10 out of 1000? With such a statement, I must question if you've actually ever participated in the 7970 owners club thread.

I've been actively participating in the thread since the 7970 hit the market on January 9th, and I can tell you that there are A LOT more then just 10 people, and whom you merely consider to be "lucky".

No sir, but you are simply mistaken,. And I can smell you're newly found bias towards the 680 from a mile away. The 7970 overclocks like crazy, and it is perhaps the greatest overclocking GPU on the market, currently.

Lol, alternate is 5km from my home and they have the msi for €489 and the gigabyte and asus for €499 in stock.

I agree, in perspective it's actually pretty darn solid for a stock card, stable. There's this pervasive myth out there that all 7970's hit 400mhz oc's all day and night long when it's not the case, most of them are 150-200mhz(at most) bumps for 24/7 stability (for a ~1075-1125mhz operating speed) without making the card into a vacuum cleaner on noise (and even then most of them don't respond to much further voltage bumps, anyway). If we can really expect +150-200 on the GTX 680 as a typical average, that makes clocks of ~1250-1300 generally achievable from a stock of around 1100 max turbo. The OC percentages aren't really going to be that different typically it appears.
We may get a little more from further drivers/tools as well. Assuming the quote above is correct (which I'm sure it's pretty accurate), you're talking an average of say 15% oc (1270 turbo) on a GTX 680 vs. 19% on a Radeon 7970 (1100). With the gtx 680's performance advantage and $50 lower price, it's still a huge contender even for oc'ers using their rigs for gaming/24-7 usage.

You speak as if you've owned multiple 7970s like some of us have. I've owned FIVE 7970s and ALL of them would do 1250, with 2 able to hit 1350, and another able to do 1300, so no that is NOT representative of 'average' overclocks on the 7970. Not to mention mine were on air, and if I watercooled them, I could easily flash the ASUS BIOS onto them and increase the voltage another .01v and probably get closer to 1400mhz.

Don't speak about things if you don't have personal experience with them.

Average of 1100 on the 7970 and 1270 on the 680?! Have you lost it? ROFL, there is no way in hell that 1100mhz is the average for 7970s. 1100 is the average for 7950s yes, but NOT 7970s. People that can't hit at least 1200 are having such issues because of software issues or lack of tweaking ability. The fact that I bought FIVE different cards from seperate locations and ALL of them hit 1250 - 1350 should be indicative of general overclockability. Even the weakest card of mine would do 1140 on stock voltage.

GoldenTiger, you clearly have a Bias towards 680s/Nvidia as others have said and it shines through in your posts. You really shouldn't make it THAT obvious...

You're saying 10 out of 1000 people are able to get nice clocks with 7970s? I guess I'm EXTREMELY lucky then, having 4 out of 5 cards that would OC 400mhz... rolleyes.gif

I said 10 *people* out of 1000 posts, as an example. Read before flaming. The rest of this tripe is inaccurate, so I will not bother responding to it... I kept close tabs on the 7970 thread as it expanded for reference 7970's and the truth is for 24/7 usage people are using hyperbolic statements regarding the 7970's oc'ability, exaggerating hugely for stock cooling @ normal noise levels (i.e. non-vacuum cleaner with maxed volts). Finally, on GTX 680 oc'ing, you do realize most people have no idea what they're actually doing yet properly to OC them, right? It's a common topic in the GTX 680 threads in the nvidia subforum here and everywhere. EVGA's JacobF has mentioned most should reach a +150-200 offset which would put them at 1250-1300 core on average with turbo, hence the average of 1270 in my comparison. The bulk of Radeon 7970's have long been proven to reach, TYPICALLY and on AVERAGE, around 1075-1125, hence the 1100 average I stated.

P.S. I find it humorous that you try to claim someone's biased when you can't help but post in every 680 thread in existence to crap it up as much as possible, oftentimes outright lying about card features in an attempt to try to steer people away despite clearly not owning or having any interest in the GTX 680 whatsoever. I'm just stating the facts, not my fault they aren't how you like them, the rest of us live in reality here and are discussing products we have bought.

Again, I was giving a rough example of say 10 people out of 1000 posts made... people tend to post a LOT in these owner threads about their same card(s). I do think it's again pretty humorous people are so into the "red vs green" thing: I care what is best, and the GTX 680 clearly is in the current market. Other than being burnt by AMD's drivers a lot, I couldn't care less who manufacturers my card's chips.

Indeed m3t4lh34d its so obvious you are an amd fanboy out to bash the 680 at every point, and if the 7970 is so amazing why are you making threads asking for help because they dont work propely in bf3 cause of crappy drivers and poor support. thumb.gif

When I checked, the only site that listed them was 4launch (typically not known for the best prices), and they only had 2 Asus cards. Good things come to those who wait... unfortunately, patience has never been one of my virtues.

post #699 of 880
All I know is Goldentiger has absolutely no clue what he is talking about when it comes to 7970 OCing. The guy who has had 5 of them has said his worst will hit 1250. Mine will hit 1300 and do 1150 on stock volts. Dude is literally just making stuff up. I knew he was a fanboy but he used to at least come up with fact based arguments and now when it's become clear initial reviews really didn't hit all the marks he is reduced to making wildly inaccurate statements about a card he doesn't own.

I've owned two, actually, thank you very much. I'm also talking about *ON STOCK or NEAR-STOCK* volts, i.e. normal 24/7 settings with usable heat levels and fan-speeds that don't crash after 20 minutes of gaming, when saying oc numbers, as I said if you raise volts and have to turn it into a dustbuster fan-noise, it's not really usable. Why exactly are you guys in here crapping up a GTX 680 thread when you don't own, have no interest in owning, and never have owned one?
