It would be nice if TPU had used up to date drivers in this review. What kind of tri-fire user refuses to use beta drivers? The WHQL driver used in this review is pretty much a two and a half month old beta. Many of the newer games in this review see much better scaling with more recent drivers. If the gpu, memory, and vrms stay cooler they work more efficiently and will keep tdp down. So it may help. I'm also hearing that they may raise the tdp limit. +6% is pretty stingy.
