    I will allow the GTX675M Why???? It still is a GTX 600 Series chip for Laptops. Regardless if it is really a re-branded Fermi chip or not.

    It would be important information looking at laptops. This way anyone who is under the misunderstanding that the GTX 675M is a Kepler Chip will know.


    I insist that you do run some benchmarks.... I want to see how powerful that card really is compared to the GTX 680. Stock and overclocked. Nice pruchase!!! and welcome again! :toast:

    I mentioned that I my original post, but the chart you posted makes that clear to everyone :)

    I know it's a Fermi GPU, and until the 680M comes out, it's much faster than the top Kepler mobile GPU available as of this date (the 660M) and can be OCd to really high clocks, even if it's a rebrand of the previous highend GPU.

    Only the 7970M is faster than this GPU now, but unfortunately the Samsung model with that card will only release in Europe, and I wasn't willing to spend a lot of money for an Alienware, Clevo or AVA direct with a 7970M, which altough being excellent laptops are priced much higher than my NP700, I'm really happy with the performance of this lappy for the price I paid ;)


    Thanks!! :toast:

    I was aware that this was not a Kepler GPU, but I then I thought the club is called the GTX 600 owners, not he Kepler owners, so I figured my laptop could still be part of the club :p

    Appreciate your call, you rock!! :rockout:

    Yes this is the other important part of it.... The Chip is still called the GTX 675M which will fall under the GTX 600 series chips. Regardless of if it's a re-brand or not :)

    Also ... I know you knew this chip was a re-brand.... but others may not.... so if we can inform a few people who might not know.... this is a victory in my book. Not saying there's anything wrong with it being a re-brand... all GPU companies do it. But someone still might buy it misunderstanding that it is a 28nm kepler and not a 40nm Fermi.
    Either way it is an awesome chip deserving of the GTX 600 series name!!!

    Hey guys, thought I would run a test in Heaven 3.0:toast: I bumped up the settings a bit more compared to the Heaven 2.5 benchmark thread;)

    [​IMG]

    I'm going to do another run as I had FXAA on in the Nvidia Control Panel:p


    Ok now with FXAA off:D

    [​IMG]


    I done a slight overclock this time to see how much I would gain:p (FXAA is off)

    [​IMG]


    Ok this is my highest stable overclock that I could reach:rolleyes: and I am pretty happy with the results:toast::rockout: (FXAA is off)

    [​IMG]


    Max temps were 63C and fan speed was at 42% :cool:

    I am gonna have to re-run trying your settings....Nice runs!

    So you were running Heaven 2.5 last time? Okay.... What we should do is keep the versions.... even... if we are all gonna compare I would say Heaven 3.0 is what we should use since it's the newest.

    Lol thanks:toast:

    Yeah 2.5 last time, but prefer to be up to date with the latest version 3.0:rolleyes:

    Sounds good, can't wait to see you're results:rockout:

    Good runs, Lionheart!

    I was going to say you missed the extreme tessellation setting if you wanted to compare your scores with ours :)

    We should try to keep it consistent, before we have people comparing results with lots of different runs. Makes it easier for me too so I don't have to rerun tests a lot because I am a lazy, lazy guy! :laugh:

    Well guys I decided against getting rid of my Ivy Bridge CPU.... I figured.... if it turns out to be an unstable technology I always got my i7 2600K to fall back on.

    But the reason I brought this up.... is I just bought a new toy to compliment my i7 3770K..... It is the new Gigabyte G1 Z77 Sniper 3.

    They are up for sale at New Egg. for 279.00$. They have all the usual extras that go with the sniper series plus 4 way SLI/ Crossfire. They also get rid of that ugly gun heatsink.

    This new board should also help give all the gallup room for my GTX 680's. Will update later with benchmarks when I get it here and installed.

    Yay for me :)

    Cool. I didn't know they were for sale yet. Now that ASUS and EVGA have some real competition, hopefully they will drop the price of the P8Z77 WS and Z77 FTW.

    I still have no idea what the point of setting my target frame rate at 120 fps does.

    Found this on the EVGA forums.

    Frame Rate Target will essentially try and cap the frame rate to whatever you set it to. The clock speeds on the card will automatically dynamically adjust based on what is needed to maintain that frame rate at any given time. So if the demand is lower, then the card will downclock because that's all that it needs to maintain that FPS, or vice versa.. boost the clocks to maintain that frame rate under a more 3D intensive scene, for example. Useful for saving power and also for older games/applications which don't demand super high frame rates.

    Kind of useless on my 120 hz monitor then, pretty sure the GTX 680 will commit suicide trying to keep up 120 fps on some games.

    I'm thinking of getting a GTX 680 with an EK waterblock. What should I be looking at, OC wise? I've seen two cases of core clocks in the 1400s and a bunch in the 1200s, but none in the 1300s.

    Hey is there anyone here who would be willing to graph their GPU clock speeds vs fps in a game?

    As far as I know as long as you stay under 70 degrees then you're just going to have to hope that you get a good card that can reach 1.3 GHz. GTX 680s are more limited by the voltage limit Nvidia has put on them.

    There are a bunch of Heaven benchmarks with our clock speeds a few pages back, I think they demonstrate a decent fps-clock speed comparison. As for graphs most reviews on the 680 do have a graph on stock vs OC speeds, if that's enough for you.

    Now that I look at it, Lionheart has a good comparison right on this page. :)

    Well here is an example of one of my cards in the 1300's (and I haven't found the max core clock for this card yet)
    [​IMG]
    While the score is lower in this run with those types of clocks... (there were other mitigating circumstances contributing to that fact when this was run.) Either way..... here is the proof that 1300Mhz or higher is possible with the right card. But I do stress you need the right card.... these clocks are not guaranteed.

    1400Mhz although is not as likely unless a couple of things are happening.....

    1. You have a really, really lucky Non-Reference card

    2. You mod your GTX 680 For extra voltage or Mod it with extra hardware like VRM's and power connectors.

    The GTX 680's people are seeing that hit these clocks are done by Professional Overclockers who are sponsored and have 20 GTX 680's sitting around to mod.
    Most people will see clocks in the mid 1100's to low 1200's air cooled. And water cooled most will see mid 1200's to high 1200's.
    The voltage on these cards is what is holding back the GTX 680. It has been proven that if Nvidia and their partners would lift the voltage cap these cards would surpass 1300Mhz on a regular basis and approach 1400 on a good number of occasions.

    Some good news you will see from water cooling your cards is..... Your temps will never go above 40c. Because of this your overclock will not throttle like it would with air. So your benchmarks will be more stable. You will also like I said be able to achieve a little higher overclock then you would on Air. Plus.... noise from the fan won't be an issue either.

    No shit right..... I was waiting for this board or either the EVGA Z77 FTW or the Asus Z77 Formula.... which ever released first I was going to get..... I still think I got the best of the bunch:) <---- Gigabyte fan boy here sorry :)

    I would actually love to see if this setting could help with bench marking???? I mean if you force the cards to push for a certain Frame rate you know isn't possible.... would it help bring you your score??? HMMMM I feel an experiment coming on!

    I'm specifically trying to find out when the GPU clock is up and when it is down and cross that with fps at that moment.

    I need more then just average clock speeds and high/avg/min fps. I would need to know exactly what the GPU clock was at the time that the fps was recorded.

    Thanks for any help from anyone. :)

    Welcome.... Nice Overclock bud!

    Welcome.... Really nice Rig!

    Well I can get you some of that information.... but honestly the way these cards are made with clocks....it changes from game to game. Some games take clocks of 1059 to achieve 60FPS others take...500Mhz to achieve 60fps
