I have a "weird" Gigabyte 780 Ti Windforce.
Model on sticker specifies GV-N78TWF3-3GD. so supposedly it ain't neither an OC nor Ghz version (doesn't say that in the box). OC Guru reports stock 876/928 base/boost clocks however when on high load, it jumps to 1020Mhz! Is this normal?
My card didn't give me those famous artifacts these cards' users reported several times. However I had been experimenting many hangups (updated to latest nvidia drivers) but ONLY when gaming. When on benchmarks like Furmark or Kombustor, or CUDA 3D rendering in Vray RT, no crashes. I downgraded to the drivers version that came up with the card (362) and it's stable for gaming now.
My issue is I want to sell this card, but I need to be sure it's stable. Would you recommend updatint to a newer BIOS? Newest for this card is 80.80.34.00.72 FC1. However the notes say:
F1, it can only be updated with VBIOS versions F2-F9.
F10, it can only be updated with VBIOS versions F11-F19.
F20, it can only be updated with VBIOS versions F21-F29.
Where do I get this info from?
Supposedly stock 780 Ti clocks to 1020Mhz
Hangups on games
Recommended to update BIOS or does it worsen situation?
