[THG] 690 has partly unlocked voltages?

post #1 of 12

Using EVGA’s excellent Precision X tool, we managed to push a 150 MHz core and 25 MHz memory offset using a 20%-higher power target. Stability was marginal at those settings, though, so we nudged the voltage up from its .988 V default up to 1.025 V, which kept the card from crashing.

i guess it justifies the price tag, it's super close in performance to 680GTX sli

Surely nvidia will release drivers that support voltmods on 680s too soon? Otherwise I might regret my latest buy nerdsmiley.png

I hope so as well however they took out 1 VRM from the final design, I'm not sure if they would risk pulling a 570gtx again (VRM's were blowing up while overvolting the catd)

Maybe, but most non-ref cards have extra VRMs. The Phantom 680 4GB that I ordered has 6 VRMs (2 extra)

Guru3D made the same innocent mistake thinking the voltage sliders do anything with these cards. They don't, not with the cards in their current form (even those with added VRM phases, does nothing for voltage).

Gotta wait for the non-references. There's already been 3 I've heard of that will have voltage control and a higher cap than 1.175v. I'll be looking into upgrading when they're released.

Your still within stock voltage limit, you only "kinda" force the voltage to stay constant for a while, but its still within stock.
