    No kidding! I was able to undervolt my 1080 Strix and limit the power to 75% resulting in pretty much the same 1800-1900Mhz I had before, but a big difference in acoustics. Thanks for the tip.

    I'm sure i could reach 2100Mhz this way but the noise wouldn't be worth the 10% speed increase.

    Gave the new Unigine benchmark a run at 8K, suprised at the result (this is with both Ryzen and 1080 ti overclocked)

    8K looks quite nice :razz:

    I'm able to sustain 2000MHz on the core on my 1080 Ti with "just" 0.993mv, at stock it was pulling 1.0620mv for 1949! The difference both in performance and acoustics/thermals is too big to ignore.

    Yeah a lot was made about undervolting Polaris, but many ignore there are also benefits doing this for Pascal and can also help with increasing VRAM clocks even a bit more along with core - possibly more of an advantage with the higher tier Nvidia GPUs.

    Cheers

    It's like a new gpu for me! I'm obsessed about silence and now I can keep case fans on a silent setting even when gaming. At no performance cost!

    Thanks for the tip. After some googling I found how to add a voltage profile to the Afterburner software (Ctrl + F brings up the voltage curve)*, and by lowering the voltage a bit I think I achieved a more consistent overclock. I'm running a Founders Edition GTX 1070 so power is limited by design. Though I am impressed by the card.

    Edit: * I guess unlocking the voltage control within the software was also a needed step.

    DOOM at native 4k, nightmare settings, no sweat :)

    [​IMG]

    (the monitoring software is just there for info, not playing the game like that :lol:)

    It goes up to 140-150 fps at times, never drops below 60, this GPU is ridiculous. Going from the 970, to Intel 4000 for two months, to this is quite an experience.

    These were taken at 4k at max settings. Resized to save bandwidth.

    Don't you run with v-sync? Anything above 60 fps seems like a waste, unless your monitor can do 144Hz or something along those lines.

    Even if you do, undervolting nets better results as it is using even less power at these settings. And when you do need to use the GPU at 99% it doesn't throttle, which leads to smoother frametimes.

    Edit: Power draw and fps per watt for Witcher 3 in that scene

    Does anyone buy a 1080Ti without a 144hz or 4k monitor?

    The DOOM nightmare settings test:



    Chrome can run this at 4k60fps VP9 codec. I recorded this before I looked more into undervolting so it's at 0.981mv :)

    I messed up with the naming on this chart, it should be Watt per FPS :yelling:

    That's better :yep2:
