ASIC Quality

Not surprisingly….


Nvidia said that the GTX 1060 can overclock easily up to 2 GHz. This is a 292MHz bump over its stock base clock. While I was able to do this, it ended up displaying artifacts. I’ve decreased down to +130MHz over the base clock which seemed to be all good here. Once again, the purpose of doing overclocking in these reviews is not the purpose of getting highest possible overclocking. Not all chips are equal and it’s not necessary all cards get highest ASIC quality core (though the much higher factory-overclocked ones do get them). The purpose of such tests is to find out if there is a realistic bump in performance with some increase in base clocks.


3DMark Benchmark

Game Benchmarks- DX 12/OpenGL 4.5 Highest presets

While its average framerates isn’t showing a significant increase, the card does get the added ability to get higher maximum framerates. Such is the case with Hitman DX12 with its highest setting.
