Overclocking

Gigabyte also includes software to overclock and change fan curve.

I did however choose to use the latest beta of MSI Afterburner to test the Nvidia o/c-scanner and see how high it could go. Running thescanner on the default settings yielded a curve where we got a average clockspeed of 123 MHz and a memory overclock of 200 MHz.

Next I increased the power target to 100% and ran the o/c sanner. This actually yielded a lower overclock so I went back to the first and then just increased the power target to 107% (wanted to keep the mex at 375W).

While there are some increases in performance they are small, around 2-4% maximum. At the same time the power draw increases up to 373 Watt (with 110% power target I saw it even increase to 383 W) and I am not sure it is worth it as you generate more heat that needs to be transported away.

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.
