ASIC - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Low ASIC=higher stock voltage and needs tad higher voltage to reach x-clocks

High ASIC=lower stock voltage and hits certain clock speeds at lower volts.

However, high ASIC-chips cant stand high voltages whereas low ASIC-chips can. Ultra high ASIC doesnt necessarily mean its gods gift, you might hit higher clocks more easily with lower ASIC because clock speeds scale better with higher volts....

Boost cards have low ASIC because they got stock voltage of 1,25V or something like that...

How far the card will OC is almost entirely dependent on the silicon lottery.

The ASIC% determines how it will handle voltage. Higher ASIC (low leakage) will need less volts, but scales worse with overvolting compared to low ASIC (high leakage), which requires more volts, but scales better with voltage. However, this does not give any indication of how far it will OC.

(Under conventional cooling that is. Subzero is asking for high leakage card that scales well with voltage, but this does not apply here when working with 1.3V max)
