This would be cool for games that have super crappy optimizations that let the clocks drop to 2d speeds. Only game off the top of my head I can think of is SWTOR.

Trade off between boost lock and power efficiency. Seeing that one of the major touted advantages of those cards...it's odd although options are always nice.

I saw that article earlier...interesting stuff for benching and some gaming. 'Boost lock' reminds me of the MSI Afterburner fixed 'voltage curve' approach

You can "lock" a maximum power state on msi ab, nothing like boost lock though.

Unless you adjust every boost point manually?

The Ctrl-F then Ctrl-L feature will lock core clock in AB on the curve, and it also allows selectable voltage on the X axis.

Is this even useful? It doesn't stop clock throttling, all it does is stop the card dropping to powersave states and disables the boost offset right?

I'm gonna try this out, see if I can squeeze some more performance.

so it's just "K-Boost" with the limitation of needing an EVGA card removed?

switched from Precision X to Afterburner when I moved from my EVGA 950 to an Asus 1060 and lost the ability. Curve editor works fine though otherwise.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

I gave this new version a test drive. It is buggy as hell, not recommended. Very odd behavior including screen freeze (black screen), weird colors after clicking apply, plus I was not able to lock a core clock over 1935 MHz. Back to AB I go.
