This is something I had some time to spend with -- overclocking the MSI GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X TRIO. I had half a day of playing around with overclocking and getting all of our benchmarks in all resolutions done with the overclock enabled. This took a while, but it gives you a great look at the overall performance increases you can expect from an easy-to-apply overclock.

There's plenty of headroom for it in the RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X TRIO and the TRI-FROZR cooling solution keeps it all nice and cool at 66-68C with its fan speed on defaults, spooling the fans up will shave off a few degrees but won't open the floodgates any further for overclocking.

As for overclocking, I pushed:

  • +91MHz on the GPU for a boost GPU clock of 2040-2055MHz.
  • +834MHz on the GDDR6 for 7834MHz or 7834Gbps (15.6Gbps up from 14Gbps)
  • 112% power limit
  • 88C temp limit

GDDR6 overclocking is fun because we see insane speeds of 15.6Gbps up from the already blazing fast 14Gbps stock GDDR6 clocks. Remember, the upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER will have its 8GB of GDDR6 overclocked to 15.5Gbps, so the overclock on the GDDR6 on the current RTX 2070 SUPER to those levels definitely boosts the performance across the board.
