Well my Asus HD7950 DC2 TOP does 1850MHz on the memory ROCK SOLID in games and benchmarks on stock 1.6V [Hynix memory IC's (H5GQ2H24MFR-T2C) ] ..

At 1900MHz starts to artifacts and eventually crashes with GSOD.. tongue.gif

I use it at 1750MHz for 24/7 operation though.. wink.gif

As long as you have the Hynix ICs and not the Elpida, you are rocking.

nice thumb.gif

i wonder if the non top version has the same IC's thinking.gif

My Gigabyte 7950 is either a dud or there's something wrong with the voltage regulation on the card. The vdroop on it is ridiculous....I can set it at at 1.3v in trixx or afterburner but the actual voltage (measured with GPUZ) is only about 1.180v and I can barely get it stable at 1050mhz. It isn't voltage locked because the voltage does change but I simply can't give it enough real voltage to get a decent OC out of it. I wish I could RMA but it's stable at it's rated 900mhz so that's not an option.

I've got my 7970 GHz Edition running solid at 1180MHz core and 1600MHz memory (6.4GHz effective) on stock voltage with the board power turned all the way up to 20. I tried to get it to go to 1200MHz core but no matter how much voltage I put into it, it will not run at 1200MHz. Kind of disappointing that I couldn't get those last 20MHz out of it. For some reason, voltage changes have absolutely no effect on this card. Even at 1.3V, I get game crashes and graphical anomalies. I guess 1180MHz is the most that this card will do.

I also have gigabyte 7950. i think there is a relation between asic and vdroop which is - LOWER ASIC = HIGHER VDROOP. Got arround 0.05v vdroop in Heaven 3 between value setted in AB and gpu-z reading. However, in BF3 vdroop is smaller (like 0,02 , even none).

i have asic 59% and got stable 1100mhz with 1,175v (set on AB) - DISASTER.

Hy guys,

I have a crossfire of 7970 ( even a trifire but I probably sell the third), and I play at 1920*1080 with settings ultra, AA, AF and AO and where I Can mods:

would it be better an I7-920 at 4,51Ghz (memory at 1730 CL8)?

Or an I7-980X at 4,4 Ghz (memory at 2000 CL8)?

Thanks a lot!

Odd. 20mhz from 1200 on stock volts and the card will not hit 1200. You sure your voltage setting is being applied?

Yes. Like I already said, the voltage change had no effect. I was monitoring the voltage with GPU-Z and the voltage changes were being applied. I actually found this review of the 7970 GHz Edition where they hit the same 1180MHz wall:

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/06/21/amd_radeon_hd_7970_ghz_edition_video_card_review/6
Quote:
The video cards voltage is supposed to "vary to optimize performance." We never saw this happening in game or while idling. We had an on-screen display that constantly reported 1.162 Volts. We manually increased the voltage to 1.3 Volts, the highest amount that the video card can handle. Our on-screen display and MSI Afterburner both displayed 1.3 Volts, however we could not get 1MHz more performance on the core without experiencing crashes or visual anomalies.

The AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition did not benefit any from us manually increasing the voltages. Sometimes video cards just do not overclock as well as others. We have seen Radeon HD 7970's reaching 1250MHz and above up to 1300MHz on the core. By increasing PowerTune to 20% we found our highest stable overclock of 1180MHz. Even by manually forcing the GPU's voltage to 1.3 Volts, we were unable to increase the operating speeds anymore.

Often times when overclocking we find a video cards limitations not by driver crashing, but by visual anomalies that appear in game and ruin the image quality or fail to load textures. When we tried to overclock the AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition past 1180MHz these anomalies showed up everywhere in both Battlefield 3 and The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition. In Max Payne 3 we would just get driver and system crashes.

Thanks a lot!

Assuming you're just gaming? You will see no to little performance difference in most games from swapping to a 980x unless you can clock it higher then the i7 920. Most games use a single or dual cores so single core performance needs to be good in comparison to multi cores, of course if you're doing video editing/'rendering the 980x is a massive increase in performance.

The memory won't make any difference to most games again and negligible to any games that it does (Less then 1FPS), I assume the i7 920 can't do 2000MHz on the memory and you're assuming the 980x can?

I'd suggest getting a i7 3770k rig if you do need to upgrade the CPU, or a 3930k if you can afford that but again for games six slower cores isn't as good as 4 faster cores (Ever so slightly)
