Overclocking Results


Overclocking the GTX TITAN is actually quite straightforward since NVIDIA’s board partners have supplied some excellent tools in order to help you get the most out of your $1000 purchase. We’ve already discussed the addition of voltage and GPU Boost 2.0’s expanded feature set ad nauseam but now it’s time to put those lessons to good use.

Actually pushing TITAN to the limit boils down to a simple formula: maximize the Power Target, ensure temperatures are kept below the Temperature Target, increase voltage (the limits of which will be governed by individual board partners) while remaining within safe limits and gradually increase the GPU and Memory Offsets. To accomplish our overclocks, the fan was set to 60% which still didn’t exhibit all that much noise but resulted in temperatures which were conducive to overclocking.


In our testing, NVIDIA’s GK110 core had no issue hitting a Boost Clock of 1162MHz but hit right into the Power Limit, despite it being set at 106%. Memory was also ready to overclock and hit a speed of 6676MHz. As you can see in the quick benchmarks below, this led to a performance increase of about 15%.
