[TT] MSI Geforce GTX 680 Lightning Spotted - Page 7  

post #61 of 900
Locked voltage is the only reason I have AMD cards right now...
post #62 of 900
Idk my 7980 would not even work with over 1.22v just lock ups,it was the better benching card thuo.
really if you want more voltage and cant wait to see what the lightning has in store(no dought very great things) just get a asus dcII oc or top very easy to hard mod even for a beginner.

You do what you want but i'll pass. Only 1 card allows that solder mod (which voids your warranty) and 3slot aftermarket cards suck in SLI, and the DC2 is triple slot. SLI'ing cards that are practically touching each other sounds great, not. You can take your huge 3 slot DC2 and shove it. rolleyes.gif

The issue I have is there isn't even any gurantee you'll be able to go over 1.175 with this. I bought the 670 just to kind of mess around with and it's nice and fast as well but what a dumb decision.

If this/card doesn't offer voltage its going to be another pointless 680 "OC" card. And there's no way in hell I'm going to buy a Classy only to be required to buy the $100 EVbot so it can OC.

I really hope that if GK110 comes to Geforce cards that they won't lock voltage. That would be the worst.

The info from computex indicates that the 680 lightning will go beyond the 1175 mV hard voltage lock. So it will allow you to go higher.

I'm with you, I don't want to buy a classified for 800$ with EV bot. Their pricing just seems insane - I like EVGA as a company but they should stop making 20 different SKUs for every part and LOWER their high end prices. They're pretty ridiculous to be honest. The 680 itself has so many SKUs: Sc, SC+, SC+ with backplate, FTW, Jesus christ why?! Just make a 680 and a 680OC and be done with it.

I'm selling off my 7970 Lightnings right now and I could have gone with 680's if I wanted but I think I'll stick with AMD due to the locked voltage. Not paying that price for the Classifieds and the Lightnings will likely not get blocks like the 580's never did. Hopefully the GHz 7970's will be available soon and I can get a couple of them. Should overclock well considering AMD's yields must be much better nowadays...

Exactly +1.
it's about voiding a warranty. Also, those DC2 cards have had a lot of problems from what I read. It's not a bad solution and much better than some of the others, but why should we have to hardware mod a card when software has done if for the last 3 generations?

Yeah, all those items clock the same. It's still luck of the draw. No more voltage makes all those powerphases useless. The vanilla I have clocks just as high as a FTW, or a Signature. It's marketing Bull now. I don't mind doing a hard mod if I have to, but rather not.

You guys see this?

Power Edition: In caption says you can adjust the voltage as well? It's a 670.
