Turning our hand to overclocking, we use MSI Afterburner to see how much more we could squeeze from this GPU. The answer is ‘not a lot’, at least in terms of GPU frequency where we could only add a +40MHz offset. The GDDR6X memory is definitely more amenable to an overclock though, where we managed a +850MHz offset, bringing speeds to 20.7Gbps.
This overclock didn’t net us huge gains, with an FPS boost between 3-4% in the games we rested. However, when we consider the card already ships with a decent factory overclock, performance was up to 9% higher than the Founders Edition at stock speeds.
