Your acting like we will be able to add voltage on these cards at some point??

FWIW, Precision X does seem to allow you to boost the voltage from 1.162 up to 1.175. I was skeptical of this, but am testing now and it does work. I wish Afterburner could correctly apply this change.. I'm just not a fan of the Precision interface. No harm in running them both for now I guess..

It's a possibility. The VRM on these cards does go up to 2.3v, but that doesn't mean the cards themself have the other necessary infrastructure to allow this. I made a post here with some more info on this, maybe someone can figure it out tongue.gif

I think it can happen, these cards just came out this month, give it another couple months and i'm sure someone will at least have made some headway into it.

Yeah, collectively, we definitely have some 'terminology' issues with these cards at the moment redface.gif

I consider the 'stock clock' (i.e. 980MHz) to be basically a meaningless number, and the 'boost clock' to be equivalent to what used to be the 'stock clock' on older cards. So, in the scenario described, I'd consider 1059 to be the card's 'effective stock clock', and 130MHz (1189-1059) the 'Kepler Boost', aka the amount that automatically gets added to whatever the cards 'boost clock' is. However that number varies from sample to sample ... but that happens to be my Kepler Boost as well thumb.gif

And when you OC the card via AB or what not, what you're doing is increasing the boost clock by however many MHz, then for 'operating frequency', you end up with 130MHz on top of that from Kepler Boost.

That's how I think of it anyways, hopefully we'll come up with terminology consensus eventually.

I am under the impression thats it locked down in hardware so thats it. Not sure how software can have any affect on that.

Would I lie to you?

I feel the same way, not a huge Precision X fan, prefer AB.

The change to 1.175 though does net me about 30MHz core clock (1337 --> 1367) so it's kinda cool, but ... I'm gonna stick w/the lower clock and 1.162V for 24/7. It's hot down in AZ ...

Maybe ... but I'm holding out hope that it's not. I think thing's will be clearer in the upcoming weeks. Still early in the game I think.

I definitely hope you guys are right. I would love for it not to be true but I'm definitely not holding out hope.

Sucks about the voltage thing with AB. I really don't like Precision. Used AB for so long. I'll have to do some testing when my card shows up and see if it affects my clocks.

Safe to say that AB will eventually fix the problem, it's obviously a software related issue (ie, bug or oversight) since precision can hit 1.175.
