    Hi, can someone provide/link me a GTX 1070 mobile/max-q vbios which allow overclocking (like core and memory frequency tuning) ? I know there is some vbios on techpowerup but I'm not able to know if they are "unlocked".
    Thanks

    You don't need any special vBIOS to overclock using software tools like MSI Afterburner.

    Quadro vbios are locked, I think it's vbios related, but you confirm that every 1070 mobile can be overclocked ?

    GeForce vBIOS is not overclocking locked.

    @Coolane, are you interested in modifying this for the Quadro RTX GPUs?

    VBIOS attached.

    Hi, can you provide GPU-Z screenshot ? (main and "advanced > nvidia bios" section)
    I think I found TDP and temp value, the TDP limit seems to be 80w and the card should throttle temp at 60°c or 66°c
    I don't know why there is a redundancy in the vbios with the same value.

    Do you know from which temperature the card start to throttle ? If the temperature limit can be modified by overclocking tool so I think there is something about the temperature here (on the picture)

    I don't experience any thermal throttling—at least, not according to HWiNFO.

    Details:

    The power limit is indeed 80 W, and clock speeds under load are around 1.2 GHz, maybe 1.3 GHz at best.

    As an aside, if you overclock your GPU you'll get a higher frequency for your 80W limit. It might initially be couterintuitive to overclock it if you're bumping up against the power limit, but overclocking effectively shifts the frequency/voltage curve upwards so that any given voltage point has an offset of say +100Mhz (or whatever your stable overclock is), so you end up with the GPU operating at the most efficient frequency and voltage if you overclock. Effectively you'll find that the GPU will be operating at a higher frequency and a lower voltage when bumping up against the power limit. You'll get a bit more performance that way even without a modified vBIOS.

    Unfortunately the Quadros are completely locked from any adjustment of the clocks or voltage/frequency curve.
