Could you explain what VID based control is? Thanks.
The caption for the picture of the memory chip says "K4G10325FE-HC05" but the chip itself shows "..-HC04." Not sure if it's a typo or mixup or maybe Zotac really is using faster memory If so one would hope memory oc;ing would be better than other cards but it doesn't seem to be.
fixed the memory chip description. added to overclocking: ZOTAC's card also uses faster memory chips (1250 MHz vs. 1000 MHz), but this can't make any difference in our testing, which suggests that the GPU memory controller is limiting the memory speed, not the memory chips.
Thanks W1zzard .. nice review.
Is this true !?
16 by 16 mm = 256 mm
i measured 14.8 x 15.4
GF106 Has different sizes
umm what are you saying?
Nothing .. I just wonder
I believe your measure
I believe that is is like the VID control that is used in processors for Cool n' Quiet/Speed Step. It allows voltage control on the cheaper non-I2C voltage controllers using driver calls to lower and raise voltages, it is less precise then direct I2C control, but still better than nothing.
I'm pretty sure nVidia implemented it to allow the voltage to be lowered when the card is idle to save power.
