why everyone has weird power target issues ?? I have no issue at all at that.. for example, I can play crysis 3 at max power target 150% and it even goes up to 157% !!!

Just try your OC settings in crysis 3 open beta and you wil lse your GPU and PC melting really cevat yerli said it and I lol ed biggrin.gif

by the way my settings are 1260/6600 .. 6700 crashes my core oc on crysis 3 open beta.. SO SO much demanding game !


edit: if you dont see max power target again on crysis 3 so the only answer is that your card doesnt need much power for your OC settings.. try increasing your OC then smile.gif but I warned you for crysis 3 biggrin.gif..

My card barely touches 90% power usage.

What it uses doesn't matter as long as it's below the configured max so that it isn't be throttled.

As long as temps are below 70 degrees and the power usage is below the max set, you will be getting maximum performance.

Even when I overvolted my card (and it definitely did overvolt as I was using afterburner 2.2.3 and my card is running one of the two original BIOS that allow overvolting) my Power usage only went into the high 90's. With a better overclock it would have been in the low hundreds, but still well below 114%.

My card throttles at 102% with custom 60c no matter what power max setting. If it stays under 60c it doesn't throttle at 102%. These cards are so weird. Also if I don't use custom fan profile my card boost up an extra 13mhz over max boost. With custom profile on it stays at the clock speed I set.

Great job! +Rep. The GTX 670 is my first Nvidia card since owning a GeForce2 MX a long time ago... thanks for getting me on the right track to over clock nirvana!

^ nice...my 670 is also my first green card in 9 years since the GeForce 2 MX

If I had to buy again now I would still have gone AMD though now that they are so much bang for much...ala Tahiti LE

BTW I never had throttle issues before or after overvolting
I've seen TDP hit 135% and temps in the low 70's

pay attention to what cards are having 'strange power target issues'. its gigabyte windforce cards. as stated earlier, i dont get over 80% target 99% of the time. and my oc tops out at 1228mhz on the core. i have it 1241 a few times but i cant figure out how to get and keep it there.

twitchy,

I would have also gone AMD again, but I need the CUDA cores for Adobe Premiere Pro / After Effects rendering. Unfortunately, non-green cards are slower than molasses for most preview/rendering of effects in videos mad.gif

What do you mean?

Lowering the core to stock results in 420mhz on the memory. 500 is about average, and not that much more than my 400, the additional 50mhz makes up for it wink.gif

Those power target readings are wrong smile.gif Your card is physically limited to about 140%. Software readouts can never be 100% accurate.

@iRandomize: no not wrong.. I have modded my BIOS to General123.. and its now taking 225 Watts instead of 172 watts at full load. .and 225 watts = 160% POWER target smile.gif
