For our overclocking tests today we are using AMD’s Catalyst Control Center.
Our overclocking results are a little worse than we have experienced with the standard size HD7850, but again this is to be expected considering the reduced form factor. That said, a final overclock result of almost 9 percent on the core, and 10 percent on the memory is not bad.
The overclocked settings, help generate another 400 points, with a final score of 5880. At this speed the card pushes past the HD6970, and closer to the GTX580 flagship from the last generation.
