So, How big is the difference between factory overclocked GPUs and normal ones? Do they have more clock speeds?

My GPU (GT1030 EXOC GALAX) is factory overclocked, in MSI afterburner, the power limit is maxed out, but core clock and memory clock is on +0.

what does power limit mean anyway? would turning it down make it less than 30 watts maximum?
 
Yes, factory overclocked ones run at higher clock speeds than the stock ones. Otherwise what's the point? :p

However I would argue this is somewhat of a moot point because NVIDIA's GPUs since the GeForce 900 series will boost as fast as they can until they hit a limit. They often exceed the advertised boost clock speeds.

Power limit means exactly that, limiting how much power the card can draw. You can turn it down if you want, but it also means the card won't push itself as hard, so you'll lose performance.
