He used 267.71.......
According to the GPU-Z screenshot, he did not use 267.71

http://tpucdn.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_590/images/gpuz_oc.gif



According to the image he posted in the review, it was running 267.52

All of that said, I am still disappointed but only slightly. I never see myself owning a $600+ card, If I were to come close, it would be 2 GTX 570's or 2 HD 6950's, Or future equivalents. But I still need to upgrade the rest of my system before I would worry about it.

i measured resistance across the fuse and it was blown. after fixing it the card blew again which means that there was some different issue causing the fuse to blow in the first place as protection.
Ah, OK. Very odd, to say the least...in the vid ECH linked to, you can see the fuse blow, but it looks to be the opposite one....very interesting indeed.

They dunno whut happened, yet the "fuse" is there. :laugh:

Is kinda funny that the ASUS 590 box says big and loud "Voltage Tweak" up to 50% faster :)
I think that might be the easter egg bta was referring to.

interesting find, must have happened at some point during switching cards back and forth. i retested max oc on the correct driver, got the same results and uploaded the screenshot.

the card blew on another rig which definitely had 267.71 installed (i double checked while on the phone with nvidia)

There is an Easter egg in the review. First to find gets a cookie.

Is it on page four (bottom photo) - the match above the chip

I think that's the first time. The lowest I see are 8.0's for the GTX 480 and the HD 3870X2.
yeah you're right, closet ones are the x550 7.5 and x1300 7.8 neither of which are flagships.

so it is the first time a flagship has scored this low on tpu.

I would recommend upping your power supply if you're going to be overclocking either the card or the CPU.

Uh, no, you guys just looked at pics, didn't read the text that explains why those figures are where they are. ;)

Rather than telling you why, I'll let you go and check it out for yourself :p
Actually I did read the text above the graphs and did not "just looked at the pics" but the wording between the sentence and what is used in the graphs is not the same so it was a little confusing.
