Benchmarks: Metro 2033, StarCraft II
Results in Metro 2033 were decent, but nothing spectacular: the factory overclocked card was 6% faster than the reference unit, while the manually tweaked card gained another 8%.
StarCraft II responds well to overclocking with the average frame rate climbing from 42fps to 49fps, an impressive 17% performance increase. It didn't stop there as our own overclock yielded another 8%, making the GTX 580 SOC faster than the Radeon HD 6970 in Crossfire.
