Testing:

In order to find out how the Ladybird GTX 285 performs, I'll put it through OCC's benchmarking suite. This consists of both game and synthetic benchmarks, which will both stress the card and show its true performance. The games used are current games, that most gamers would at some point play. All comparison cards were tested at their stock settings without any changes. The exception to this is the NVIDIA cards, as they had PhysX disabled for the Vantage benchmark. The Ladybird GTX 285 will be tested at both its stock and overclocked settings.

Overclocked Settings:

  • Ladybird GTX 285 786MHz/1465MHz/1728MHz

Overclocking the Ladybird GTX 285 was extraordinarily unproblematic. There wasn't any overclocking software included with the card, so I used MSI's Afterburner to push the card to its limits. I started off by increasing the core clock by 5MHz and running the 3DMark Vantage GPU test to insure stability. I then did the same for the shader and memory clocks, respectively. I didn't hit any instability until the shader clock hit 1730MHz. I then decreased the shader clock by an increment of 1MHz until stability had been restored. I then did the same for the core clock and the memory clock until their maximum speeds had been reached. Once this had been done, I proceeded to run through each of OCC's benchmarks to ensure full stability. As it turns out, the core clock still needed to be decreased a few MHz. The end result was a shader clock of 1728MHz, a memory clock of 1465MHz, and a core clock of 786MHz.
