313. drivers. Woo hoo! - http://www.overclock.net/t/1354420/guru3d-nvidia-313-95-beta-driver#post_19155373
Oh you can surpass a 690 with 670's if you get good clockers...
Yeah I figured since the Heaven thread is dominated by 7970's. That's OK, when I get my 680L's it'll be my goal to see what kind of Heaven score I can get on full water...
I agree cryptic. Well, so far anyways. No more problem with the clocks sitting at the full non-boost speed of 1110mhz when idle
Also, switching in and out of SLI has been quick and smooth, unlike 310.90 when it would lock up sometimes or sit at a black screen for 20 seconds.
Just ran Heaven, seems it stays at a constant 99% load now, unlike the last time I ran it (which was a while ago I'll admit, and also on Win7) where usage would spike up and down real quickly in a few spots.
Anyways, here's what I did so far. Want to play some games now though so I'm going to take a break. Just was testing with the good card, SLI would take a bit longer and I want to try a game or two 1424mhz/7100mhz, CoreV- +131, MemV- +50. Max temp- 64C
Going up to the next core clock increment, 1437mhz, might get me that last 3/10's of a frame to break 60fps, but I'm going to take a benching break.
