So, I managed to overclock my GPU to 2 GHz ("TURBO" Profile) with KonaBess and it's rock solid. Have I been extremely lucky or...?

So, I went on a "boredom rampage" and I've read an article about a guy overclocking his 865 GPU to 865 MHz and reaching Adreno 660-levels of performance and I decided to give it a try and it was awesome.
Problem is, I'm too much of a thinkerer and I pushed the GPU as much as I could. I ended up on 2000 MHz with "TURBO" voltage profile and it's rock solid even on 2100 MHz with the same profile but KonaBess gives me an error if I try to edit the GPU tables after I booted at 2100 MHz.
I even edited the clock profiles to make it smoother, starting from 305 MHz to 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1400, 1600, 1800 and 2000 with the right voltages.
Now, the battery and SoC temperatures are the same, the battery drain is basically the same, some other fellow modders with the same device (Mi 10T Pro 5G 8/256 with Pixel Experience Plus ROM) didn't manage to hit the same clocks, crashing even with 1000 or 1200 MHz, with my file from the KonaBess app.
So, have I been extremely lucky with the silicon lottery or it's just an illusion?
Please ask if you need ANY benchmark or proof. I've been monitoring the GPU clock with Franco Kernel Manager Live Monitoring and the clock is solid at 2000 MHz and the 3D performance has at first jumped and then slowly climbed, especially on 3DMark Wild Life Extreme. Wild Life Extreme Stress Test is stable the temperatures are fine.

Do you guys have any questions/suggestions/requests?

Edit: Here are some 3DMark runs, both Wild Life and Wild Life Extreme at stock and 2 GHz. I use Greenify, my storage is 94% full and all my processes in the background take up 4 GB of RAM and I didn't touch the bus for the various steppings for the clocks, so I believe that if heavily tuned, this could make a difference.

It doesn't have the biggest of bumps from 900 MHz to 1 GHz or 2 GHz, but still, is capable of doing it and rock solid too.
i don't think your gpu is actually running at 2ghz while you are running a benchmark. going from stock to 2ghz would at least have to give you an extra 20-30 fps in Wild Life.

Not necessarily. The GPU IS running at 2 GHz but I think that the problem might be some diminishing returns where the clock doesn't mean anything after a certain point.

Yes after reboot is resets like on every phone you have to check apply on boot and select min 2000GHZ and max 2000ghz GPu freq in tap in FKM and set gov to performance and do benchmark like 3dmark wild life . Like that. And in Smart pack Kernel manager free app is GPU throttle turn that off.

Check box apply on boot and after boot will be apply.
And that you can show improvements of OC
