ASIC Quality and Overclocking


Unfortunately, the card did not display its ASIC quality.

Reference Factory OC Diff from Ref Manual OC
Base 1354 1404 3.69% 1505
Boost 1455 1518 4.32% 1619

The graphic card has a minor factory overclock. I was able to give it a 100 MHz increase in base.


With this first attempt, I was able to achieve 100 MHz increase in manual overclocking. The main issue was the fan as its noise is audible with 52% fan speed setting.

Fan Speed and Temperature Observation

There shouldn’t be a reason to have such a fanspeed due to such low heat output. Even with auto fan setting, it does not seem to increase 42% fan speed with default clock.

3DMark Benchmark

Game Benchmarks- DX 12/OpenGL 4.5 Highest presets

As you can see, there is no difference in performance.
