    I was not comparing the scores. I was comparing the RELATIVE scores*. I know you don't know the difference, just like you can't understand why the normalized average performance for other cards is different in GTX 660 reviews. Just like you think Steam numbers are not reliable because you can't understand how statistics work and just like pretty much anything. There's a pattern. You have no idea of how math works and hence you can't understand the simplest thing, like W1zzard's reviews, which is why you are so anal about the scores. They might very well be the only thing you understand on them. Tough stuff, math and stuff... huh :laugh:

    *HD6000 scores were higher in the new bench. Fermi scores were lower on the new test. If you're pretending to say HD6000 is better at compute than Fermi... :roll:

    I think I answered that.. maybe not in the context of GTX 660.

    I flashed the original NVIDIA reference BIOS on the card that was closest to reference (usually ZOTAC). That seemed good enough for performance and power (which is included in the review). But not accurate enough for fan noise (so no ref fan noise numbers). Once cards were available in retail I bought GTX 660 Ti, GTX 660, GTX 650 reference designs with my own money.

    not sure if i understand the problem? these custom boards run different clocks, so yes they are varying amounts faster than the reference design

    I may not read them all, but I like all the excellent articles and reviews that TPU does. The best tech site for me. I visit every day. Thank you for all the hard work. :lovetpu:

    Thanks. Perhaps in future situation it may be prudent to space out the threads so as to create some space? Instead of hammering them all out at the same time :eek:

    I like the news section here...

    :peace:

    Heh, Yup Since we were members on Hardware Analysis lol. Once im through the storm of life im going through right now Ill either Take my Bros machine that I built him last year (Phenom II X2 Unlocked to X4) maybe add another 6770 or build an APU based machine. Its what I call Ol Faithful. Ill eventually take it and push it with better cooling for components.

    (I honestly feel OC isnt as special anymore as seems majority of Core users are getting 4.5GHz out of their CPUs)

    Does it really matter?

    I think not.
