Unfortunately, the review unit of the founder’s edition  blocks out the ASIC quality rating.

ASIC Quality

After a couple of trial and error, I was able to achieve the following numbers good enough to be stable on load and without crossing the maximum temperature threshold of 94 degrees celsius. The overclocked base clock is now 10.08%, from 1607 MHz to 1769 MHz. The boost clock of the overclocked profile is up to 1869 MHz, a 9.34% boost. A 162MHz base clock bump is pretty good.


I tried to memory overclock by giving it a boost of +170MHz but it didn’t reflect on the GPU-Z. Strange!

The results are as follows:

3DMark Benchmark

Game Benchmarks- DX 12/OpenGL 4.5 Highest presets

The 10% base clock OC resulted in good enough boost in performance in DOOM and The Rise of the Tomb Raider.
