GT200 Review: Benchmarks of overclocked MSI and Zotac GTX 280 graphics cards.
PCGH delivered a lot of GTX 280 benchmarks. Now we check the OC versions of two manufacturers.
Today's samples are delivered by MSI and Zotac. Both companies offer overclocked GTX 280s, which run with 702/1,400/1,150 MHz. In theory this should allow for a performance boost of 5 to 15 percent. The candidates:
- MSI N280GTX-T2D1G-OC
- Zotac Geforce GTX 280 Amp-Edition
The announced Asus ENGTX280 TOP/HTDP/1G is still missing. It got a core clock of "only” 670 MHz but the shaders run at 1,460 MHz.
GTX 280 OC: Performance and Conclusion
Our Extrem FSAA Benchmarks already showed that the GTX 280 is really responsive to increased clock speeds. The slightly more decent tuning of the manufacturers results - depending on game and settings - in a performance boost of about 10 percent. If you overclock a card yourself anyway, you don't need to pay the higher price.
