nice. thanks for the pics.

it's most likely using the same pcb as that gtx680 model.

Then you'd still be losing. If a 670 stock and a 670 at max OC can beat a 680 at stock and a 680 at max OC...then it's obvious that the 670 will slap the 7970 around just the same. And the 7970 would cost more than the 670.

Until we see more widespread benchmarks and real-world test cases, hold on to your 680. Nvidia will *have* to explain the situation, or maybe address it with a driver that is more optimal for the 680.

This is what I assume, but it doesn't take much effort to replace the 8-pin with a 6-pin connector. There are four possibilities as far as I'm concerned:
1. It's overkill for the sake of overkill
2. They have more PCBs than GPUs currently available (Meaning the design could change in the future)
3. They feel that the circuitry used will require the additional power (For overclocking)
4. It's actually a GTX 680 model (Conspiracy theory)

I'm starting to lean toward #2 tongue.gif

yea that would make sense. it could be that this particular model is going to require more power and thus can be clocked to the moon (as these two guys seem to be doing).

Looks like Gigabyte just upgrade the GTX670 into a GTX680 to me with the non-ref PCB and power 8+6pin. GTX670 on steroids. What else?

Well, I mentioned it in this thread...(I think, or it might be in another 670 thread...)

But if Gigabyte is indeed using a GTX 680 PCB for their 670s, it would explain the amazing performance.

This is because having an entire SM/192 cores disabled but having the existing power circuitry there would undoubtedly allow a 670 to OC MUCH further than a 680, which may require more power to be stable, or just isn't stable because of that extra SM. I know, it doesn't completely explain why core clock matters so much more than an entire SM cluster, but apparently, it does, and there's really no logical way to completely explain it.

Or, again, it could be driver related, or what have you.

But just like the Mass Effect 3 ending....

LOTS OF SPECULATION FROM EVERYONE! tongue.gif

Can I see a PCB shot of the card, heatsink-side-up, just above the PCIE interface?

Is this what your after?

Please take my tests with a grain of salt as I am by no means an expert when it comes to these things.

Having said that, I do know the difference between stock, a stable 24/7 OC and a max OC.

1350 was definitely a max OC for my setup and any higher would crash before the demo finished. I wouldn't trust it 24/7 and I don't have time to stress test any OC as you can imagine.

But yes, even the stock results are impressive for a card that apparently has fewer techy bits and costs $150 less than a Gigabyte 680 non-OC.

Nvidia released 301.34 drivers aimed towards that card and the 690. If you get some time free and what not, do you think you could run those drivers and see if performance changes. I think Nvidia doesn't realize this cards level right now cuz I can only imagine those drivers are allowing a few more numbers in performance from a 690. Who knows I hope they see it and catch it and the 680 gets boosted as well
