One of the new features of NVIDIA's RTX series was OC Scanner, a tool that automatically overclocks your GPU by testing a range of frequencies and picking the "stable" sweet spot. TechPowerUp writes this feature is now also available for NVIDIA's Pascal GPUs, as version 4.6.0 beta 10 of MSI's Afterburner utility has expanded support to NVIDIA's previous-gen GPUs.
One of the runaway features for NVIDIA's latest RTX-20 series of graphics cards was the introduction of support for the OC Scanner feature - a program that automagically tests a range of frequencies on your NVIDIA graphics card and overclocks it to a deemed "stable" sweet-spot. This practically obviates the need for manual fine-tuning, though of course, the best results should always be found down that road - provided there's enough tinkering.
Additionally, this version also adds some new features like voltage control for Turing.
