We’ll see what the OC Scanner can do first.

This gets us a decent jump over the stock 8754 score we got.

Next, we set out to overclock the memory. We kept going up +100MHz at a time until we ran out of slider at +1000MHz for 16GHz effective speed, as fast as the RTX 2080Ti’s memory.

This lets the card hover around the 1900MHz mark on the core under load as it’s constantly bumping the power limit.

This gets us another good bump in Timespy, about 6.1% over the stock settings.
 

Power consumption
We measure power usage with a Watts up? .Net portable power meter with our Corsair RM1000 power supply.
Our 80+ Gold rated power supply runs with the following approximate efficiency:
10% Load – 89.1%
20% Load – 92.5%
30% Load – 93.1%
40% Load – 93.2%
50% Load – 92.9%
60% Load – 92.5%
70% Load – 92.0%
80% Load – 91.5%
90% Load – 90.8%
100% Load – 89.9%

At idle:
111W – From the wall
99W – adjusted for Efficiency.

Under full GPU load

293W – from the wall
273W adjusted for Efficiency.

This gives us a GPU only power consumption for 174W at stock settings which falls in line with Nvidia’s 175W TDP quite nicely.
