Overclocking the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X Plus
The GTX 1060 Gaming X plus sample that I received came with a fairly high clock speed out of the box. Using MSI’s afterburner application I was able to push the card to a max boost speed of 2050 MHz on the GPU core and 10,012 MHz on the memory. I let a few automated bechmarks run for 2 hours in the background to ensure the stability of the overclock.
I chose a mix of synthetic and gameplay tests to illustrate the performance increase between the stock clocked card and the overclock that I achieved.
