Club3D HD 5850 Overclocked Edition tested - 9. Overclocking and Consumption

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Nonreference cooled, quiet and overclocked











Club3D HD 5850 Overclocked Edition is a factory overclocked card (the GPU runs at 760MHz, the GDDR5 memory at 1050MHz) that scores about 4% better compared to the reference HD 5850. If that is not enough to strike your chord, know that the GPU can easily be overclocked to 850MHz. This is the maximum we managed without having to meddle with voltages, but note that maximum overclocks may vary from car to card. At 850MHz and the memory at 1100MHz (4400MHz effectively), we scored about 7% better results in Far Cry 2.

The Club3D HD 5850 OC Edition’s cooler is inaudible in 2D mode, and although it can be heard in 3D mode it’s still the quietest one we’ve had a chance to test on HD 5850 cards.

Thermals are pretty good as well – we measured about 34°C in idle and about 67°C in 3D.

Club3D HD 5850 OC Edition’s consumption is about 28W higher when in 3D, compared to reference HD 5850, but it should be expected with an overclocked GPU and memory.
