Overclocking was predictable. Like almost all GTX 1080 Ti GPUs actual effective frequency topped out around 2,050MHz. The final overclock that was settled as read by GPU-Z was 1,604MHz core and 1,478MHz memory. It’s the lowest of all core clock results we’ve achieved so far, but there’s less than 50MHz in it.
For reference other GTX 1080 Ti GPUs achieved the following:
- Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition – 1,637MHz GPU, 1,500MHz memory
- MSI GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z – 1,622MHz GPU, 1,565MHz memory
- Palit GTX 1080 Ti Super JetStream – 1,657MHz GPU, 1,476MHz memory
3D performance gain from the overclock was approximately 8.2 per cent in 3DMark but will vary by workload.
