Default EVGA GTX 260 FTW Edition Review

With a factory overclocked video card there is usually not too much left on the table for the enthusiast to gain on top of the speeds the manufacturer has pulled from the silicon. The stock (If you can call it that) speeds of the FTW edition GTX 260 are 666MHz on the GPU core and 1107MHz on the memory. These "Factory Overclocked" speeds are already 90 and 107 MHz higher than the "stock" specifications. It looks as though EVGA left a little on the table when it came to the clock speeds. I was able to ratchet the GPU core up another 96MHz and the memory another 101MHz. This brings the total overclock from the stock settings on the GPU core to 186MHz and 208MHz on the GDDR3 memory. Both of these clock speed increases are huge. By comparison, I was only able to pull 110MHz out of the GPU core and 147MHz out of the memory on the GTX280 I recently reviewed. I guess the EVGA GTX 260 earned its FTW wings today!
