Kepler does better than Tahiti on 3DMark11 but Tahiti generally wins in Heaven....

On a side note, I got a MSI GTX 680 Lightning a few hours ago in the mail after RMAing my MSI 7970 OC. Rkingsmiley.png

What bios did yours come with (non-LN2 and LN2)? I've had terrible luck with flagship cards for this generation. Have RMAd a Sapphire 7970 OC, Gigabyte 7970, Lightning 7970, and a Gigabyte 680 Super Overclock. I have a feeling this one is it biggrin.gif

Haven't tested it yet. Will see what it is later tonight or tomorrow.

Edit: Whoops. They sent me a 7970 Lightning. Odd that they put it in a GTX 680 Lightning packaging. wth.gif

WTH x2 I'd be pissed. You paid $600 for a $500 card questionmark.gif

Don't worry guys. I sent in a 7970 OC. So in hindsight, that was a pretty good deal IMO. The only drawback is that the DVI ports on this card are single-link meaning I can't use it on my CrossOver monitor. madsmiley.png

Single most idiotic thing I've seen on a video card is MSI's choice of connectors on the 7970 Lightning. Makes the card nearly useless honestly, regardless of how great the rest of it is...

Agreed, no Dual Link DVI means i'll never buy one. Makes my VG236H useless :\

I've used the 3A and F8 BIOSes and they have the same vGPU boost in AB 2.2.3 and my over clocks were pretty much identical on both.
