Performance in Strategies
We use DirectX 11 mode for graphics cards that support it.
The overclocked Palit is inferior to the GeForce GTX 470 in terms of bottom speed at 1920x1080, making the gameplay less enjoyable. This must be due to the lack of computing resources. The GeForce GTX 460 1GB has fewer ALUs than the GeForce GTX 470 and the increased GPU clock rate cannot make up for that deficiency in this test.
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
Overclocking would be most useful for the GeForce GTX 460 1GB at 2560x1600, yet it is at that resolution that the card’s performance doesn’t grow up much. Even at a GPU frequency of 900 MHz the Palit couldn’t achieve a playable bottom speed with 4x FSAA. On the other hand, the expensive Radeon HD 5870 and GeForce GTX 570 cannot do that, either.
World in Conflict: Soviet Assault
The GeForce GTX 460 1GB improves its average frame rate at 2560x1600 when overclocked to 900 MHz, yet its bottom speed remains almost the same. Thus, such overclocking is of little use for owners of 30-inch monitors.
