As mentioned previously, we managed to overclock the ARES to 1003 MHz core and 1275 MHz memory speeds. Let's see how this overclock pans out when it comes to performance:
3DMark Vantage shows us about a 4% performance increase over the stock ARES when the card is overclocked. That's not enough to topple the GeForce GTX 480 cards in SLI.
In Crysis we actually see a slight decrease in average performance, but strangely enough the minimum frame rate is showing us that same 4% increase.
