Clock Speed Consistency Over Time

Since it is equipped with a water cooler, the EVGA GTX 980 Hybrid shouldn’t exhibit any problems with clock speed throttling. However, we still needed to run our typical gamut of testing to insure nothing was going on behind the scenes to artificially limit frequencies.

Temperatures were nothing short of incredible even though the card is overclocked to some impressive clock speeds. We never saw it go above the 37°C throughout testing and the card actually stabilized around 36°C

Naturally, these low temperature allow the Hybrid to increase its Boost frequencies to reasonably high levels. It hit a continual level of 1430MHz throughout testing, beating every other GTX 980 we’ve ever tested.

Moving on to actual performance, there’s actually not that much difference in Hitman due to architectural limitations but as you will see on the next pages, many games allow EVGA’s card to really stretch its legs.
