    Galax GeForce GTX 1080 HOF hits 2.2GHz on air, 2.5GHz on LN2

    'Hall of Fame' card features the, now traditional, physical 'Turbo Button'.

    That's fine and dandy, but what are the frame rates for an hour of gameplay?

    Truthfully, I don't get this obsession with Overclocking... particularly on top end gear.
    Surely the gains are marginal in real terms and will make next to no difference to 99% of gamers
    The thought of killing my kit from overzealous O/Cing is scary... I don't have money to burn to replace burnt out kit... I need it to be stable, reliable and *long lived*

    well, to contradict myself a little, I do understand how people get obsessed by stuff like this... all true hobbies can go that way, but what I mean is the gains are so small its almost pointless, except for a bit of brinkmanship, getting one up on the rest, bragging rights

    Erm, I think you kind of answered your own point there Those are the points for people who care about overclocking. It's all about measurable differences, even ones that would make no perceivable difference in the real world. I feel another obligatory XKCD moment coming up....

    Are these the cards which could run higher than the 1.09v limit for whatever reason?

    For some reason I immediately thought of David Hasselhoff, when I read the 'HOF' bit. Makes me wonder how fast *he* can go on air ...or liquid nitrogen for that matter.

    That's my view exactly Vorlon. In the past I've always overclocked my gear slightly, and measured if the gains are worth it... sometimes they are sometimes they're not. I just think its nice to see what they are capable of. But yes, it's a hobby, much like performance tuning a car/motorcycle, sometimes figures are what the more analytical crave I guess haha.

    I see it mainly as a hang-over from when overclocking and unlocking were big things.......what I find amazing though is how much money is lavished on all the gear and events for these "feats" that would not be stable for actual use and are maginal when compared with the "good olde days" when we were running 50%+ CPU overclocks, unlocking GPU units and some nutters were even busting out peltiers.

    It's hard to say.. time seems to slow down when he runs Great soundtrack though

    Re: Galax GeForce GTX 1080 HOF hits 2.2GHz on air, 2.5GHz on LN2

    Overclocking isn't my bag either. I'd rather spend what little quality time my PC and I have together these days actually playing games, rather than fiddling with the hardware that allows me to play them.

    I suppose overclocking is a bit like mountain climbing though. Ultimately there's no real point to it, and there's a chance it could end badly, but I guess those who partake must derive a sense of achievement and satisfaction from it, otherwise they wouldn't do it

    lol, nice analogy
    My thoughts exactly... for the sake of 1 or 2 extra FPS I would rather increase my K/D on BF3 or BF4

    I think this is probably spot on. There was a time when mainstream CPU (and to a lesser extent GPU) performance was only just sufficient for a usable experience, and a 10% overclock could actually make a huge difference to the real world usability of your PC. Nowadays even entry level hardware is more than adequate, largely thanks to MS getting Window's resource management under control, so you get far fewer of those day-to-day situations where overclocking will make a difference. Plus game developers offer a much wider range of quality settings that was previously available (there are games out there that basically gave you the option of high quality or low quality and that was it!), so now it's far easier to just turn a couple of settings down to increase framerates (for my money, any pixel density equivalent to or greater than 1080p @ 24" can do without AA, for instance), rather than fiddling with overclocking settings as nauseam.

    OTOH, there's always been a fascination with pushing things for their own sake. Pretty much all sport relies on that, and I don't understand what drives the vast majority of people who do sports. I guess everyone's boat floats on a different sea...

    Re: Galax GeForce GTX 1080 HOF hits 2.2GHz on air, 2.5GHz on LN2

    I think there is more than that.

    When an entry level CPU was a Pentium II at 166MHz or you could pay lots more for a 266MHz part, the only difference between them was clock speed so there was a big win from overclocking an entry level part.

    Even when the fabled Celeron 300MHz came out, if you got that overclock to 450MHz you were only losing out on a bit of L2 cache compared to a P2 or P3.

    These days, if you buy an entry level i3 or Pentium part then compared to a range topping i7 you lose cores, cache and features so an overclock can never get you the equivalent of a top end part for less money.
