Disclaimer: The results we achieve here are only indicative and absolutely do not guarantee any similar level of performance. We are often seeded products before they launch, and we cannot guarantee that they haven't been pre-selected as good overclocking parts. Either way, a sample size of one is not even close to useful when it comes to assessing how good one graphics card is versus another at overclocking, as individual differences between dies tend to be the bigger factor. We are only interested in seeing the peak speeds available from each card out to better understand the impact of core/memory frequency shifts in games and to see how well the cooling solution handles the increased load. To get a sense of where you "should" be aiming with a given GPU or card, we recommend you collect data like this from multiple sources to determine a rough average.
We use the Catalyst Control Centre to overclock by setting the highest stable limits we could. That means a 2,700MHz boost clock, memory at 17.2Gbps, and 15 per cent more power.
