How do you know what ASIC you have in procent callculations?

Thanks in advance.

Right click on the GPU-Z title bar, select Read ASIC Quality.

Thanks for the input fellas, my ASIC is pretty low at 73%. Will flash later to see if 1300 is possible on air. Been a long time since I've flashed, I used to love messing with nibitor and nvflash
post #6404 of 7827
Just checked mine and see it's 71.3%. That bad? I'm on water and running gaming OC core 1346 and mem 3786. Core cant handle more, or atleast i havent tried with AB 2.3.1. I was using older version since my card found its home. Flashed The unlocked 3A BIOS aswell and recently decided to use newer AB and add the lines for V. Turns out i got a higher stable core on my Gaming OC using the new AB.

Can anyone please explain the artmoney hack to me more clearly. I have seen a video posted in this forum but seemed a little complicated? I just dont fully understand.

Thanks!

And you can run this 24/7 without the radiator fan screaming at you? I ask because I'm planning to get a 1440p monitor soon, and figured I'd need another 680L for SLI. But 1.5 ghz on the single Lightning would probably handle it well enough, saving me many euros.

I have had a couple issues with AMD drivers that were fixable, not as terrible as I've heard AMD drivers can be.
Since the 300 series nvidia drivers, I've had a few unfixable driver issues, as bad or worse than anything I have heard about AMD gpu drivers in the past. I've been using nvidia gpus for years so had little experience with AMD before the 7970, but i have never had issues with nvidia drivers before the 300 series.
Not normally with daily stuff, but when pushing the clocks hard the newer drivers seem to self destruct & corrupt at random.

I don't think that would be 24/7, just for benching.

The difference between 1.2ghz and 1.5ghz is no where mere sli speeds. You'll want and need a second one.

My card didn't like 80.04.09.00.F8. Bios screen was garbled, rebooted and flashed back to factory LN2. I think I read somewhere new versions have a different voltage controller or something? Flash was good.

Also, I'm wanting to buy my 2nd from Newegg, out of stock and reported discontinued. I know they do that and it's happned with this card before. Like many I'm now wondering if I should grab the downclocked $459 version. I'm mean hell, this one's at 73%, what's a downgrade? Funny if one scored better on that, measurement.

I have read here a few times that the --09.00.F8 BIOS works only on older cards. Flash with --28.00.3A if you have a newer one; it's linked on the first page of this thread.
