I personally crunch data and some applications favor a 0.57 ratio and others need a higher core and slower memory.

Would you know by chance what is best for gaming? I normally don't do much more then gaming that is graphical.
Thanks, yodazb

Core is more influential in games...

Thanks, yodazb


The asic % is a measurement of a chips leakage level. All chip leak and what that refers to is voltage leaking past the gates when idle and this translates to heat. In an ideal world we would all want very low leakage because that means there is less voltage loss, silicon runs cooler since it needs less voltage to perform the same block of work, and it end up saving expenses for everybody in the supply chain.

However for overclocking you don't always want the highest asic % aka low leakage chips. For watercooling middle range asic is ideal for the voltage scaling and more safety due to leakage losses. FOr extreme cooling you want very high leak chips because that leakage allows you to run very high voltage when the LN2 alters the silicon on a molecular level in essence putting them in better alignment or to that effect.

Best explanation I have seen, covered all the needed spots on this one. +1 rep
