Been dialing in the overclock on the new B&H XFX 5700 and it is looking very promising compared to the old card.
Seems to be rock stable at 2125core, 1850mem, 1200mv, +90% power. Netting me 5277 in superposition extreme.
I can get 2150 to work for a benchmark but gets unstable under some conditions, with a voltage boost I could do it but not worth it.
The old card maxed out at 2025 core @ 1200mv.
The really interesting thing is what the new card can do when I step down a little. Looks like I can step down to 1100mv and maintain 2050 stable for a score of 5100. A nice 40-50w savings for a mere ~4-5% performance loss. Fans don't even get above 1600rpm and I could limit them to less if I wanted.
EDIT, did some more testing and looks like ~1100mv is the sweet spot for this card, going down to 1000mv only netted mild gains in efficiency vs performance. Got a score of 4845 with a 1925 core clock at 1000mv. Nice for low end games but not really worth the tradeoff for higher end gaming.
Might see if I can go any lower but doubt I would actually use it. Overall very happy with the performance and results. Overclocking this card is much more as expected compared to the old one that would randomly crash, that card lost the silicon lottery for sure lol.
