Lightning is Lightning, the PE GPUs doesn't have the "dual BIOS" for LN2 and normal conditions...

 

Thats partially incorrect. Power Edition GPU's do infact have Dual BIOS.. just not LN BIOS [which software patches OCP to 1000A]

I am editing the Moa Bios.Thats not so easy. The Hexdata are very diffrent to the 3A or F8. If you wanna start the moa bios, without Vmod, you get a RSoD, if the nvidia driver loads.

Man am I familiar with the RSOD, trying to find max overclock, just a little to much voltage and all I see is RED, I have learned a lot this time around

Anyone know how this card does on Far Cry 3 on a 2560x1440 monitor? Trying to decide between swapping out my 7970 lightning for one of these.

You already have a 7970 lightning why would you want to swap to a 680 gtx? Both are fairly similar cards, 7970 has a more vram for that 1440p res. Seems pointless to switch to the other...

The 7970 L does not have a duel link DVI connector so the max res it can do is 1200p.

The 7970L would need a mini displayport to dual link adapter for 2560 x 1440, I'd get one & stick with the 7970.

I have the converter so I can run mini dp to dvi for full res.

I just didn't know if the 680 was better or not, that's why I asked.

Thanks for the info all

What do you run as your gaming OC? If you got a poor 7970, and want to take a stab at getting a good 680 Lightning, you'd be in great shape if you did, as it takes a lot of voltage to warm these guys up.

And as for Far Cry 3, it seems like a large portion of the problems people report having in the FC3 performance thread are posted by AMD users. Many also say, even if not having major problems, that it's quite choppy most of the time. Even though it's a Gaming Evolved title, Nvidia cards seem to be doing much better at the moment, but that's not to say that it won't be fixed by a future driver. Just saying at the moment that it seems to be running way better on Kepler.

But, I don't think it'd be worth getting a 680 just to see a slight improvement in one game. So unless you can get a great price for your 7970 and find a cheap 680L on sale on Newegg, or you really want the best Far Cry 3 experience, I'd stick with the 7970. Can't go too wrong either way though thumb.gif
