Variation of GPU frequency and Ethereum mining

What happens when the frequency of the GPU is changed while mining Ethers? is the hasrate impacted, is there a gain or a loss? Let’s see what are the results with different graphics cards.

Decreasing the frequency of the graphics processor reduces the power consumption of the graphics card. The number of MH/s generated by the card is almost unchanged, as Ethash, the algorithm used by Ethereum, focuses on the memory capacity of video cards, and not their GPU. This is true for most cards, only the Sapphire RX 470 Mining 4G and XFX R9 390 8G get improved performance when the frequency is higher (with respectively +38% and 16% additional power consumption and +55% with 67% additional power consumption) when we add 400MHz to the GPU.
