GTX 600 Series Unlocked Voltage Bios' downloads and tools. - Page 185

Yeah, these cards are plenty fast! A 7970 with 12.8 drivers is insane, and can easily trump our cards clock for clock, but still overclocking them is not really needed per se, nor guaranteed.

CFC means nothing when it comes to GPUs, they are different architectures. And GTX 680 compete pretty well with HD7970. At least it can clock high enough to keep up with it.

My reference GTX 680 does 1228 MHz Core. Still kills in game performance on a single 120 Hz 1080p monitor. Even if I get another 75 MHz and hit 1300 MHz, in games it translates to about 6 FPS in reality.

Also this. Alot of people miss this point unfortunately.
The performance at stock is what determine the price of a card. Overclocking performance was never a guarantee.
I've seen several dud 7970s won't even go above 1150 MHz-1200 MHz and those can be easily trumped even by a good clocking GTX 670, the 680 will just have a more lead against them.
All in all, this generation performance is pretty close and one can't go wrong either way. all of them are great cards.

Yeah I know it means nothing, but latest 7970 cards like the DCUII TOP and Matrix can clock up to 1340mhz on air, and close to 1300mhz for 24/7 use...which is scary tongue.gif

I love my 670 though, and it sips power whilst being a kick ass card though. It was a steal too biggrin.gif
I see it as an ideal card for a gamer, not so much a bencher. It CAN do some benching too, with som tinkering but not as effective or straightforward as a 7970.

Don't be scared LoL tongue.gif . 1340 MHz is the threshold of Tahiti whether on water or air.
Where did you see that? I find that hard to believe unless those cards are watercooled then it is possible.

And that's what matters most .... the gaming performance.

Only scared cause I bench...My card is not too shabby though tongue.gif

Check it out...

You only need to see hwbot to notice that getting globals on a single gpu easily implies getting a 7970...But I enjoy a good challenge! biggrin.gif

Really I was hoping for 7k+ in mem clock and maybe 1300 core with this card..So yeah a bit disappointed in the card I got..
Edit: Darn those coolers are expensive! They cost as much as a friggin RASA kit lol. :| More than my H100 even.

Skip the Accelero. Go the Antec 620 mod route. It's cheaper and better performing. Not to mention, the sweetness of having your own custom kit! Dwood designs and can customize the color match your case. Get your name etched... etc.. Read this thread for details.

thumbsupsmiley.png This.. Or Lap the heat sink and apply Liquid metal pro tim..

I did this with my Galaxy 680 GC 4GB and my temps are the same as i had with my Asus gtx 680 2gb with the Antec 620 mod.

So much truth in that post...I'm getting 45c max while running Heaven with a 1300mhz core on my 670, using Liquid Ultra on the die.
