The 7970 is currently getting over 8500 PPD (1125 MHz core).

long thread is long, so sorry if it's been answered, but have you tried running multiple GPU clients on the same GPU to see if PPD goes up? doing so took my 6950 over 9000 ppd, which makes me think it's under utilizing the 6k series, and looking at your ppd there makes me wonder the same thing.

Hm, this card is nice but I wonder if anyone will come out with water blocks for them. Triple slot cooler effectively limits your card count to two. I'd rip that cooler off, replace the silly 3-slot back plate with a 2-slot if water blocks came out. Could run my Eyefinity 5 setup with this baby.

The only way I'd choose 2 of these over 7990/7970 is if the msi/sapphire edition was indeed clocked at 1300mhz and 6gb or vram. My asus x79 sabertooth board could fit two cards of this size no problem with its 2 16x slots spaced out so well. If these are only clocked at 1000mhz and 3gb i'll pass and see what MSI and Sapphire comes out with or stick with the 7990/7970 reference plan.

New driver:

3% (up to) performance improvement in BF3?

LOL

Why even bother. At 60 fps thats an extra 1.8fps.

Call me when its a 10% increase.

1200 / 1575 Mhz seems to be stable for me in unigine heaven. Also stock volt 1174mV... biggrin.gif

Yay, just got one Visiontek, left on doorstep. Thanks UPS. rolleyes.gif The box surprisingly rattles. They're not so good at making packing that doesn't allow the card to rattle around lol. C'mon man, don't let my 550 dollar rattle around!

This is the perfect example of why we shouldn't be panicking about grey power connectors VID's and other non-sense. It doesn't seem to matter. You may get lucky, you may not.

My Sapphire box rattled too. My driver cd was loose, it had cardboard pieces all over it and I was like, "did they seriously just drop the cd into the box without a sleeve?". The cd fell out of the sleeve....because all the cables, cd, paper work was just thrown into the box. Disappointed for a $550 card. My other cheaper $200 sub cards were better well packaged.

Did anyone touch the power control setting in CCC? I didn't use my CCC to overclock yet, I read that it's needed to push power control to +20% to get it more stable. Does that mean higher temps if I do? And would MSI AB override any changes or vice versa?

Edit: Seems like CCC is overriding AB even when I just touch the power control slider. Anyway to use power control, but AB to OC?

Does not appear to be reference design, so putting them under water may prove difficult, at least with full cover.

^^It's a DCII, it's not ref on purpose. But the ironic thing is they finally wised up and put some damn sinks on the memory lol. They just flatoout copied MSI's TF cooler. If you can't beat them, copy them!
