In the least, then, our “242% offset” has managed to get us another 70W of power to the core, which is enough to push the clock into competition with V64 overclocks.
We’re presently in the midst of researching clock reporting errors with Vega monitoring software, as they’re limiting our ability to adequately list overclock successes and failures. There’s a threshold at which overclocking seems to just stop working, but the card will report whatever frequency the user has set – it’s just not actually achieving that frequency. That’s a separate content piece, though.
In the meantime, it looks like the registry mod managed to get us some extra power. As we’re finalizing this part of the content, the card is presently sitting under load with FET thermals below 45C and GPU thermals well under control – though AMD’s GPU diode temperature reporting does seem a bit off, too, as it will report below ambient when idle and with liquid (clearly impossible, in this case).
