Oh for sure. Just didn't want some people to misunderstand.

On the whole binning of any cards for that matter.

Vendors grab a bunch of chips for their factory over clocked models and bin them to run at the preset over clocked speeds they will be selling them. Guaranteeing the card will run at the advertised speed and to assure themselves from having to replace a card under warranty.

The full potential of over clocking vanilla vs SC, Signature, or FTW cards are still up to luck of the lottery. EVGA doesn't bin ALL their VRAM, which in turn means the vanilla card that wasn't binned in the first place can run as high or higher than the other cards, again up the chance of the silicone lottery.

It also means it doesn't guarantee the SC cards can over clock higher than the factory preset over clock anyway.

So buying a factory preset over clocked card doesn't mean is going to over clock better than vanilla more than the preset over clock speeds advertised.

When I first bought an EVGA card I had this assumption based on what I heard from others in the past. However my 580 SC card though was a good over clocker up to 950 MHz was really just being lucky because their were many vanila cards that over clocked just as well for $20 less.

As for the Signature and FTW cards with extra power and extra VRM's I can see those being able to achieve higher over clocks but it's still yet to be determined how much better and if they over clock more consistently higher across the board.

I bought the SC version on the 680 because it was just the flavor I'm used to coming from a 580 SC and no more than that. I wasn't expecting it to be a better over clocker than the vanilla. In fact I see some vanilla cards already matching and beating my 1254 Mhz core.
Classified cards are a bit different. On the 580's they ran out of the box at 900 Mhz Core and EVGA was very confident in saying it could be over clocked to 1000 Mhz core in their advertisements. They were binned for a lot higher Cores and came with a higher premium price. I've seen them run as high as 1100 Mhz with voltage bumps that were possible with 14 PWM's and more power being fed into the card.

It's going to be interesting to see what the FTW cards and the Classifieds of the 680's will be able to do.

Yes I do agree on the Classy's. There must be some sort of binning there when they are willing to (almost but not really) guarantee 1ghz on the core. Which is excellent for a 580. I wonder how much of that is the beefy vrm's. I know its a pretty big part of it because the 580 lightnings also consistently clocked better then reference.

From reading the owners in the 580 oc club you got a dud lightning if it couldn't do 950.

Speaking of all this. I was wondering last night what software a company like evga uses to bin/test gpu's. Is it something common in a windows environment or something custom. It would be cool to use what evga uses. Since they obviously know what they are doing.

Lol but they did send me a 580 in an rma that was artifacting like crazy instantly.

Well, I finally got it. Sadly, I won't get to put it in till probably tomorrow afternoon and won't get a chance to really play around with it till Saturday afternoon. frown.gif This thing is going to torment me all day sitting here at work with me.

Nice card, Jbob. I can only imagine your pain. I've got a new PSU sitting here - not nearly as sexy as a new GPU - and I'm cracking up. So you must be losing it.
