K-Boost only for EVGA cards ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I just get the Asus GTX 660 and I wonder if K-Boost is only for EVGA cards ? I tried to make it on and off during gaming and found my GPU at 99% in both cases.

K-Boost i think works with any manufacture. smile.gif

JunkoXan, but why I did not find a difference with it on or off ?

all it does is force it's 3D base clock constantly in 2D mode not all that much more so noticing a difference could be very difficult for most, this Link should provide information on it, even EVGA Jacob talks about it.

yes I found this replay from Jacob at evga forum which really clear everything.

In most cases there is no effect on performance by enabling this, but there may be older applications, or some situations that see some benefit. (One example is 3DMark 2001)

Also it is helpful in extreme benchmarking as well.

Thanks JunkoXan
