Ok - some questions.
Seeing that most 7970's regardless of vendor are hitting 1125Mhz Core and for the most part leaving it at stock 1375Mhz Memory. Noticing no voltage bump.
A. What's the stock voltage? Does it vary even for same vendors?
B. Anyone run a 3DMark11 bench on single 1920x1200 resolution monitor? I don't see any in the first page specs. Didn't notice anyone with screen shots of benchmarks with validation.
C. For those running at 1275Mhz Core 1575Mhz Memory what is your voltage set at? Is this a safe 24/7 over clock?
D. Anyone tackle 3D Vision blu-ray or 3D Vision gaming on a 120Hz monitor? Where can I find the info on how to accomplish this with AMD? I've got an expensive Alienware OptX AW2310 monitor and it would really help me make the move back to AMD if I could figure out how to get the 3D Vision going.
Thanks in advance for anyone's assistance.
A. AB reports my stock voltage on my ASUS as 1174mv, but ASUS GPU Tweak sees it as 1168mv. On top of that, Sapphire Trixx reports it as 1170mv. At this point I'm not even sure what exact stock VID I have. I've seen other people reporting as low as 1.05v for ASUS cards.
B. I did a run @ 1920x1080, 1120/1650 on memory. Vantage and 11.
C. My card refuses to go over 1120 with reasonable fan profile, no matter the voltage and powertune settings. I suspect it's VRM temperature, or something else is getting too hot, because GPU temp is low 70s. Memory went all the way to 1650 without any problems, and I think I can push it higher. For now I settled for 1120/1650 at 1174mv in AB. I've tried lowering stock VID as other people suggested, but it didn't help. Going from 925 to 1120 on stock volts is not bad by any means, I'm just puzzled it does't respond too well to voltage on air. I'm going to wait and see, maybe there is a workaround to this.
D. As far as I can tell, you can't do 3D with AMD on AW2310. My 3D Vision kit is on vacation for now too.
