Diamond Multimedia HD7790 Review - Overclocking

Overclocking:

 As we can see BFBC2 is playable at 60FPS, but I don't think BF3 can be played at its default settings, perhaps at a lower resolution or lower settings, however BF3 is also pretty CPU intensive and if I used Ivy Bridge I am sure I would hit closer to 60FPS. 

Now we can check out some of the software and overclocking:

 Overclocking the 7790 is actually pretty easy, however because of BIOS restrictions and voltage restrictions which are typical of most 7790s I am limited to 1600mhz max memory and 1200mhz max core clocks. I also cannot change the voltage for the core. However I can control some of the power limits and fan. I also tried MSI's Afterburner, however it didn't allow any extra headroom.
