Does that 53Mhz extra gpu speed make a difference?

#1BansheeNTDmodePosted 8/2/2013 10:15:01 AM
I overclock my pc so i know it will make it faster but also strains the card and heatsinks get hotter. But it feels like that extra gpu is kind of not that much of an increase.
Will it give more crisper graphics or frames per second by much?

Not really. nothing noticeable or notable, anyway.

Although any sort of boost is welcome.

Actually, it can because thats about the same overclock I use on my GTX560m which allows me to run smoother frames on many titles. Its not going to be a dramatic difference but it does help when you are pushing settings one at a time.

On the flip side, that should tell you just how much of a difference there will be between a PS4 and an Xbox One.

Maybe it should be renamed to Xbox One Eighty, they've done so many u turns...

Increasing GPU speed isn't a u-turn.

It might not sound like much to some if you compare it to unoptimised PC components and software but the gain exponentially increases in a closed system environment with dedicated dev tools designed to maximise every last piece of power.

It's significant enough to make it worth doing .

Probably not a big difference, but devs could probably squeeze a few extra frames out of their games with this increase. I'm not a tech expert obviously, but I'm hoping that since this rumour is true, the other rumour about a 4GB increase in RAM turns out true as well. THAT would make a big difference.

Really though, if you were already getting an X1, this is good news. Any upgrade to a purchase you've already commited to is just gravy on the cake..
