Best 980 Ti for Overclocking

Best 980 Ti for Overclocking – Maxwell, as we’ve written in a how-to guide before, overclocks differently from other architectures. NVidia’s newest design institutes a power percent target (“Power % Target”) that increments power provisioning to the die to grant OC headroom. Unfortunately, this metric can’t be exceeded beyond what the BIOS natively allows (without a hack, anyway), and means that we’re sharing watts between the core clock, memory clock, and voltage increase. Overclocking on Maxwell offers some granularity without making things too complicated, though it’s not until we get hands-on with board partner video cards that we’ll know the true OC ceiling of the 980 Ti.

WRAP UP

Best 980 Ti for Overclocking – Our initial review of the $650 GTX 980 Ti, published just over twelve hours prior to this post, mentioned an additional posting focusing on the card’s overclocking headroom. The GTX 980 Ti runs GM200, the same GPU found in nVidia’s Titan X video card, and is driven by Maxwell’s new overclocking ruleset.
