Overclocking PerformanceIf you were feeling a bit bummed about the GeForce GTX 560 Ti's performance so far, this is where things start to get interesting. We were extremely successful overclocking the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti when using the Nvidia System Tools. The GPU frequency was boosted by 23%, while the memory also happily received a 25% speed bump.
Because the GeForce GTX 560 Ti was nearing the limits of the CPU at 1920x1200 in Call of Duty: Black Ops we only saw a minor 7% rise in performance, but this did put the GTX 560 Ti on par with the GTX 570.
Crysis Warhead is a GPU dependent game and our overclock provided an impressive 24% frame rate boost at 1920x1200.
Again, we saw a nice 22% performance increase when testing with Battlefield Bad Company 2 at 1920x1200. The overclock certainly delivered the results we wanted as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti was able to surpass the pricier GTX 570.
