GPU Memory Clock Offset

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What exactly does increasing the memory clock do on a graphics card?

On my 680 I easily ran 7000mhz, just because. On my Titan im at 6200mhz. I cant seem to find clear information as to how this relates to performance.

Thanks!!!

Well think of what increasing your RAM frequency does, accelerates the speed of how the CPU interacts with the other parts of the computer and the applications you are running. So increasing the speed of your GPU's memory will increase the ability of how the GPU is able to interact with the other parts of the computer.

well what i do as a std i change the gpu from auto to 210 in the bios.. if you do nto know what you are doing, DO NOT TOUCH as you will kill it in a flash.

but there are many ways areound overclocking cards that are locked from the factory

LOL

you just need to know how.

Yeah, I don't know how and since my games run perfectly fine, I'm not tinkering with the bios.

hey guys im also curious about this, so ok i know that its best or preffered when overclocking core clock to try keep the clock speed at the same rate, i for example have tri 680 classys which i have had to oc each card individually to find the lowest clocking card then matched the better performing card to that of the lowest one thus matching all three's core clocks,

but does this same rule apply to the memory clock or can i oc the memory clocks of each card to what ever each card can dish out ?

thanks smile.gif

No, I have 2 different Titans from EVGA and they have different base and boost clocks. Running at different clocks does not affect performance in a negative way, you will actually benefit from running each card at its max stable oc, even if its not the same rather than downclock to match the weakest link.(run on sentence) lol


Does your sniper board bottlneck your tri sli set up? I heard plx causes some latency, not sure how much.

hey dude,

to be honest man im not sure what PLX" means even lol, but as far as benching and games like bf3 i think im doing ok i don't see a bottleneck in terms of fps, for example i set my fps counter to limit at 144 as my monitor/s are 144hz but if i un tick that then i hit about 150ish avg so gpus i think..well for me lol....seem to be ok, my only short coming so far has been my ram as the g1 sniper 3 is rated for 1600mhz sticks but i chucked in 1866 and it seems to handle the XMP profiles very well lol

hey dude just so im not confused did you mean i should oc each cards memory on their own or core clocks on their own? or both lol?

cheers dude smile.gif

PLX is basically a way to get more pci e lanes on your board, however it add latency.

I ask because I have a huge cpu bottleneck on my system and can't figure out if its motherboard related.
