Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition – Nvidia Unleashes RTX on The $350 Market

Overclocking

Overclocking the GTX 2000 Series cards are very similar to 10 series but there have been some improvements in how the boost works in version 4 over version 3 which was on Pascal. We discussed this earlier in the features section.

The 2060 much like the 2070 found its power limit very quickly. We were able to push the GPU to +162 with power limit maxed at 119%. This gave us an effective boost clock of 2040 – 2070 but as the chip gets warmer into steady state you will see the GPU roll back the clock a few ticks and you will get 2010MHz. This is normal as VRel kicks in and as silicon gets warmer it will require a little more voltage which is automatically applied and therefore as you hit the VRel limit and it will roll clocks accordingly to keep within predefined limits.

The memory could really move as we were able to with full stability pull +990MHz. This came out to almost 16,000MHz effective memory clock (15,984MHz).

Time Spy showed a graphics score increase of a little over 8% with the overclock.

Time Spy Extreme showed a graphics score increase of a little over 10% with the overclock.

So I guess you can say that yes you can overclock the FE but it is quite limited to how far it can go. I should have a few aftermarket AIB models so we can see if any of those fare any better in regards to pushing clocks or if the new cut down TU106 GPU is simply not able to go up very far.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
