I will see if GPUz lets me extract tonight. Although when i was messing around with the voltage slider and power limit yesterday the card did not go any higher than 1093mv. I'm pretty sure the Bios you are after is not on retail Asus 1080 cards and was "leaked" by someone on the Asus overclocking team.

The voltage slider is an offset up to +100mv, not percentage points, just an FYI on that.

That makes sense, thanks. I'm used to the 12mv slider that my 770 had lol. I also prefer afterburner so I'm glad I'm not missing out by sticking with it.

I knew it was in there somewhere! Thanks!

Damn dude, I'm in canada and my ambients don't get much lower than 18c in the winter lol.

So any official word regarding this issue? Any fix promises for coming drivers? Any acknowledgement by nVidia of the issue?

Also has anyone with high DPC-Latency checked my suggestion from a few pages back and seen if it helps?

Using Process Lasso might help.

This might actually confirm my theory or at least add evidence to it, I was the first one (that I know of) to mention this across multiple forums:

From nVidia on the geforce forums (https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/941579/geforce-1000-series/gtx-1080-high-dpc-latency-and-stuttering/16/):

Thank you. No need to submit further survey feedbacks on this issue. We believe we understand the root cause and will provide a fix through a future driver. At this time I do not have an ETA but as soon as I have further information, I will share with everyone.

While the voltage does appear to be limited by the bios, I'm not sure if I would make the leap to assume it's because they want to limit performance. There seems to be a real voltage limit on this process/architecture and it could very well be that the chips that become 1070's couldn't cut the mustard even at 1.2 something.

Yeah maybe. But I bet there will always be a few chips that can cut the mustard that slipped in. Golden chips or lucky ones (whatever we call them). And giving just a bit of extra headroom would not hurt in that case. It wouldn't hurt in any case. Temperatures are very safe, especially in the case of the MSI Cards with their custom cooling. I think I summed it up well in my last comment on page 2.

That will most likely be the case further down the road when there are plenty of chips to go around.

lol you weren't, man.

https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/4lwysn/gtx_1080_hard_limit_at_125_volts/


except they found more importantly, that the hardware is hard capped at 1.25v. meaning software/bios wise, they are all limited to ~1.1v. which is always assumed in many cases with stock bios, just varied values.


all this comes down to is requiring a modded bios with unlocked voltage. simply put.

Just get MSI Afterburner (download the latest BETA from Guru3D that will work with the GTX 1070).

I started by increasing Power Limit percentage all the way to the maximum, which is 126%

After that, skip core overclocking and go down to memory clock, and start increasing it by +100 increments and clicking apply. Get to around + 500 Mhz on MEMORY (make sure you're not increasing core clock).

Then go run Firestrike and see if you're having any issues with it or not (like artifacts or crashing)... If not then go back and increase CORE clock (but don't expect to get much here).

Keep using Firestrike to test for quick stability... ONCE you're completely finished do a lot of other stress testing and MONITOR your temperatures.

So right now I have;

Power Limit 126%
Core Clock +106 MHz
Memory +666MHz

The only thing that scares me about overclocking the ram so much is if the ram modules start getting hot when fans aren't spinning.

I use a custom fan curve that prevents fans from going to 0 speed, keeping them at 40% minimum since they're so damn silent I can't even hear them until they go higher:

If afterburner is to be believed, the ram clocking down when not under load the same way the GPU is.
