Overclocking & Power
TechPowerUp’s GPU-Z shows us under the hood.
At stock, Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Super FE settles in around 1950MHz core speed, and about 60C core temps.
We are able to push the GDDR6 memory up a staggering +1300MHz. for 18,102MHz effective, more than 2.6 GHz over stock. Power target goes to 112%
With memory, speed maxed out and power target raised, our Time Spy score jumps from stock at 10,861 up about 3% from memory alone.
We were able to give the core clock another 100MHz.
This lets our card boost to 2100MHz with occasional drops to 2085MHz.
Our final Time Spy score comes in an 11,433, a 5.3% increase over ‘stock’.
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%
73W – From the wall
65W – adjusted for Efficiency.
Under full GPU load:
340W – from the wall
316W adjusted for Efficiency.
This gives us a GPU only power consumption for 251W at stock settings from the PSU which is within the margin of error of TDP.
When overclocking, we see a rise of 43W over stock load settings or right around the 300W mark from the GPU alone.
