NVIDIA Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector's Edition Review: The GeForce Is Strong With This One
NVIDIA Star Wars Titan Xp CE - Overclocking, Power, Heat, And Noise
We also spent a little time overclocking the NVIDIA Titan Xp Star Wars Collector's Edition card to see just how strongly the force was really flowing though it. To overclock the card we used the latest version of EVGA's Precision app and kept things super simple.
We've only had the card in hand for a very short time, and wanted to get this article posted as soon as possible, so all we did to overclock the Titan Xp Star Wars Collector's Edition was crank up the power and temperature targets and increase the GPU and Memory offsets until things became unstable. Then we backed things down to stable settings.
At these settings the GPU maxed-out at 1,961MHz with a max GPU temp of only 86C. We suspect with some tweaking higher clocks would be possible, because technically our card wasn't unstable at these settings. Nothing ever crashed and we didn't see any on-screen anomalies, but some benchmarks (like 3DMark) wouldn't report accurate results, even though they appeared to complete properly. Regardless, don't call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease.
We should also mention that GPU temperatures on the card are a non-issue. At idle, the card's GPU hovered in the mid-30 degree range. And under sustained load, the GPU temperature never actually hit the default target. Even while we had the card overclocked, the GPU peaked at only 86ºC. Noise isn't a concern for the Titan Xp Collector's Edition either. At idle the card is essentially silent -- it's inaudible over a typical PSU and CPU cooling fan. Under load, with the default fan curve, the card is slightly louder, but we'd still consider it quiet. The Titan Xp Collector's Edition card's acoustic profile is right on-par with a GTX 1080 Ti.
