Hey all, I've had my DS pc for a bit over a year now and I'm just noticing my gpu is clocking at 1850ish while gaming and benchmarking. Per NVIDIA, base is around 1410 and boost clock at 1665 (non-founders edition). I haven't had any over heating issues or any other issues whatsoever but it's the way it came from the box so I'm a little concerned if I should do something about this. thx!

Added some screenshots for reference:

IMO if there are no heat or video issues, I would enjoy and game on.

Thanks, I didn't want to over react but I worried I was clocking the same as 3090 lol.

Got with someone at DS and they said it should be fine as long as voltage doesn't go up.

You're/it's totally fine.

Modern CPUs and GPUs will boost until they encounter one or more of the following:

• Power (consumption) limit
• Voltage threshold
• Thermal/heat threshold
• Significant instability

The advertised clock frequency, including boost/turbo, are what you should expect as a minimum.

As for heat threshold, CPUs typically level off or throttle down at ~95ºC while most GPUs are configured to keep the overall core temp at 90ºC or less.

Most failures you'll hear/read/see are because of physical modifications, disabling safety features, forcing/overriding parameters (such as voltage or power limit), manufacturing defects, or other consumer misuse/damage.
