Overclocking, Current Testing

06/30/2016 - 13:26

In my original review I did some direct power measurements while overclocked. What does the data look like in that scenario, with power targets raised by 30% but with only a 3.5% overclock in GPU frequency? [inline:files/review/2016-06-30/w31080p-oc-all....
