Maybe like 1.5% in the most.
Yeah for superposition benchmark specifically.
But in the great majority of games, like 0.5%. Games don't run you to the roof with power draw during the entire duration of the game. My card will do Witcher 3 at 2088 Mhz and not drop due to power 95% of the time.
That small fraction of 5% I'll drop to 2075 or 2063. So you can say that it'd probably make a 0.05% difference in performance even if you compared the average fps.
This is what makes me resist doing the shunt mod, it'll be all this effort and money for tiny gains. It would have been worth to do it when I installed my AIO initially, but I don't know if it's worth doing now.Edited by SlimJ87D - 4/12/17 at 8:40am
