XFX GTX 285 Black Edition - 11. OC and Consumption

Review: Still the fastest single-GPU Geforce




Overclocking:

As far as overclocking goes, XFX GTX 285 Black Edition is up there with the best. Not only do you get a 6% faster card out of the box but we managed to push it even further to 720MHz, which is 11% faster than on reference cards. Far Cry 2 obviously benefited from this and the card managed 10% better results with the core at 720Mhz and the memory at 1380MHz (2760MHz effectively).


Power-Consumption:

The card is quiet in 2D, and the same goes for 3D but only until the card heats up more seriously and it does tend to get a bit loud. Maximum recorded temperatures  were at 87°C.
