Overclocking

As we would expect from a ROG MARS, the card is already clocked to very nearly its limit out of the box. Overclocking with the ASUS GPU Tweak utility is easy, but you have to make sure that you sync the cores otherwise the new clock speed isn’t applied. 

Once you’ve done this we got 150MHz extra from the GPU cores and a surprisingly low 50MHz extra on the GDDR5. Maybe Sony have hoovered up all the good GDDR5 on the planet with the PS4.

Temperatures

Despite having two GPUs on the same PCB, the ASUS cooler keeps things well under control with a maximum of 78°. More importantly it’s extremely quiet, bordering on silent.
