I did it the lazy way before, aka lower the power and temperature target to minimum, got about 60W range as well.

What do you use to undervolt? ASUS Tweak can do it on STRIX? Can it do it on other cards as well? MSI AB, EVGA XOC, GW ET, can't do it, only later two can add voltage.

It is crazy considering an undervolted 480 runs at a 1060ish power levels but undervolted or power limited 1060 could run from PCIe power alone lol.

I use custom curve in AB, find voltage you can run and just draw a straight line from it till 1.075V with clocks that are stable - you're good to go.
post #153 of 978
Ah I see, it chooses the lowest voltage possible when it is a line say 1.00V 2.0GHz, 1.05V 2.0GHz it chooses 1.00V to run at 2.0GHz.
While it does reduce power and that's nice it doesn't do anything crazy for me to drop by 60W lol like lowering the power limit and having the whole thing do it by itself. What are you running that you get only 64W with 0.975V 2063MHz?

Does the clock/volt lock in AB even work? The 'L' hotkey, it shows in the graph but clocks don't change according to the lock at all.

I'm at 950mV and still running the same clock as it did with 1030-1050mV. Ok 944mV locked out the 3D app.

That read was per GTAO. Unsure what the lock does, it isn't really necessary as most Pascal cards can do 950-975mV 2Ghz+ easily. You can just blindly put it in and chances are it will work. It also drops your temps like crazy, I may consider just going passive with fans at 0% because with fans on I struggle to heat the GPU past 55C :/
post #155 of 978
Yeah there is a big variance in these new 14nmm and 16nm GPUs :/ Some are great and some not really.
Mine is pretty crappy. The lock works, hit L, then apply and it shows up finally. The OverBoost 3.0 is even a bigger PITA when using the curve to OC as it automatically changes the curve and all settings in curve are offsets not hard frequency-volt pairs but desired offset-volts frown.gif
I never have luck in the lottery.

The curve setting is too crude and changes by itself with temperature which can create random steps... so when one smooths it out, temperature changes and the whole curve changes as a result and new steps are made, it's like a never ending story. Nvidia needs to give us more control over the curve and temperature behavior, at best be able to define clock-pairs along with temperature curve and hard max limits. But we might sooner see an automatic OC from Nvidia than them giving us that, all they need to do is raise the aggressiveness of the overboost 3.0 and they get automatic dynamic OC, it works now but it runs a tad low conservative.

I would have exchanged mine gladly but there was no stock and prices went up... just not worth it to try luck with another card.

You can actually set curve under load to make sure it doesn't slip up vs stock set points. Curve is kinda pain, but once you get a hang of it - you can work with it. Its definitely not spooky scary driver.

Speaking of lottery, I've lost mine with Memory, can't get me ass past +585 frown.gif
post #157 of 978
2012MHz @ 70C+ (+175), 9.1GHz (+550). So you didn't lose anything tongue.gif

Yes I tweak it under full load and heat up, but then if I manage to drop a few C in temperature it can randomly make new steps in the curve, even jump up in speed because of it and crash as a result...
Setting offsets is really the worst Nvidia could have come up with.
The curve is messy and one can't even use the visual representation of it, it would be better if it was a simple table.
AMD has this better now, when the Wattman doesn't crash that is, and it's in the driver GUI no need for AB or other 3rd party crap.

Seems like there can be big differences between lottery luck on 480s and 1060s. Some really do run magically with low power.

Mate who has a 1070 and the same stutter issue I had told me the new graphics drivers don't have the issue..

So I installed.. I don't have the stutter anymore but cannot get any form of stable OC.. (not even +50 on core)

Anyone else having problems with latest drivers?

Yes the OC ability seems to go down with 372.90 a little but then the performance doesn't. It's like they utilize the hardware more or something. The situation isn't any brighter on AMD, performance varies per driver but usually the latest is the best but not always the fastest to use.
It's as if it's easier to find the instability with 372.90 where as the high OC on older driver would crash but not so soon.

Hmm very interesting..


Well after a bit of messing around I managed to get it to OC again, I just need to increase voltage now where I didn't before.
I'm not seeing any increased heat at all though, in fact its cooler O.o
Not too sure exactly what the deal is.. but its performing as well as it did before, but with a lower clock.
