I'm curious to find out how GPU Boost 3.0 and throttling works this time around, it's hard to find information.
Maxwell throttled back clocks and voltages at a mere 68c.
Also, things that previously required a BIOS edit to accomplish are now capable in OC utilities.
You are able to configure GPU Boost 3.0's voltage to frequency curve in EVGA XOC for example, seems neat and literally 0 people are talking about it for some reason.
I can't find anything on whether or not GPU Boost 3.0 is an improvement, or more restrictive, whether throttling is enforced early or customizable or anything.
Nobody is talking about it yet everyone has to deal with it when overclocking so I don't understand.
Guess I'll find out...

Is there true?! FE's OC better than the other AIBs?
If people are able to getting modded BIOS working to OC better, I didn't get a card that will benefit too greatly from it since it's only a single 8-pin is what I'm saying.
It would be more beneficial to have a 8+6pin which could have a BIOS mod to actually take advantage of the extra power, which I won't have.
I didn't mean the FE's OC better than all the AIB's, I mean they all have equal overclocking capability. Custom AIB's with super coolers and more power pins do not overclock any better, they are equal.
Which isn't how things should be, but it's how it is.
The MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X with its 8+6 and superior cooler overclocks no better than an FE.Edited by Hunched - 6/25/16 at 8:30pm
