Spending Time Overclocking The NVIDIA RTX 2060 FE

Source: The FPS Review Spending Time Overclocking The NVIDIA RTX 2060 FE

Plenty Of Time To Tweak A Founders Edition RTX 2060

The FPS Review offers a constructive way to pass the time in self quarantine, revisiting your GPU’s frequencies to see if there is a little more performance you can coax out of it.  Armed with MSI’s Afterburner software, they increased the juice available to the card and set about incrementally increasing frequencies to find the highest stable overclock the card is capable of.   These particular tests were performed on a system powered by a Ryzen 9 3950X sitting on MSI’s X570A-Pro with 16GB of DDR4-3600.

They started at the stock frequencies of 1680MHz Boost clock with it’s GDDR6 running at 14GHz.  They upped the power limit to +118 and the voltage to +25 mV before starting to increase the clocks, with the card settling on 1980MHz Boost and 16.2GHz GDDR6 as the highest frequencies it could maintain without becoming unstable. 

Check out if that was enough to turn this into a true 1440p card or if you will still need to back off to 1080p for some titles, as well as the likely reason for performance limitations.

For the NVIDIA RTX 2060 FE graphics card, we will approach the overclocking by boosting the power limit to maximum levels within MSI Afterburner (including using the extended range options) and then start increasing the GPU clock speed until we find the highest stable value.
