Thank you.

My understanding, when your system/GPU allocates memory to a task, and it is not released when the task is finished. This means less and less memory is available as previously allocated mem is not getting freed up. Software can have this problem too like CS4 Photoshop, working on big images, I have to save, close, and restart the app to free up mem every couple of hours.

I am using the latest FM drivers.

Qwwwizx - Did you run these samples on stretched or centered? If stretched then I think I've solved my graphic score dilemma wheee.gif

This is at 1372MHz/1777MHz on stretched mode

Ima lookin, but it's not gonna be successful.. frown.gif


This message was wat i was looking for.
Seems like the new chips from today are real bad!

Chance is the big factor at play here. I received mine this past Friday and it overclocks just fine. It's still a fast card at stock. Ran the game Sleeping Dogs at stock clocks and at 1372MHz/1777MHz and there is about a ~10 fps difference says the in-game benchmark.
post #3226 of 7827
Mine is so new i had to order it! That new is mine,
however i could find the 19 bios here and the card couldnt even reach 1200mhz!!!! lol omg

so i bet 1250mhz is not that bad when i use 3A.
I think 1250 is not that bad after all.... however im the king in the worst lightning worldwide wink.gif
post #3227 of 7827
There's many new ones out there that only hit 1250mhz, yes. That's still good though. I mean, I think we got spoiled by all the early Lightnings where 1300mhz was considered super-low. Like look at the 7970s, even the 7970 Lightning. It's considered an amazing overclock when they get 1250mhz because even the TFIV cooler can't keep it from burning up. And I can run my 680 at 1400mhz and not even break 70C, so, even though it sucks that the new 680 Lightnings aren't as good as they once were, we should still consider ourselves lucky that we have the best card out there smile.gif

yer, thats true.
In that case its worth the 500 euro..

But I tought i was the one with the worst core on the planet. lol.

IN BF3 its faster than my 580 sli was for sure, because of the 0% microstutter.
And when i put my ear in the 680 i dont even hear a damn sound lol.

Still a DAMNNNNN FFS shame nvidia ruins it for us, would nice if we could see cards running at 1,5ghz on air

^Takes a 1358/1702 GTX 670 to match a GTX 680 @ 1293/1602.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/07/23/msi_geforce_gtx_680_lightning_video_card_review/9

^Takes a 1280MHz/1860 7970 to match a GTX 680 @ 1293/1537

Those are heavy overclocks on the 670 and 7970 not to mention rare. I've had 3 7970s and that includes a 7970 Lightning and NONE of them could reach 1280/1860. Highest was 1210/1700 on the Lightning 7970 but my point is; a 680 at 1250-1300MHz is still a monster of a card.

I had a single XFX R7970 Black Edition when they just came out. I cooled it with EK FC7900.

Stock XFX R7970 bios results:
GPU 1,3v; MEM 1,7v; GPU 1.348Mhz; GPU MEM 1.724Mhz.
P11217 http://3dmark.com/3dm11/2811148

With ASUS OC bios results:
GPU 1,4v; MEM 1,75v; GPU 1.407Mhz; GPU MEM 1.743Mhz.
P11582 http://3dmark.com/3dm11/2880724


I benched with default driver settings and 3dmark 11 settings to be able to compare with all my earlier nvidia results. That mean that there is no cheats with tesselation or anything else. Now compare that to my GTX680 and it is obvious that the AMD card is left in the dust :-)

I know that the drivers I used are several generations old, but how much improvements had been done since that?
