In my situation one card is a SC, and the other a vanilla. The SC is base clocked at 876mhz and vanilla 837mhz. The boost clock for these is 928mhz and 876mhz respectively. That's fine, I'm cool with that. So then I set my GPU Clock Offset to +129 (both cards are synced up in Precision). Does that +129 add to the stock
number or the boost
number? I'm slightly confused here because when I run benchies/games, I'm seeing the boost clock read 1058mhz for the SC and 1019mhz for the vanilla? Shouldn't it read 1005mhz boost (SC) 966mhz boost (Vanilla)? Power is at 106% and temp at 90c by the way.
Sorry for all of the numbers, hopefully someone can follow.
I'm pretty sure that offset adds to the max boost the card will stop at.
Someone posted a youtube video a bunch of pages back, where an nvidia rep went over all the feature of the card and what the settings in evga precision actually do. Here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsuvlg8cuWA
I think about 45 mins is where he starts talking about it (I didn't watch the beginning). But from what I gathered, if you set priority to power, rather than temp, the card will never clock down under it's base clock. If you use temp priority it will go below the base clock, and do anything in it's power to remain at temp.
So if you have 2 different cards with different base clocks, they will throttle down to different clocks, and also boost to different clocks I guess (if given the same offset).
If you load up the bios in Kepler BIOS Tweaker you'll see the base clock setting, boost clock setting, and max boost clock setting (set at 1200). So I'm pretty sure the offset just applies to the boost setting, up to the limit of 1200 set in the bios. Just cause you offset it by X doesn't mean you'll reach it though, you'll be limited by temp and power.
