The Ampere range of Nvidia’s recently introduced graphics cards impressed with their performance and price ratio, but did not impress with GPU frequencies.
As a reminder, all three novelties have an increased kernel frequency approximately the same and are in the range of 1.7-1.73 GHz. Graphic card manufacturers, despite their announcements, are not in a hurry to disclose such data, but according to the available first models will not be happy factory overclocking.
Does this indicate that the new adapters have poor overclocking potential? Apparently not. EVGA probably hinted at the overclocking capabilities of the RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra in a video dedicated to ICX3 Technology.
In this case, as we see, the kernel frequency is 2105 MHz, which is about 20% higher than the recommended value. On the one hand, it can only be a picture that has nothing to do with reality. On the other hand, Zotac similarly “advertised” the 1933 MHz frequency for RTX 3080.
Thus, it is too early to draw conclusions, but still there is reason to hope for a good overclocking potential of these latest graphics cards.
