NVIDIA locks overclocking in GeForce GTX 1070 Ti (Page 4)

By Anthony Garreffa from Oct 15, 2017 @ 18:11 CDT

Final Thoughts

Now, the enthusiast part of me is less mad, more disappointed. NVIDIA has been a company that, in my eyes, has always had a strong leading position. NVIDIA continues to innovate and push into markets that it might not be all that successful in, but when it does be successful, it doubles down. The company did it with their original GeForce 256 graphics card (which is where my online handle 'anthony256' came from, a little TIL for you), and they did it again most recently with the Pascal GPU architecture.

The Pascal GPU architecture was a tour de force in how to build an incredibly powerful, but also incredibly powerful graphics card. The GTX 1080 at the time offered some great performance that rivaled the already powerful GTX 980 Ti, and did so using less power. But even then, NVIDIA had restrictions on voltage running through Pascal, with volt-modding and sub-zero cooling breaking those limits, the cards were utter BEASTS.

We saw even harder restrictions placed on the GP102 with the GTX 1080 Ti, because when that card is truly unleashed (volt modding and LN2) it is an absolute technological freaking marvel. I can't imagine what a fully unleashed GP100 GPU @ 3GHz would do with GDDR6 @ 16Gbps... compared to the GPU @ 2.2GHz max, and GDDR5X maxing out at 12Gbps or so. This is just Pascal, too. No refresh, no Volta.
