Also on the topic of voltages, it 1.3v likely to damage my card? I wan't to see how far I can push my 7870, I doubt i'll run it at 1.3v 24/7 as I can already get to 1300MHz core on about 1250mv.
Another concern for me is power consumption. Is GPU-Z's ampere reading at all accurate? Watts can be calculated using AMP's x Volts as far as I know but GPU-Z's maximum VDDC current reading is +500 amps so I'm not sure if the software can be considered accurate or not (it obviously not actually running at +500 amps).
Hmm so its positive a bug mis-read voltage on HD7870
Navit also has this weird voltage spikes. If you notice, GPU-Z also mis-read but sometimes. Hell, it was reading 1.84volt!!!
I hope MSI Afterburner or ATI bios or ATI driver fix this issue soon.
