Evga rtx 2080 ti is not holding a consistent clock speed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have my Evga 2080 ti xc ultra overclocked to 120 mhz. My GPU will hit 2100 mhz but start to down clock until it hits 1935 mhz. It mostly bounces around and for the most part stays between 2025 and 2055 mhz. Power limit is set to 130%. Any idea why the clock speed is moving around so much? I've got it on a ek water block, never going above 60c. 

 

Other specs. 

I7 8700k 4.9 ghz

Custom loop with 360mm rad

Evga 850 watt psu

32 GB 3866 ram

it should be power limited, that's just how the new cards work. Seems normal

Really? Well that sucks. My old gtx 1080 ti that I sold could hold steady at 2065 mhz. Never changed clock speed. I do see voltage ramping down to 980 mv from 1015 a lot. That would make sense.

ya a few things they did with this card, it's heavily power limited, then temp limited if airflow/cooling sucks. Voltage slider is a placebo, max oc performance difference between the ref pcb models and something like the ftw3 is only 3-5% (something like the difference between 2025 and 2175).

Well I'm pretty disappointed. Cant believe how poorly mine overclocks. Really I dont think overclocking even matters on these cards. It boost to what ever it wants to anyway it seems.

Bro I got a bad 2080 msi trio 

it’s not even power limited it’s voltage limited and I have to run it at constant 1.093v to get it over 2000mhz

How are you getting the voltage that high? I think I've got the same problem. But it seems voltage control on afterburner doesn't do anything.

What the actual Beep!?

 

Seriously you've got the earliest consumer grade silicon cards of the highest and greatest out there and your complaining that between them 3rd party card vendors and NVIDIA have basically eked out everything the Silicon can do without going into dangerous territory.

 

News at 11. This is performance 101 for new releases.

Everyone says it does nothing because they don’t no what it does

so In Short pushing the slider up unlocks the chip from 1.065 to 1.093v

 

now ur thinking my card only uses 1.03 or what ever it runs at now 

 

how ever to get it at that voltage u now need to open up ur curve 

u will see that from 1.0v to 1.1 the curve is flat 

 

click on the intersection that is at 1.093 

 

and rais the clock in The curve and it will the set it to run at that voltage

 

basixally if u have a flat line in there it will try and use he lower voltage for he same clocks but if u just raise the 1.093 intersection and u max the voltage slider the card will run at 1.093 

 

it it took me ages to work this out and I’m talking days 

 

please give it a try

 

my card runs at 1.093 underload now :)

It just boggles my mind that someone can be disappointed by a card because they're trying to compare the peak clock rates of 2 different series of cards....lets just completely negate the fact its the fastest card ever created and smokes the one you're comparing it too in almost everything.... 

 

Especially on a card so scarce most of us are still waiting to try and even get a back order in....

It's my only hobby man, I just fiddle with pcs and parts, not that I want that extra 5 fps, I just like pushing it as far as I can without toasting it.

Ehhh you might have sounded a good bit less "WTH Man" if you'd stated that up front ;). That said given the newness i'd be amazed if the silicon isn't allready near safe limits.

That's GPU Boost 3.0 messing it up, try actually finding the best balance on your power limit, Pascal and now Turing you shouldn't max out power limit and leave it at that since more power means more heat and causes such decrease on the clock in long run.

 

so decrease 5%~10% and keep trying to force the overclock you might manage to sustain the better clock for longer.

Sounds like a heat issue first. I’m sure it always hits the power limit though.

I've been messing the the curve as you said. O found I can overclock it +150 at Lower voltages and +120 at high voltages. It appears as though the issues is clock speed.

Yeah it's about maxed out lol.

2025-2040 mhz is also quite a nice boost from what actually is on the box. which is 1650 so you are getting a nearly 400mhz oc, thats 23-24% more than you actually paid for according to specs.

 

that watercooling does not give you anything more than air, except better temperatures, that is just a biproduct.

 

yeah would be nice to have everything fully unlocked, but there is no cheats in it.

The hotter the card, the faster it downclocks. It will never keep the clocks if it's over 60C. GamersNexus explained it.

 

Thermal threshold is about 50C then it's 60C then it's 70C and 82C. After each temp clock drops.
