Gigabyte GTX 670 OC Version *HANDS ON* - Page 140

post #1391 of 1506
Well, I messed a bit with the card and, I don't know how to feel about this, looks like I got a pretty bad one.

The core barely overclocks, anything past 70 crashes, the memory seems to do well though, 550 crashes it, 525 can do a Heaven run.

I didn't do a long test for stability yet, will do so later.

525 can barely do a heaven run, it crashes right after it ends and 3dmark11 crashes midway. Trying 500 on the memory now, so far, it did a 3dmark11 run without issues.

I noticed in reviews some cards have higher boost frequency than others, is this an indicator of how well the card will overclock? mine has a max boost of 1150Mhz, which seems kind of low.

Mine boosts up to 1201 core stock. The highest I've been stable in heaven maxed settings is 1267. That's with a 65 mhz core increase and 160 mhz memory increase. I keep mine at 55 mhz core and 155 memory which is 1256 mhz.

Well, 1215 / 3504 it is, Left heaven running for an hour and played metro 2033 for 90 minutes with no crashes.

+70 core and +500 memory, kind of meh to be honest, many people seem to be getting theirs up to 1280~ on the core easily

Well mine out of the box would only boost to 1180 or something but I got a lucky one I run 1310 Core and 3703 Mem that's my 24/7 clock I can go higher but it's not 100% stable.

Even though mine OCed well there are some Gigabytes running 1350+ & 3750+ still it could be worse like a couple of previous Nvidia & Ati cards where I could barely get 20mhz OC more out of them ( im looking at you Mr GTX 280)

Yeah, it could be worse (not by much mind you), still doesn't make it that I drew the short stick end : (

By the way, I just noticed the the Power % didn't go over 90% for the whole session, is that normal? Seems a bit pointless to increase the power threshold to 112% when it doesn't even go to 100% under full load.

I never see power go higher than fifty on my card with maximum power and v sync off during game play. Since then I've changed power management to adaptive and turned on v sync. With those settings power never goes over forty. I've since put my card to default settings.

I think (dont quote me) because the Gigabyte cards use a non reference PCB and have increased phases for power etc. the TDP dosent get anywhere near as high as say a reference card which can hit 100%+, another good thing about your card, this also goes for other non ref cards such as Asus etc

Thank you.
I mainly play BF3. I turn off MSAA and the frames are in the 70s 80s. Can't tell a difference without MSAA at this resolution. With MSAA at x4 it would be below 60fps quite a bit.

I would keep your current card and see how it performs before making a change. 2gb vram is plenty right now. Future games might start using more. I guess it depends if your someone who keeps their gpu for years. I did get up to 2gb with Crysis 1 with a bunch of mods but gameplay was still fine. Also heavily modded skyrim can hit 2gb.

Hey thank you bro. No i am not that guy who keeps the GPU for years. I would onlu use it 2 years max. Or even better when 7xx series come out I will grab it and sell the 670 I have now. So it does seem that 2GB Vram will be enough for me and no need to change the GPU. Heck maybe I wont need to go SLI as well. It seems that 1440p will require less power than trying to achieve 120fps constant on a 120hz monitor.

Don't get me wrong it is very demanding but these cards are beasts. But like I said if you want really good frame rates you'll need to lower AA in the more demanding games.
