And 760ti.... Well, I didn't find 192 bit interface an issue. Hynix clocks nice, bandwidth is enough for 1080p with 4x or even 8x msaa. I bought my card 4 months ago and I'm kind of attached to it
looks beautiful and performs great. Kepler generation is enough to keep us satisfied until ps 4 and new Xbox release when everything can change in the matter of gaming GPUs... I switched 560ti to 660ti because in many games I got even 50% performance boost. I don't think on 7xx it will be that noticeable. The only really cool feature is boost 2.0 but hey... Every generation has some extras.
Yes , I was surprised at the temps , though I honestly don't know what memory temps should be for vid . system memory runs much cooler .
To bad I can't easy measure the main memory chips with heat-spreader to see how cool they run.
Edit : for kicks I tried to measure the heatspreader close to were it covers memory and also measure back of card right were memory is underneath .
With GPU stabilized at 56c (nice temps
) the heat-spreader got to around 103F(40c ) (I could not get right over memory cause of cooler ) . the back side of card right over memory chips that are cooled by heatspread ran about 113-115F (45-46c) .
So these did run cooler by around 10c roughly .Edited by Edkiefer - 6/6/13 at 6:07am
