Adding some frequency to an already-fast card
The Overclock card is
identical to the reference
with respect to aesthetics. Both use the NVIDIA-provided
cooler which does a good job at keeping the underlying GPU cool.
The reference card ships
with a core
speed of 633MHz, shaders at 1,404MHz, and GDDR3 memory at 2,268MHz.
Inno3D has purchased speed-binned GPUs and memories, at a premium, and
then qualified them to run at 670MHz/1,474MHz/2,350MHz - a decent
overclock on all fronts that should lead to a 3-5 per cent improvement
over the vanilla card.
Other than a difference in
clocks and sticker on the fan the card really is the same as a myriad
A couple of six-pin PCIe
power connectors will be needed to power the beast.
Inno3D adds a touch of
gold-plated ports and connectors, intimating that the very same PCB is
the iChiLL range Coincidentally enough, that card
runs at identical frequencies
, too. Same card, different
A reasonably-overclocked GeForce GTX 275, Inno3D's Overclock model
bridges the gap between the GTX 275 and 280s. We'll see if it is fast
to fend off a range of also-pre-overclocked Radeon HD 4890s.
