I'm *sooooooo* tempted to get another 7970 right now. :(

Just took a peek at the gtx680 owners club and sv thomas still has issues this time seems hardware related and SLI setup is limited to only 2gb for each card and BF3 is kickings the gtx680's ass so is crysis 2 which they are saying its best to avoid running the card at highest settings. Also Metro 2033 seems to also pose a problem as well. SV Thomas is getting alot of microstutter smh.


And M3t4lh34d posted this

I'm glad I Held onto my 3 7970s. I just popped the 3 680s I got in today ahead of time before the 4th arrived, and I'm already having problems. Gameplay is fine, and the 3 680s perform nearly IDENTICAL to my 3 7970s. Even the 3dmark11 score (when the 680s would make it through the run) were only 400 points apart on my 3930k @ 4.7ghz.

The main problem I'm having is during 3dmark11 runs or even during BF3 (which never happened EVER with my 7970s), the PC will completely lose power. No BSOD. Nothing. Just poof, it's off. I'm running a 1200W PSU and there's NO way it's not enough power for the 680s when my 3 7970s ran just fine OC'd.

What I'm wondering is, have any of you running Tri-SLI setups or any of you with 680s for that matter been having this issue? Is it perhaps a driver issue?

I'm contemplating cancelling the 4th 680 and grabbing a cheap 7970 for Quadfire instead.

Let me know if any of you have experienced this problem.

I'm running the latest Nvidia driver as of today on their site btw.

Both camps will have problems with hardware and software you will still have to do workarounds and adjust settings and try all sorts of installs for drivers.

The only thing I really miss about Nvidia is driver based Ambient Occlusion. It was seriously a very thoughtful addition from them and adds nicely to games with lots of shadows. Oh their transparency only super sampling was nice to but I literally never found a game it worked it. I know driver forced AA is hit or miss in a lot of games but it's way worse on Nvidia unless your willing to put in the time with Inspector.

I wish AMD would add it in even though a lot of games have AO thru their own engines.

I have experience with OCing, so it's not first time I'm doing this. Really don't know whats the deal here.
Also, I tried both BIOS 1 & 2.

Hmm, when MSI AB request reset do it, then he will properly register GPU voltage.
Mine was registering 1.093V with AMD overdrive and without reset, with reset and shutting down overdrive, i am getting GPU voltage like i sould, 0.993V.
And also what type of crash you are getting? Black screen, hard lock?

Looks like my card suffers from HSF problem. It's hardlocking after few seconds.
I've RMAed it.

We do not have to do tons of tweaks just because some coders who is working for AMD cant make a proper driver. I dont want to spend a few hours per day to fix driver issues. I dont want to format my pc tons of times. I dont want to install drivers one by one to try and see if they will work or not. Most of us payed more than what Nvidia users payed for their 680 but instead of good service all we get is nothing. We dont have to deal with this kind of issues. We need plug in our card install drivers and we should be good to go. Thats how things work for Nvidia. How hard to do the same ?
There are no forums to get official replies. This is enough to realize difference between 2 companies but i do understand why they dont have proper forums. Otherwise it would be full of messages like mine and surely it wouldnt help them to sell cards.
Good bye AMD you will not be missed. I will never ever put any AMD product inside of my case. I am sorry if i sound mad but these issues pissed me off a lot. I really feel tired of it.
I want to thank people who tried to help me under this thread, thank you so much for sharing your time.
and good luck with your cards i hope everything works well for you guys.



I don't know what all the craziness is about the drivers lately. My drivers / GPU work perfectly and have on every driver since release. If I have ever had a slight problem I just use ATiman's uninstaller and then install the new driver and, bam, it works perfectly.

Never had a wake from sleep issue, never had a bsod, never had a lock up, never had lines across the screen, never had anomalies in games. Everything works perfectly.

I have never had any issues as well. I believe people are having issues with crossfire or eyefinity mostly. I also know people who have no issues in Crossfire and have eyefinity setups running as well.

I think you'll be happy with your move, I switched from crossfire 7970s for the same reason. I now run sli 680s at 5760x1080 and am quite happy with my decision to switch. SLI feels just as smooth as a single 680 (it's bloody impressive), and surround has been painless for me thus far. Most importantly, I haven't had a single bluescreen since I switched. Not one. Nor have I had _any_ need to reinstall my system, I didn't even reinstall coming from the AMD drivers. thumb.gif Best of luck to you

My Core's clocks:

1050Mhz - 1.112V. -> Mem 1400 I'd like
1100Mhz - 1.167V. -> Mem 1450 I'd like
What I've to do? ASIC 73.2%. Default Voltage 1.031 @900Mhz.

Try to increase voltage for the memory from 1.6V to 1.7V, i am running 1575 on stock voltage for more than a week, and everything is ok.

Is 1.7 on voltage totally safe? I once added 24mV and got scared:) ..no cooling on mem=\
