Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go
ASUS has provided the GeForce GTX 980 Matrix Platinum with a Core Clock of 1241MHz, which results in a Boost Clock of 1342MHz. This is quite high, especially against the reference GeForce GTX 980 from NVIDIA with a Core and Boost Clock of 1126MHz and 1216MHz, respectively. In saying that, I didn't expect to squeeze much more from the card, but boy was I wrong.
[googleadr]With some effort and some additional power being pumped into the card, we were able to reach a huge 1364MHz on the Core, which has the Boost sitting at 1465MHz - an increase of another 123MHz! Considering ASUS is already pushing the pedal to the metal, we were chuffed with this result. But, does this additional overclock on the factory overclock result in more performance? Let's find out.
