What does "OC Edition" mean ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone,

 

So I bought a new MSI GTX 760 OC Edition one week ago and it works perfectly, it can run any game with a very decent frame rate (except Watch Dogs \0/)

As the title says I was wondering what does the OC Edition sticker on it mean ? Does it mean Overclockable or Overclocked or something else ?

Thank you for your future answers.

Overclocked Edition* It is factory overclocked further then other cards in its series.

 

P.S. You can overclock factory overclocked cards further then the factory set them at ;)

Thank you for your answers, so I guess overclocking it more than that won't bring much performances and isn't recommended ?

Overclocking more will bring performance, but nothing groundbreaking. If you're not comfortable with it, don't do it.

That's all I needed to know, thanks :)

^ This, if you are new to overclocking, take baby steps and do research before trying. You can severally damage the card if not careful enough.

OC Means that the product comes factory overclocked, it's set to run at higher clock speeds rather than base frequencies. The perfomance hit is noticable as you get from 5-20 frames per second bump or even more on every game compared to standard clockspeed gameplay,

 

Don't worry, weather it'll damage the components earlier, the hardware around the structure is tuned for the boosted perfomance & it will last as the same as the normal version.

Usually it's what's already been said above, the only advantage to this is that with some vendors, these OC edition cards are slightly higher binned, so picking one up instead of one at factory clock speeds could yield higher over-clocks. *COULD*
