I think most of us are pretty familiar with the concept of overclocking. This is something that has been done to both CPU’s and GPU’s for many years. Usually you just increase the clockspeed, sometimes with an extra increase in voltage and presto! Increased performance. Or that is how it used to be. For a few generations of GPU’s now the GPU’s have no longer been running with a set clockspeed instead boosting to a higher clockspeed that is partly determined by power target limit and temperatures. So while the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC have a 1755 MHz Boost clock it actually often boosts even higher (I’ve seen up to 1900 MHz).
