Nvidia Releases The Beast – Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Review

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.

While you would think the bump to 250W for he RTX 2080 SUPER, would not leave much room for pushing the clocks, it still had some room to move. The GPU we observed a default steady-state boost frequency of 1935MHz. We were able to push +90 to the core with the raised power limit to achieve a steady-state of 2010 – 2025MHz under constant gaming style loading.

The memory default for the RTX 2080 SUPER is the fastest VRAM to be used on a GPU to date with a clock rate of 15.5Gbps. We were able to push the memory to +800 which raised our effective clock to 17.1Gbps.

With the overclocks all set, we now ran some comparison runs of 3DMark Time Spy. As you can see, the graphics score for Time spy jumped by almost 6% compared to stock.

Moving to Time spy extreme we see the overclock deliver an almost 7 percent increase in graphics performance. Of course, I would like to see a lot more, but not too bad with no need for voltage adjustments or even raising the temperature limit.

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.
