    77.7% on XFX 7970 BEDD (non-Ghz) running 1125/1425 at stock volts (watercooled) but cant manage to OC more even with voltage increase.

    59.3% on friend's Sapphire 7950 (non-Ghz) stock edition with 1 fan running 1000/1375 without voltage increase, haven't tried for more.

    Doesn't work on my card, so I'm assuming 100%.

    I think there was some discussion about ASIC quality in the past (with some dude wanting to RMA it because it was below 75% or something) and what use it actually has. Some people seem to connect it with overclocking capabilities, but that is clearly not the case. I still don't know exactly why it's there.

    we really need to have people edit their posts to include MAX overclock.

    that way we can compare asic and overclock ability. then maybe some kind of table.

    Here's mine 94%:rockout:

    I'm assuming higher % is better.

    Here is mine. Pretty low I'd say :ohwell:

    Nonetheless, I am still very happy with my card. It can clock up to 1200 MHz without increasing voltage and with that level of performance I can't complaint much but we can always expect more, right ? :ohwell:
    I had GTX 680M that has 100 % ASIC and it was a clocker beast. I think my good time stopped after having this card.

    By the way, I am courious how these numbers are actually calculated :)

    My 7870 is 92%, I will add a screenie when I get home, runs at 1250mhz without additional volts.

    My 560ti is factory over clocked to 880, I've cranked it to 950 with no extra powah.

    I forgot to mention, the card is voltage locked. At that oc setting voltage is at 1.085v. I can move it up to 1.13v but even at that voltage I could not get it stable on Metro Last Light at a tiny 30mhz overclock over my current oc :laugh:. So yup, that's pretty much the highest oc I can get my card to despite the high asic.

    Here's my card. Wasn't sure if I was supposed to post it since this is the red team's subforum, but since others have given their results...
    75.1% ASIC quality. It's a reference Leadtek GTX670, and it's pretty happy doing 1200MHz all day @73°C.

    I can't get mine to OC as good as one would think with my ASIC quality. 1100mhz and instant crash in 3dmark11 no matter how much juice I feed it. Best run I've gotten recently was 1050mhz.

    same as a second 7950 I tested, 1100 and itll crash no matter how much volts. the asic was 55% tho.

    and this one 59% overclocks better than most higher asic cards.

    I don't know what to conclude, it may be an exception to the rule.

    my asic is higher than yours and I couldn't even get to 1030 on core without crashing on Metro LL :p though it was 3dmark11 stable and runs fine on Crysis 3 and FC3. Is that XFX of yours the one with a 7970 pcb?

    Ignore the ASIC. Go by what actually clocks best. Seriously this is why everyone stopped paying attention to this number not long after it was added. A lot of high scoring cards aren't great clockers. The only reason to chase down a high scoring card is if you're anal about power efficiency.

    Do they both have the same stock performance voltage?

    From what I understand high ASIC quality = low leakage, low ASIC quality = high leakage. But the best overclockers are usually the high leakage parts, because you can pump tons of voltage into them so long as you have a means of removing the resulting heat.

    Looks like I'm the winner with 94% :p

    That is what LN2 extreme clocks look for. highest leakage chips and cards they can get.

    10mv difference. and the difference between overclocks is insane!

    tbh to me asic doesn't mean shit, from my experience I got a leaky card which overclocks well.. and theres cards I know which have decent (high) asic and still need the same volts to do the same clocks and still can get higher or lower.
