OC! This isn’t a real game though, so let’s take a look at some real game titles.
In the game title Just Cause 2 we found the that the overclock helped boost the frame rate significantly! At 1280×1024 we saw a 6.6% performance improvement, followed by 8.0% at 1920×1080 and 11.7% at 2560×1600. Not a bad performance jump for free!
In Metro 2033 we saw a 6-8% performance improvement thanks to overclocking!
The final game title that we benchmarked the GeForce GTX680 overclocked on was Battlefield 3 and we saw a 9.4% performance improvement at 2560×1600 thanks to overclocking and was able to play on this Ultra HD screen resolution at above 50 FPS on average. We saw a solid 8-11% performance increase thanks to our overclock in BF3.
