Nvidia's new OC Scanner technology is set to take a lot of the hassle out of overclocking, at least on Turing graphics cards, with Nvidia claiming that the utility will be able to overclock and stress test a user's graphics card in around 20 minutes, creating a final overclock that will be stable in 99% of all games.   
At the Turing Editors Day at GDC 2018, Nvidia's Tom Petersen showcased the utility in action, using it as it is implemented in EVGA's Precision X1 overclocking suite on an RTX 2080.

Using the utility, Petersen managed to overclock the RTX 2080 to over 2100MHz without any changes to the GPU's power target, making it possible that higher clock speeds are achievable with higher power limits.

Nvidia's OC Scanner offers users an integrated stress test that is designed to place a large amount of computational stress on the graphics card while eliminating the need to reboot the user's system upon failure, taking away most of the hassles associated with overclocking. The utility is also designed to create users a clock speed voltage curve, allowing users to see the highest clock speeds that their graphics card is capable of at specific voltages.    

Nvidia's OC Scanner will be integrated into other AIB overclocking utilities, with MSI Afterburner, ASUS GPU Tweak and other competing solutions offering support for the tool in the near future. 

At this time it is unknown how high the average RTX graphics card will overclock, but a demonstration of over 2100MHz is an encouraging sight, especially after considering the per CUDA core performance enhancements offered by the Turing graphics architecture.

Tom, have you got access to this for your review sample?Quote

It's not available yet fella.

Wonder if this will be compatible with non Turing cards.Quote

Course not lol. I bet half of what Turing does could all be done on Pascal. They use these little nibbles to reel people in.Quote

Man, they really want to take the fun out of overclocking, don't they? xDQuote
