Default Re: AMD Radeon HD 7970 Benchmark Thread.

So, got my waterblocks in, decided to test a 1200mhz overclock in a few benchmarks. 1200mhz is about a 30% overclock from 925mhz, so you would expect to see at least a 30% gain. Well, in BF3 I saw a massive 28% gain in average FPS, and 34% minimum fps gain.

RTFM...

Open MSIAfterburner.cfg, find "UnofficialOverclockingMode", set to 2. Also, make sure you have beta 11.
