GTX470 915mhz OC Versus GTX580 stock clocks? - Page 7

But the 915mhz OC was just for fun really. To me the GTX470 at stock clocks performs admirably in any game that I play. The 915mhz clock is just to know that I can if I ever need to.
Metro2033 seems to like GPU OC because it can be stable on lower voltages. Try Witcher 2/Crysis/Unigine 2.5 with extreme tesselation and see if there's artefacts or driver fail.

I don't think anyone here is "rubbing it in." I think that is in your mind. But of course I am pleased that I was able to get stock 580 performance out of a $162 investment, just like a person who oc'd a 580 would be happy to get stock 590 performance.

For sure, my previous 480gtx sli was also very close in performance, just unbearable in noise and temps

By the way, sorry for hi-jacking the thread, guys! Won't happen again.
I think Booty Warrior made the same observation as I but in very few lines, and that should've been enough. My bad!

Tri-SLI should be amazing!
Quad SLI will maybe be let down by the scaling, no?
Anyone has benchings on that??

Listen here money bags, if you send me the board I'll get the cards and blocks

Wait for Ivy though, because ... because.

I'm poor too

Only boards that would do this is the EVGA 4-way and the Gigabyte x58-ud9 (lets leave the beasty sr-2 out for now, also I think I'm also missing another mb too, ), and to keep up a Gulftown.

^ lol

Hopefully you won't need a NF200 chip for quad SLI at x8 2.0 with Ivy.

But you know I'm dreaming anyways.



Yeah I have no idea what I'm talking about!


Shouldn't you be able to split 3.0 x8 lanes (2 of them) into four x8 2.0 lanes?) Dreamer!!

We needs two nf200 for four 16x lanes. Every bit counts for benchmarks . I'm sure EVGA will be able to stick two of them in their IB boards.

The other option is you send me your two 580s and I'll test them out side by side.
