For our overclocking testing, we used AMD Wattman. We maximised the frequency curve, along with the power limit slider, and were also able to set the memory at its maximum frequency of 950MHz. We did all of our manual overclocking testing using the Performance BIOS.
Average clock speed under load
This overclock saw average clock speed increase by just over 160MHz, or a 9% increase.
This resulted in performance increases of between 6-8%, which is slightly more than we typically see from 5700 XT cards – then again, the Pulse is starting off with lower clock speeds than most we have tested in the last few months, but it is still a decent performance improvement regardless.
