Yep, ASUS vendor so I am sure!

plus I believe GPU tweak doesnt work with NON Asus cards.

What is ECL?

 

Have a look at the main post under 7970 Overclocking, it mentions what to do with ECL.  Extended Clock Limits (might work on voltages too) you launch Afterburner for it, but it makes registry changes.  Those registry changes are effective for multiple programs.

 

Worth a shot.

If you're going to talk the talk then walk the walk...

When people bring up the cooler/quieter/power argument, well...

Lol, yeah! I don't really care about cooler or quieter. For me its just which is faster at the max. Between these two cards its hard to say, thus this thread! thumb.gif

I'm new to bench competition. I have one question.

IF this series AMD 7970 claims they now run tessellation as good as Nvidia, why do we have to run two benchmarks with Tess on & off to enter? Isn't the point of benching to have the highest possible graphic settings offered?

When I game I look to have settings turned up as far as I can go. Wouldn't that pertain to benching?

On a side note, there should be a 'How to overclock the GTX 680' like the tips provided for the 7970. To be fair, for a noob bencher (like myself) to join in the fray as well. tongue.gif

They're better than the 5000s were, but its still not really close at all when it comes to extreme tessellation.
