With the GPU voltage increased from 0.996 V to 1.167 V, we raise the Gigabyte GV-N470SO-13I’s core clock to 800 MHz and the shader clock to 1600 MHz. The result is a stable overclock. And, from what we’ve seen in the past, this is more than you can usually expect out of a reference GeForce GTX 470.
3DMark Vantage shows how overclocking boosts performance over the reference card by 19%.
In Crysis, the overclock really separates the Gigabyte GV-N470SO-13I from the reference GeForce GTX 470’s performance, leapfrogging into GeForce GTX 480 territory, as demonstrated in our Factory Overclocked High-End Graphics Cards review.
