It's either that or within promoting the card to a 680 from being a 670 they clocked the core much higher.
I am actually starting to think that the 300MHz difference may be speedboost, but man that's one huge step and then 50MHz beyond that.

exactly, this is the same discussion with car guys saying a factory supercharged car (Ie GT500, ZR1, ZL1 etc) are modified cars? FFS they're out of the plant that way therefore they're stock !

Microstutter is such a blown-out-of-proportion myth as far as I am concerned. I've had both single and SLI 560Ti and 580 setups and SLI is 100% better than single card in my opinion. I use a 120Hz monitor with two 580 Lightnings currently and there is absolutely no hiccups at all in my games (BF3 at 100+FPS on 120Hz is butter-smooth). I will NEVER own a single GPU setup again as long as I live....

Eh, of course it's not thread dependent.

If it does depend on load and your CPU isn't bottlenecking the GPU to hell and back, I'd imagine you'd see 1GHz 24/7. 700=70% of 1000. So the GPU is most likely going to have to dip well below 70% usage to clock down to 700MHz.

If all that works out to be true and I didn't just mutter crap, I would genuinely consider 1006MHz to be stock (or whatever the mean frequency is when the GPU is 100% utilized).
There's no reason to clock the GPU higher if it's not 100% utilized, unlike a CPU.

I totally agree that this new "speed boost" feature has nothing at all to do with the 680's absolute overclocking potential. Those who are saying that speed boost clocks = max OC potential must not have heard of Intel's latest CPU's which also use a turbo multi to reach stock speeds of 3.8-3.9GHz, but whose ultimate overclocks go well beyond 5GHz.... rolleyes.gif

Similar to my 2500k. It'll idle at 1.3Ghz, stock at 3.3Ghz and turbo to 3.599Ghz yet still over clocks stable at 4.4Ghz on crappy stock air cooling.

Right. NV is most likely going to have a safe voltage thresh hold like every other component does unless these 1006MHz and 1050/1100 (or whatnot) speed steps aren't obtainable 100% of the time. Then you may actually be looking at a not so stellar OC.

I wonder if they are conveniently basing the 195w TDP on 700MHz. I don't know if they'd be so brash though.

I haven't seen microstutter, therefore it doesn't exist despite there being reports and evidense contradicting what I'm saying

I totally concur. I couldn't imagine being limited to the performance of one card lol.
