No, but i think most reviewers WERE wrong 4 months ago when they started releasing their preliminary reviews on the 680. Most, if not all, of those reviewers now have a better understanding of how things work now. But, all you need to do is look on this site and you'll quickly realize how it really works. EVERY SINGLE PERSON, is showing the exact same thing with their 670s. Their maximum frequency is ALWAYS their boost clock + their kepler boost. No mater what i change my boost clock to, my maximum core frequency is ALWAYS exactly 104MHz higher (104MHz is my cores Kepler Boost and it never changes). Also, under load i've never seen my card run at the Boost Clock. Not one time. It runs constantly at my Boost clock + Kepler boost. And it's not just my opinion either, every single competent overclocker on this website will agree with me here. This is just how the Kepler GPU's work.

Edit: Anyways, look at the two sreenshots in this post. How can you explain that my GPU runs at a constant 1260MHz with a Boost Clock of 1156MHz then?

I was about to buy the NON-TOP but it went OOS, it was in stock yesterday tongue.gif
Might as well wait for TOP

anyone here getting black screens and hard reset required?

Im pulling my hair out, my PC keeps restarting itself but has no signal to monitor until you turn it off at the wall and reset it. tried different PSU and still did it frown.gif Hope its not my GPU! When it happens my GPU fans get stuck at 100%. Had PC on all day yesterday and it happened 4 times, had it on all day today and its only done it once!!

This happens to me all the time...because I have set my overclock too high. I'm still trying to get my Max oc....its very hard with two cards.

There is no kepler boost. There is only a base clock and a boost clock.

The base clock is the minimum speed at which the GPU will run.

The boost clock is the average speed above the base clock the GPU will run while under load.

The speed over the base clock varies depending on TDP, the speed over the base clock can go beyond the boost clock or below the boost clock. But, what nvidia is guaranteeing is that the AVERAGE speed over the base clock will be the boost clock.

Some background reading regarding boost clock:

No need for extra confusion on the subject and no need to complicate things with unofficial terminology.

300 years ago:
Quick guys, lets go burn all of the maps depicting a round globe rather than a flat earth. Who cares if there's conclusive scientific evidence that proves the world is round, the OFFICIAL government and the general consensus both agree that the world is flat.

I hope you see the fallacy with that line of thought. Just because YOU don't understand something doesn't mean it's not true. To expand on my analogy above, the world was mathematically proven to be round in ~240BC yet it took nearly 2000 years until it was widely accepted to be true. My point is, people are slow to accept knew knowledge that debunks the widely accepted dogma.

While I do tend to agree with you. There does seem to be some made up terms such as "Kepler Boost". Would be nice to have nvidia's real take on it. Not that its a big deal though and I do understand how it works.

Your memory might be unstable but not showing artifacts and that could be lowering your score. It's unlikely though, and i'm sure you've tried that already anyways wink.gif. You're really only about 1-1.5 fps away from where you should be, and there's a lot of things that aren't related to your GPU that could account for that.
You could also try restarting your computer, open up Heaven and let it run a complete circuit, after that then run the actual bench test. Heaven can be wonky at times, i had a test where i got 49FPS at stock settings on my 670, reran it again and got 44 (where it should be). There's also times where i get ~30fps every run and have to restart my computer to break 50FPS again.

I dropped the memory down to +471mhz, but the highest I managed was 48.6 fps. It did seem to run a bit smoother, though. I think I may try it there for awhile. But I'm thinking the issue really lies with my CPU, and now that I've seen the Bitfenix Prodigy, I'm even more motivated to see about building a small form factor ivy bridge machine. My Corsair 650D takes up my entire desk (really glad I didn't get the 800D).

Every single word in existence today was at some point 'made up' to describe something that previously didn't have a word to accurately describe it. It doesn't take an 'official' entity to use a word first before it's an actual real term. In the meantime, until Nvidia decides to coin an 'official' term to describe their dynamic clock feature, we have to use a 'made up' word to describe it.
