[Official] MSI GTX 680 Lightning Owners Club - Page 595

post #5941 of 7827
Well guys, this has been one of the most fun threads I've been a part of in a long while. Finding out new things, new limits, seeing all the insane overclocks and scores... was all a blast. Instead of asking who will be upgrading to the 780 Lightning though, my question has been slightly altered due to recent events that I'm sure you're all aware of by now. The new question is - Who will be going with a Titan? Especially all of those of you with crazy overclockers. If Titan is really 50% better than a 680, while at stock on top of it, that means that even with a 1400mhz Lightning, Titan will still be roughly a 35% boost in performance. And that's not taking into account the crazy overclocks that I've seen the Titan hitting (as high as 40% on air...).

So, I fully plan on upgrading. Already sold one of my Lightnings, and will be selling the +1400mhz one soon too (PM me with an offer if you or anyone you know would like an awesome overclocker). So...anyone else here planning on putting their Lightning(s) on the market because of Big Kepler?

I plan on getting a Titan, & may sell off one of the 680 Lightnings. I always have to keep one for the collection though.

I don't know. 50% better could be a marketing exaggeration. I'm with DJRamses; let's see how well the reality matches the marketing copywriters' promises. And even if it's true, it's not 50% more expensive; it's double the cost. I'd sooner get another 680L and run sli. It would perform at least as well, and cost the same. One Titan seems only to be better than two 680s in terms of power consumption, which I admit isn't nothing, but it doesn't motivate me to sell one card to afford another, when I can simply spend another €520 and get something perhaps even better.

With the 680s it was easy to wait for lightnings since the 680 wasn't as good as the 7970 at launch. Titan is looking to be better so will grab a reference early to play with, & see about a good non-reference if they come out. If there is a Titan Lightning, getting one of those then!

If MSI realy made a Lighting of Titan... I buy it !
The Titan have Performance... but the low Clocks....make me thinking. I want to see how high the Titan can OC.
6 VRM´s for a Chip with 2688 Cuda Cores? I let me surprising..

The way the boost is supposed to be tied to temperature more than power interests me, making me wonder just how well the card does when good & chilly.
A non-reference PCB like lightning would be great though, reference 7970 the VRM can just get cooking hot with extra volts & clocks, 7970 Lightning is much better there (never tried a ref. 680 to compare).

It really depends for me. If a highly overclocked TITAN comes within 10-15% of my lightnings at 1389mhz, I will get it and sell the lightings. Also pm me if you would be interested in a pair! I have great heatware! Lol.

But that would be the only time I would sell. It would allow me to go from a huge case to matx with possibility of sli later.

Nop, I never plan to buy things that are not released yet. And blah the reference board. mellowsmiley.gif
Anyway, my last desktop PC was a P4 Prescott , P4P800 SE and ATI Radeon X850XT platinium all Asetek watercooled. (in between my actual desktop pc, I got the Dell laptop I'm using right now, since I'm waiting for watercooling parts to get home). I don't thing I will change anything anythime soon for now, will save few years and see if intel release 8 cores socket 2012 or w/e they are up to. eh-smiley.gif

Interests me as well. But I'm wondering...will someone at a temperature of 15C get the same voltage/clocks as someone at 79C, if the Temp Target is set at 80C? Like I think that all they mean is it won't go down if the temp is within range, but maybe it doesn't exactly go much higher either.

I've heard a couple places say that the BIOS will be locking the cards at up to 1.2v depending on the partner, giving us a measly 38mv of overvoltage at most to play with. I'm hoping this can't be right, as Nvidia actually has the word "Overvoltage" on their site for the first time in a damn long while, and reviewers have been saying that comments from Nvidia were along the lines of "We gave you Titan because many of you enthusiasts wanted to have fun". So, I know someone can just edit the BIOS, but still, depends on what the hardware is locking the voltage at then at that point.

So...who knows. It's overclock on the stock voltage will turn it into an even bigger monster, but actually having more than 38mv to play with would make this beast worth every cent.
