How "future-proof" is the GTX 560 Ti? - Page 5

post #41 of 47
I think you will be fine until the next xbox/playstations come out. most games these days are designed for xbox and playstation and ported to PC. There are exceptions, i am currently playing witcher 2 which is a big hog on my system. BF3 is supposed to be designed for PC and scaled down for the console versions... etc. but most blockbuster games like the second expansion pack for modern warfare known as modern warfare 3 (lol) and dragon age 3 will run absolutely fine.

heres a tip with your card, i have been trying to squeeze the most performance out of my card. i was running a 1050 core and like 2095 memory clock. i was stoked on getting a 1050 core, however sadly i didnt notice any improvement in crysis which is what i was playing when i was overclocking it (i tried to convince myself i did see a difference lol) but when i got witcher 2 i was getting 25-35 fps sometimes dipping to 20, max settings except ubersampling. i read somewhere to focus on the memory clock first. now im running a 2500ish memory clock and a 940 core clock. this alone gave me about 8-10 FPS gain over the 1050/2095 clock in witcher 2. so boost your memory clock as much as you possibly can before you boost the core clock. im going to do some tests now to see what the real difference was...


did some test in heaven benchmark.

Core - Memory - Avg FPS - Score
940 -- 2500 --- 45.1
1137
1050 - 2095 --- 41.4
1043

dont remember filter settings but they were both on 1080p with highest textures etc.

Thats is an interesting point thumb.gif

I guess too, it will depend on what your focus is with your GPU. If your a avid gamer, your advice is very good and should be taken onboard. If you are folding however, mem clock wont have much, if any effect. Shader clocks are what matters to folders. As such. I havent played with the mem clocks... thinking.gif I may have a lil play tonight and see if I can ramp that up a little too smile.gif

Addit: Raised my mem to 2300 Mhz and your right - more FPS thumb.gif Nicely done, thanks

It should max games at 1080p for about 2 years. After that you'll surely buy something new.
