This week was never confirmed, thats not true. Its coming, not sure when. In the meantime, the cards are beast overclockers as is thumb.gif

Anywayyy, these lightnings are awesome, I like them better than any gpu purchase i've had in years thumb.gif Also my highest 3dmark11 (P) score is around 24k for the graphics (not the combined score), so far its crushing all the results i've seen for SLI everywhere else wink.gif

Yeah, the 680's are beastly in 3dmark11. I'm hoping to see some good gains with 12.7 when I get my custom loop finished. Should be able to push a good bit higher than my 7970 Lightning's 20,300 GPU score...

Maybe the voltage will help.

But yeah OC'ing isn't anywhere close to guarenteed, like he said. You're guarenteed stock clocks and not a thing more.

when those three cards are in the LN2 bios 2 STILL do not hit 1300!!!! are at about 1295 ish and one goes to 1312 (though I only did 10 - 15 min at that speed and it crashes almost instantly at 1320 ...
I am not sure what I will do ... I might just return three and get hit with restocking (on top of 2 orders of next day shipping) and try another 2 or 3 out ... or what sound defeat and keep one good one and one so so one?!?
Yeah yeah Alex say what you want about Binning vs cherry picking but 3 of the 4 cards I have touched are VERY NORMAL overclockers and not very lightninglike!

Or, you know, you can just wait until you can adjust voltage to determine how binned they are compared to every other 680?

Just VERY dissapointed!!!

Are you testing the cards individually? Clock speeds usually drop a bit with sli from what I understand.

That was the nice thing about the Asus TOP 680, you were guaranteed some pretty awesome clocks. Just lacked voltage adjustment.

Was there any more info on the max voltage that 2.2.3 is going to allow?

Whats funny is that 680 cards have about 300-400$ profit margin built in for AIB makers, you know why? Because of idiots who do fraudulent and/or stupid RMAs, and for warranty. Those costs have gone up each generation because there are more and more idiots RMA'ing for stupid stuff, they are destroying the industry and raising costs. Newegg is at this time in discussions of removing all VGA returns and instituting restock fees of 20% or greater for all GPUs. Guess what the reason is?

Further, overclocks in SLI/ crossfire aren't what you get in single card mode. You can push 1 card harder than you can push 2-4 cards, i'd assume you would know this. Only someone completely new to the PC game would expect the same overclocks in SLI compared to single card.....
