Overclocking on the GTX 650Ti proved to be a fun experience as the card just kept scaling upwards and delivered a 30% boost in core clock speed to 1228MHz or 303MHz over the baseline 925MHz. If the core can clock like this it should leave room for the AIB partners to really deliver some highly clocked non-reference designs to go along with some of the excellent cooling solutions seen on the first page. Without the benefit of GPU Boost the clock speeds were easily set without having to worry where the clock speeds would eventually fall to as the power limits were reached. Memory overclocking was not as great at 1493MHz or just under the rated speed for the Hynix modules used on this board. Even so the modules delivered a 10+% or 143MHz boost in speed to 1493MHz. By tweaking the clock speeds I saw gaming performance improvements across the whole of the testing suite that dropped in the 20 to 28%+ range. Pretty solid increases and overclocking stones for a little mini-me sized video card if I do say so myself."
