Poll Results: What are you thinking: Used Fermi for SLI, or go with Kepler?

 
  • 18% (20)
    Thinking of getting adding another cheap, used Fermi for SLI!!!
  • 64% (70)
    Thinking of selling my Fermi and going with Single High-End Kepler (670/680)!!!
  • 17% (19)
    Thinking of waiting to see what lower-end/cheaper Keplers bring to the table!!!

Also added Crysis WH benchs to main thread (using AMD compatible settings). Decided to run Ambush, Frost, and Avalanche Flythrough. Ran them all at 1325/1800 ... cut back on core clock to maximize memory bandwidth.
Arni, Youra, Dimmy, Windfire - I'd be stoked if you'd post your results for all those three of those tests so I can post results in the OP. Just the screenshot of the tool would be best, when you post a full screenshot it gets hard to read the numbers. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Wow, this is the first time overclocked 670 pulls ahead of OCed 680. By a tiny bit, but nevertheless. And we are just being butchered by 7970.

GTX 680 @ 1240 / 3375 (I lowered memory a little)

Thanks guys!

Yeah ... 7970 just CRUSHES in Crysis, no doubt. Your avalanche flythrough is AMAZING. I'm guessing that one is just pure mem bandwidth-limited.

Dimmy would you feel like summarizing your OC'd results and making them easy for me to cut/paste into the OP? I got your OC'd ones for the AMD-compatible tests, and for Crysis 2, but I'd be glad to add an addt'l entry for all your OC results in nV test part as well.

Most of my OC'ed results are here. I am missing few benches, I will update that post when I get a chance to run them.

Here's some of my results of my Gigabyte GTX 670 OCd to Core:1340MHZ/Mem:1928MHz.
These are completely stable, I'm told it's possibly the highest memory on any 670 tested so far, and core is pretty high too.

In all seriousness though, it's watercooling and I doubt I could have gotten this high on air.

And that's a very nice overclock pierowheelz

That is absolutely amazing overclock, beats my GTX 680 1327/3466 heaven score. How did you test for stability? Heaven?
post #167 of 209
well i took a big hit going from my OCed 470s to the 670. lost 2000 points (20%) of my 3dmark11 score, took a big hit in other games but i am much cooler, use less power and my minimum frame rates went up so i would say it was a nice sidegrade.

Bummer man. As you can see, I didn't take nearly that big a hit. You must've had really great OC'ing 470's and gotten a really bad OC'ing 670 or something. It is really nice though not having to concern myself with temps or noise, for basically the same gaming performance. Actually it's even a little better cause 50fps on this single card feels just like 60fps ...which wasn't the case with SLI for me.

Also, NICE OC's Pier!

You mind contributing to my Heaven Benching thread? Let's show people what these bad boys can do!

i was able to get 850 core on the 470s but i normally gamed at 825 just because of noise. my 670 is at +171 core which isnt bad its just not as fast as the old setup but having 1 card with stock air cooling in my MATX case instead of the 2 470s with antec 620s on them helps a good bit.
