The only thing I see worth it would be if the flash gave you GPU Boost. 2.0. Otherwise seems useless.

If the GTX 770 lightning is a gtx 680 lightning with a different bios I'm going to find a way to get rid of my gtx 680 power edition, buy it and flash my gtx 680 lightning bios. On a nother note, I think I've posted about it here before but I did some more oc'ing on my Power edition and I could only get up to 1260 stable core clock no matter what I tried with all combinations of voltage. Sounds normal for a gtx 680 POwer edition?

so I figured out the issue. I was using the most recent AB. Went back down to 2.2.3 and got proper voltage settings. ONe question though: is it safe to max out memory and aux voltages? or should I not touch them on these cards

heres my Heaven run @ 1320 core/7452 mem



I cant figure out why my AB caps at 1320 core though. I can set it higher, it shows higher in Heaven, but AB graph and OSD always caps at 1320, regardless of what the offset is at. Also... why the hell does my memory OC seem high as -.-

Well, the 780 is officially out. I wonder if and when it will be until a 780 Lightning rears its head. The 680 Lightning came out around 3 months after the 680 launched, if that's any indication.

I thought that NVIDIA confirmed months ago that there would be no non-reference 780s due to the whole voltage controversy months ago.
post #6876 of 7827
There are already non-reference design coolers for the 780, with more to follow, not to mention the 780 allows for overvolting.

That said, no guarantee there will be a 780 Lightning, though I do have my fingers crossed.

Looking at clocks, the 680 lightning is clocked higher than a 780 out of the box. So what would be the advantage of an upgrade? If any. Does the 384 bit memory interface really justify the cost?

In my opinion, it does. 3 gigs of ram and 384 bit memory interface is really good. High end stuff right there. I always hear about it, not sure if all of it is facts, but there are a lot of games that benefit from higher memory bandwidth. I know Crysis and Metro have to be among those games. Traditionally mid range cards have a 256 bit bus and higher end cards have a 384 bit bus.
post #6879 of 7827
680 lightning is hardly midrange with a 256 bit bus.

3 gigs is nice but for those of us on single monitors its overkill. I will concede there are more cores, but I still don't think the ppd is justified over a 680
post #6880 of 7827
Its a lot faster than a GTX680 dude. The difference between a 680 and 780 is much larger than a 680 and a 670 or maybe even 660ti.
