Overclocking the BFG 9600 GT OCX
Our final test of the BFG 9600 GT OCX was to evaluate what additional overclocking headroom the card had to offer. Using NVIDIA's nTune software, we managed to add 8.25% to the GPU clock, resulting in a 60MHz boost. With the GDDR3 memory, we managed to increase 9% or 88MHz (176MHz DDR).
While both the GPU and Memory overclocked over 8%, the gains in performance did not scale as high. At 1280x1024, the scores jumped 3.5% while at 1600x1200 the difference was closer to 1.5%, a small reward for our efforts.
