Overclocking

When it came down to overclocking the Gigabyte R9 270X Windforce, it was a bit of an adjustment for me. I’ve been used to overclocking on the Nvidia side of things with their unique clock speed “offsets”. With that I jumped into overclocking the Gigabyte R9 270X Windforce with our standard overclock testing using 3DMark 11 to confirm the overclocks. I started with the GPU clock speed testing. The stock speed was 1100MHz and I quickly jumped up to 120MHz. Sadly past that I ran into issues until I turned it back down to 1225MHz. For memory testing I went about things the same way, but coming from stock speed of 1400MHz it didn’t take long before I reached the limit that AMD’s overclock settings would let me push the memory too. At 1625MHz I was capped without pushing the real limits. With that I combined my results and ran through and confirmed that the card could do both at the same time without any issues as well.
