  1. I decided to an Xbox One X, I got a good deal on one during black Friday so thats nice. I checked out Digital Foundary as you suggested which did in fact sway my postion towards an X so thanks for that. I also already own a 360 and 360 games on disk from back in the day so that shouldn't be a problem.
  2. I'm debating wheather to buy an Xbox One S or Xbox One X. I want to play old Xbox 360 games on one of these new consoles for an increase in performance; mainly fps increase / stability. 1.) So my first question is, do non-enhanced Xbox 360 games run better in terms of fps / stability on an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, compared to the original Xbox 360? 2.) Does an Xbox One X run non-enhanced Xbox 360 games any better than the Xbox One S would? 3.) Is the difference between an enhanced and non-enhanced Xbox 360 game that different in terms of fps / stability? Any information to these three questions will be appreciated Thanks, GR412
  3. According to HW-Monitor on a stock card, I see about 1987 MHz, but when I apply my settings for an OC I see the card reach up to 2038 MHz. Which would imply I should not even bother boosting the core clock and just increase the power limit?
  4. I see, I didn't realised it all worked liked that. So based on what you've said i should just leave the voltage and vram at default and just boost the core clock, and apply more voltage if needed like CPU overcocking? And try and aim for as cool temperatures as i can? Also is GPU boost different for every card, like my card might GPU boost higher than another card? Or is it just the manual overclocks that are different on cards? I'm a little confused, but i had no idea GPU boost + a manual OC worked together like that. I just thought my OC overidden the GPU boost. Thanks for the insight.
  5. Well i'm on a Noctua U14s air cooler for cooling. As for the FPS readings I'm simply running in-game benchmarks on a number of games and seeing the average, min and max fps values after a few runs on each. I also tried looking into 3D mark but i'm not paying. Is there a free version anywhere? Also the way i'm increasing the clock is to simply use GPU Tweaks GUI and drag the slider up like they did on the guide I linked. I'm new to this so i really have no idea what i'm doing to be honest. And finally if this is helpful, on stock i notice the card runs at about 1987 MHz whereas when I apply my overclock, i see about 2038 MHz on HW-Monitor which does seem to be an increase.
  6. Hi there, I’ve recently tried to overclock my ASUS Strix 1080TI (OC Version) and I’ve managed to get an overclock on the GPU boost with +50 MHz and a memory boost of +400 MHz using ASUS GPU Tweak 2. Below are the settings I used based on this guide: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?93536-Strix-1080Ti-Overclocking-Guide as it recommends to increase the voltage to +100 and the power target to +120. GPU Boost Clock: + 50 GPU Voltage %: + 100 Memory clock: + 400 Power Target %: + 20 (to reach 120%) The issue is, this doesn’t appear to be a very high overlock with +50 MHz on the GPU boost, but I can’t go any higher without crashing. I’ve seen some people reach up to 100 MHz and beyond on the same card. I don’t know if I'm doing something wrong or is it simply the case of getting unlucky on the silicon lottery? The other thing is, even with this +50 MHz overlock, there doesn’t appear to be any performance gain at all on my games. I recorded pretty much the same FPS values before and after the overlock using built in benchmarks for various games. Could this zero performance gain be because the overlock is so small that it has no impact on FPS? Or could it be that GPU Tweak 2 is buggy and not actually applying the settings even though I can see the GPU clock reach a higher value than the default clock on HW-Monitor? Should I try another program like MSI afterburner? Or could it be something else? If it helps here are my system specs: CPU: Ryzen 1700X (overclocked to 3.9 GHz) Motherboard: ASUS Prime X370-Pro RAM: GSKILL FlareX DDR4-3200 16GB (8GBx2) CL14-14-14-34 1.35 Volt (running at 3200 MHz) GPU: ASUS Strix OC 1080TI PSU: Corsair RM 850W CPU Cooler: Noctua U14S with Noctua 140mm fan Case Fan Config: 3 x 140mm front intake and 1 x 140mm rear outtake Case: Fractal Define S Latest BIOS version Any ideas are welcome.
  7. Yeah i've disabled vsync / enabled ulimited fps to make sure the fps isn't capped to my refresh rate (144hz). Also i'm sure the clocks are higher after my overclock according to HW-Monitor. Before my overclock the clocks sat around the 1980 - 2000 MHz range, whereas now they sit at 2038 MHz. I applied these settings as my overclock: GPU Boost Clock: + 50 GPU Voltage %: + 100 Memory clock: + 500 Power Target %: + 20 (to reach 120%) I can't get any higher than + 50 without the gpu crashing. I'm starting to think that this overclock is not significant and maybe i've been unlucky on the silicon lottery, as i've seen a lot of people achieve + 100 on the gpu boost clock.
  8. I fixed it, it turns out you need to run the program all the time to apply the overclock. I can see the increase in MHz in HW-Monitor. However even with the overclock applied, there is no performance gain in fps on games at all. Which is even stranger.
  9. Thats funny, my last card of 2 weeks ago was a 670, which i replaced with my 1080 ti. I think i sorted the issue anyway. It turns out i need to run the gpu tweak software all the time to apply the overclock. But even so it gives zero performance boost to fps in games which i don't understand.
  10. I managed to sort it by just running the gpu tweak software all the time. It applies the overclock and I can see the increase in Mhz in HW-Monitor. The only problem is that even when this overclock is applied it gives no performace boost in regard to fps in games at all which is strange.
  11. Well i did hear that was the overclockers choice. But it turns out i just need to run gpu tweak all the time for the overlock to apply, which is a bit shit. And even when the overclock has applied there is no fps increase in games, so i think i'm wasting my time anyway.
  12. Hi there, i'm using the ASUS GPU Tweak 2 on my ASUS Strix 1080ti (OC edition) and i've tried testing the default gpu mode, GPU Tweaks built in preset OC mode and my own manual overclock on the gpu. All three of these gpu settings changed in the GPU Tweak software yield the exact same results in both games and benchmarking software in terms of average fps values. Which indicates to me that overclocking my gpu does nothing to improve performance or that the GPU Tweak software is not applying settings. Now my question is, does the GPU Tweak software have to be running at all times, (checking the setting that says start GPU Tweak at boot time) or can I close the program and not have to run it all the time and after a reboot it will still apply my overlock settings still? If it helps these are the preset OC mode settings and my manual overclock settings. ASUS GPU Tweak 2 Preset OC mode settings: GPU Boost Clock: + 25 GPU Voltage %: + 0 (default) Memory clock: + 90 Power Target %: + 0 (default) Manual Overlock Settings: GPU Boost Clock: + 50 GPU Voltage %: + 100 Memory clock: + 500 Power Target %: + 20 (to reach 120%) Thanks, GR412.
  13. I will do, thanks for your insight anyway. This isn't an obvious issue at all.
  14. Temperture doesn't go above 70 °C during the benchmark, and here is a full list of my system: CPU: Ryzen 1700X Motherboard: ASUS Prime X370-Pro RAM: GSKILL FlareX DDR4-3200 16GB (8GBx2) CL14-14-14-34 1.35 Volt GPU: ASUS Strix OC 1080TI PSU: Corsair RM 850W CPU Cooler: Noctua U14S with Noctua 140mm fan Case Fan Config: 3 x 140mm front intake and 1 x 140mm rear outtake Case: Fractal Define S Latest BIOS version
  15. Well I just want to see if i can get any fps boost. I'm pretty new to this, but i've just overclocked my cpu and i would assume you might as well do the gpu as well.
