    Meh, Makes sense to me. Makes even more sense given the number of 7950's I've had with similar ASIC quality numbers, but on different PCBs, when you add in power consumption figures of each card. "Higher" ASIC % listing = higher power consumption from what I've seen. Do keep in mind what is listed in GPU-Z...it doesn't explicitly state that higher = better.

    ok it got fixed by itself, left the PC to get some lunch, came back to see PC was not responding, restarted the PC and the video card volts are fixed lol.

    This card absolutely hates OCing :laugh:

    how come all these XFX's on here are around 80%+?

    My XFX DD's are 67% and 71% and were default 1.25v and 1.169v respectively. They are also the latest version factory o/c version at 925MHz. To add insult to injury, they're shorter than the older ones with a smaller cooler so quite happy to sit at 95C!! It's like they've been using up all the reject ASICs left over from their other cards!

    It took the finest brains on this forum to write a nice little bios editor so I could fix XFX's scew ups and drop the voltage to 1.069v @ 925MHz so they're now no longer at risk of spontaneous combustion.

    For info, the higher ASIC scores slightly higher in Heaven11 at 1.169v and same clocks as the lower ASIC at 1.25v. However the graphics scores in 3dmark11 are IDENTICAL!

    My first and last purchase from XFX.

    My two GTX 660s.
    They overclock the same, but i found oc on GTX660 is usless 5-8% increase is not worth IMHO.

    Well, the fact it's called asic quality instead of asic suckiness of donkey's bottom, is confusing :D

    Lower usually means a better overclock....
    I think:)

    I thought it was said as "Lower usually means better overclock with better cooling... most of the time...?"
    I think.

    I still don't believe ASIC actually means anything.

    Had a pair of 7970 Lightnings, ASIC 55.6% and 62.1% respectively - they overclocked just fine (1200/1800 on 1.21 vcore 1.63 vram)

    Swapped those out for a pair of ACX 780s, ASIC 66.8% and 73.1% respectively, and they are the worst overclocking cards I've ever had in all my 15 years of buying graphics cards... won't even do +50 MHz (= 1150 in-game boost) on the core stably.

    My Gigabyte GTX 580 Super OC has 81.6%. It overclocks well but I wouldn't say anything outstanding.

    I wouldn't pay much attention to this thing TBH. The criteria for this test is way too basic to conclude much. For example, if an aftermarket card is using better VRMs/chokes than a reference, the reference is going to win due to the lower power rated components and/or lower voltages on the card. Also the vast majority of chips are going to be untested & all flashed with the exact same average vBIOS values set by Nvidia (unless it is a handpicked non-ref design like Galaxy's HOF) -- for example, my 460 was way overvolted by default for its clocks and yet could clock to the moon and back (without touching the voltage), while my 680 was barely stable at stock (would not budge 10MHz without crashing about an hour into anything) and yet my 680 had a higher score.

    Also there was the whole fiasco last generation with Fermis getting flashed with incorrect vBIOS values by most, if not all vendors -- which is the reason why GPU Boost was introduced in the first place (to do all this work for them).

    This rating is definitely a great idea, but needs a lot more data to be accurate IMHO -- if someone can get some data from a vendor on max/min/avg clocks per chip, you could then work out a much more accurate rating.

    How about some 280X 290 and 290X ASIC numbers

    Asus reference R290 (non x): 76.5 %. Seems it oc well - have maxed it out with Afterburner (1235Mhz).
    Need some tweak to allow higher clock - Asus GPU Tweak maybe?

    I share this sentiment. Also, there just too many other factors with other components on a card that can make a difference. Be it what parts are used and/or the quality/tolerances of the parts used.

    Got one MSI HD7870 Hawk with 73,2%. Does 1135MHz Core stock, 1.26v stable 1260MHz
    And a Sapphire Dual-X OC HD7870 with 92.1% does 1205MHz core stock, 1.26v stable 1210MHz(yeah 5MHz more...)

    XFX R9 290
    ASIC Quality - 69.2%
    Waterblock is on order, hopefully this means that my card will clock well under h20.
