Gaming Performance Page 1

On this page and the next, we are going to look at how overclocking has improved game performance by overclocking. We will simply compare by apples-to-apples the default clock speed to our highest overclock as shown on the previous page.

Red Dead Redemption 2

We ran the in-game benchmark three times and reported the average of the three runs for Red Dead Redemption 2. We used 2560×1440 as the resolution and manually set all in-game settings to custom levels that approximate the “high” selections. At stock speeds, Red Dead Redemption 2 achieved an average of 53.2 frames per second. Overclocking increased performance by 10.2%, boosting the average frames per second to 58.6.

Metro Exodus

GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER Overclocked in Metro:Exodus

We ran the benchmark utility three times and reported the average of each of the three runs for Metro: Exodus. We used 2560×1440 as the resolution and the Ultra default settings. The Extreme settings were simply too much for the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER to handle at 1440p. It turned in 48.3 frames per second at stock clocks and overclocking yields a boost to 53.6 frames per second, a 11% increase.

The Division 2

We ran the in-game benchmark three times and reported the average of the three runs for The Division 2. We used 2560×1440 as the resolution and the highest possible in game settings. The stock performance turned in an average of 57 frames per second while overclocking provided an average of 64.6 frames per second, a 13.3% increase.
