Asus Strix 1080Ti maxed out?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I just upgraded from the Asus Strix 1080 A8G to the Asus Strix 1080Ti 011G overclocked model. This thing is a beast and all but I truly expected to be able to overclock the card a little... I've had plenty of experience with overclocking GPU's and in this case I find it hard to believe but this one seems maxed from the factory. So far, all it takes to crash Heaven 4.0 is a 100mhz increase to core clock; that's with fans @ 80% and staying under 50c with the power limit @ 120. Has anyone else tried to overclock this monster? So far the "stock" clock is all I can hit but I understand that it is the OC model...

copy the OC settings here and see if it works. and use the same software as the one they use. ---msi AB-

I was shocked too, I expected the card to be at 1708Mhz as the specs shows, but when I plugged in the card and opened Afterburnet, it was at 1960Mhz aprox already, so I just had to do a +90Mhz to reach 2050Mhz.

I'm quite confused, really. Did it overclock itself? I was expecting it to be at 1708Mhz and then overclock it to 2050Mhz myself.

Thats gpu boost for you, card clocks itself..

Looks like your card went into OVERDRIVE without telling you. I would call ASUS and demand a refund. biggrin.gif
But seriously, that is GPU boost for you. The 1708 should be the lowest card will ever get if you run it at 100 C and start cooking eggs on it. Otherwise, it will keep operating higher than 1708 in all cases.

Thanks for a good place to start. I haven't pushed voltage since the GTX680 lol.... not sure I want to break in the Ti like that just yet but who knows. It's my day off tomorrow and I may get bored.

Woke up this morning and increased my core clock speed by a smaller margin; 65mhz in Afterburner. I ran Heaven 4.0 and got a slightly higher score.

On factory OC:



+65mhz core, 120% power limit, fans @ 80%:

Most of these 3rd party cards with beefy coolers will be running close to maxed out. They'll boost higher than specified. The boost clock they advertise is a clock that should be guaranteed. When you whack on 120% power limit and the card runs cool inside a good case, it'll boost higher. Close to it's max potential.

That seems to be the case for sure. Thanks for the response.
