Shut Up AMD and take my money.
on the OC...
The publicly software is in reality a beta of GPU Tweak... (Which is not available on the Asus Website at the moment)...
Man this sucks!!! I wish I had the money to setup up a new gaming rig right now.Hardware is lookin good these days.
meh, i don't hear anything out of my 6870's but then again i do have a set of swift tech blocks on em.
just go liquid and quit complaining. you can have your cake and eat it too. camaro+leaf+more power+more handling+more braking= AMG mercedes.
ill wait til these 2 6870's cant cut the mustard then get either 7xxx or 8xxx performance gpu for cheap
Healthy oc's are a bonus. I'm equally stoked about ZeroCore technology. A long overdue feature IMO. If Kepler doesn't offer something similar, shame on nVidia!
This guy did it too: http://hwbot.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36837
Tell that to me I'm still on this 4 year old lovely Phenom 9550 x4, with an nvidia 8200 IGP (hey, its still a very respectable system, also I can upgrade to a Phenom II X6 later)
I even received and old LCD monitor as gift and I can't plug it in because my mobo lacks a second video output
Until your man juices get flowing and persuade you otherwise. America is the epicenter of pleasure we design cars to do just that
Dude im on a Aspire One netbook... although I do have a PS3 but its just not the same once you had a kickass gaming rig.... my last one was a Q6600,2 HIS HD2900xts in CF with Vista 64bit ,4gbs G.skill,no such thing as SSD in the main stream back then.. had a couple of 36gig raptors in raid0..OCZ 750 psu.... now im struggling just to put together a HTPC with some old socket 775 parts....not going so good either
Wow. Let's not get into that.
Mustang Boss 302R..... done and done
Looks like they were both using old drivers for 3DMark11! new scores @ ~1.25ghz is P12,000+
Ok if we compare new EVGA GTX580 classifide 3Gb which is also with voltage tune can hit over 1.2Ghz with 7970, how much be the different ?
10% or maybe less
These cards are just insane...
Did you see this
3Dmark 11 P15063 @ 1700Mhz
Faster than SLI 590 @ P13425 + 6990 Xfire @ P13734
"I asked two people at NVIDIA why Fermi is late; nVidia's VP of Product Marketing, Ujesh Desai and NVIDIA's VP of GPU Engineering, Jonah Alben. Ujesh responded: because designing GPUs this big is f**king hard."
I keep thinking about that statement as this 4billion+ transistor GPU launches.
I'm not a fan boy either way. I always buy the card with the best performance for dollar. This card looks nice. Good performance increase over the previous generation. I only hope for pricing reasons that Nvidia and team Green has an answer for this. AMD may be stinking it up in the processor segment but ATI has certainly paid off for them.
dang,, 68C on stable 1,2Ghz overclock.
can't wait for non-reference card from HIS or Sapphire
Don't forget the card was throttled by the protection power circuitry. Please see my article update.
hi there i was the guy who did it.
these were the furmark settings used:
even on the other benchies and BF3 (which walls the CPU to 99%), didn't see the temps go above the magical 66 degrees (toasty Singapore ambient), measured by onboard i2c sensor and ma fingers.
you can verify this with all the other overclockers who have cards
Thats easy to answer why would ATI release a card which pushes the limits of the 28nm GPU when its only just be released doing it this way they can just release a faster clocked version and call it a 8970 after nvidia releases there next GPU all the 7970 is its just cock tease for nvidia to make them show there ballz.
You may be right. It's certainly plausible.
Yes, but the GPU would have been throttled back by the protection circuit wouldn't it? The framerate was quite low at 40fps.
since TPU has a card you guys can try the overclocked load temps with the fan speeds at 100%. I did check for performance improvement with every clock increment to check if there was throttling (not with furmark though)
Interesting. Still, the framerate seems pretty low. I'm sure I had better than that with my cards at that sort of resolution and they're not as fast as this one.
My guess is that it only throttled in furmark.
DIdn't it require 1 nuclear reactor to power it too?
Anyways, what I really want to see is Sapphire's HD7970 Toxic, 1335Mhz core is like "HOLY COWS" to me
