Is my GPU... Overperforming?

Just now, CroixFrozy said:

I mean anything beyond 1759 mhz theoretically shouldn't be possible? 

Wouldn't say IM-possible, as @Mateyyy said, it may be within it's capabilities to do so.

Can someone please explain. 

My Asus Rog Strix A6G 1060 6gb runs at a clock speed of 2025 mhz and memory speed of 4104 mhz. I haven't even overclocked it yet.

Assuming that's Unigine Heaven, for me it says my 2070S is running at something like 2190MHz even though in reality it's running at 2010-2040MHz.

Check with MSI Afterburner.

Looks like you are using ungine valley. That benchmark is very old and well it hasn't really been reporting correct info for years now. You should check with msi afterburner or the like.

Yep it's Unigine Valley. Afterburner says it's running at 2000 mhz tho. I mean in any case is that normal for a GTX 1060?

Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

2000 clock speed on Afterburner. Is that normal?

Oh so running at 2000 is not possible than?

Just having a look at all variants... 

 

EDIT:

Yup; ^^^^ is correct, max. "quoted" boost clock is 1759MHz; did you get the card new...?

Thanks man... Anyway MSI is showing 1900-2025 mhz clock speed while the GPU is hardcore working.

Nope it came in a PC I bought for 200$ used.

Edited above... does look like max. factory setting for boos clock is 1759MHz.

 

Was it a new card...?

Considering it's running at not even 60C, it's normal. Modern GPUs will boost themselves as long as they are within a certain power and thermal limit.

Just checked driver availability - that's the newest, so it's not that.

no it is very possible my 5700XT runs much over the max boost of 2030mhz

Modern NVIDIA GPU's can and will go past the boost clock, provided they have the thermal, power, and voltage headroom.


Main: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 2667 MT/s DDR4

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R

Laptop: Intel Core i5-3320M, 16 GB 1600 MT/s DDR3

@CroixFrozy - I'd say you lucked in/out... as appropriate.

Noice. Wait I'll create another topic because my RX 580 is autistic. 

High functioning and socially awkward...?  Interesting.

@CroixFrozy Not necessarily luck, but a product of the older benchmark. Typically older benchmarks don't work the core as hard, lowering power draw, which in turn opens up the power headroom. Try something more modern, and you'll see a different, likely lower number. These things run at different speeds for almost every task.

I thought MSI Afterburner is optimized and up to date? It shows those mhz numbers.

I was talking about the Unigine benchmark numbers.

Yeah well I said that MSI Afterburner is showing me the same numbers. (Identical at least)
