GPU Boost 2.0

GPU BOOST 2.0 Technology

GPU Boost 2.0 extracts every ounce of computing power from graphics cards, maximising frame rates in each and every PC game. Compared to the original GPU Boost 1.0, GPU Boost 2.0 is faster and more flexible, giving users more control over its configuration.

Having acquired data from hundreds of thousands of end-users in the year following the GTX 680’s launch, NVIDIA’s engineers determined that GPU temperature was more commonly an inhibitor to performance than power consumption. As a result, they took the original GPU Boost 1.0 technology and developed GPU Boost 2.0 for GTX 700 Series graphics cards, which increases the Boost Clock until the graphics card hits a predetermined Temperature Target (80C on a GTX TITAN, for example). With this change, performance is increased by 3-7% over GPU Boost 1.0 at stock speeds, and by a larger degree on factory-overclocked models sold by our partners.


GPU Boost 2.0 delivers even faster GPU clock speeds


More Control, Less Noise

GPU Boost 2.0 also offers improved user-control to GTX TITAN and GTX 700 Series owners, who can tweak the Boost behaviour by increasing or decreasing the Temperature Target with third-party software. This allows users to decrease the maximum temperature, speed, and noise output of a GPU when working or playing older PC games, and to ramp everything up to max when playing the latest AAA PC game titles.


GPU Boost 2.0 runs quietly while maximising voltage and power usage


With a water-cooling GPU setup temperatures become irrelevant, allowing GPU Boost 2.0 to maximise voltage and power usage, in turn cranking the Boost Clock way beyond the norm, wringing every last drop of performance from GTX 700 Series GPUs, the GTX TITAN, and the latest range of GTX graphics cards.
