1080ti boost clock question

I recently bought this GPU used: https://www.evga.com/products/specs/gpu.aspx?pn=61e6d689-506e-45df-8202-b49614e9d54d

I noticed that it says the boost clock is 1670MHz, but when using afterburner it's going over 1900MHz. I didn't expect this, but not complaining. I have a case with excellent airflow but not sure if that has anything to do with it.

I didn't overclock, so this is "stock." In quotations since while I'd like to think I know the history of the GPU, maybe there's more to it. Thoughts?

It's GPU Boost 3 which basically means the GPU overclocks itself.

Ah, good read, and a 1070 can reach 1900MHz? That's impressive!

Depending on silicon over 2k isn't unheard of and golden chips have routinely hit 2.1+ it all falls on how much voltage the specific chip needs as that determines your thermal dissipation load.

Just as Mack_au says its the GPU Boost, i dont even touch my settings (only the fan curve) and mine goes to 1950/1975 on its own ( ftw 3 1080 ti)
