Do you think the 670 is worth the extra cash? As far as benchmarks go, I don't think so.

What about folding?

honestly not quite sure...
but when I bought my 660 Ti, newegg had an 'open box' ASUS GTX 670 triple slot available shortly after for same price..
so in that case I should have but under normal 'retail' situation, not sure..

this is my opinion of course and the 'open box' changes the retail factor..

I don't think so either to be honest.

An extra 80.00 +/- for 64 extra memory lanes isn't really worth it. And as mentioned, the 660 Ti isn't far behind the 670 in the benchmarks. If the price was closer, then maybe.

collateral moral to the story is,,,, an overclocked GTX 580 is still quite beastly...

SO I got a question. Just got a GTX 660TI and performance is nice Im not complaining, but something puzzles me.

The core clock for this card is 980MHz core stock clock and 1059MHz boost clock. So why in game when I am monitoring the clock speed, it is pegged 99% of the time at 1129 MHz sometimes a bit higher sometimes a bit lower but most of the time its well above what they advertised as the boost clock speed?

Did I get a different clocked card then what the package says or whats going on? In most games my temp is 75c and speed is 1129MHz.

The GTX600 series cards boost the clock speeds depending on the demand. The more a GPU has to render, the higher the clocks go up, the less it has to render, the lower it will clock.

Also, at 70C the card will automatically throttle back, and it will throttle back even more at 80C. Get a MSI afterburner and manually set the fan to 60%. It will keep the GPU temp under 70C and will give you a constant high clock speeds.

My card boosts to 1,162Mhz, even though its BIOS is preset to Boost to 1,072Mhz..


More info on Boost.

The frequency and voltage willl be throttled by temperature if the temps go over 70c and will be throttled by power if the power exceeds 100% of the Technical Design Power.

Yeah mine boosts to something like 1230 because (even in SLI) with a custom fan profile to pump the fan speed, they never break 60C in SLI... so amazing. So amazing. thumb.gif

Ok so I set to 65% fan speed. My question is if I leave it on 65 all the time will that ruin fan? I fold 24/7 on it when not gaming it stays around 69c to 71c no. will this constant heat damage it?

Short answer; You wont damage anything.

Long answer; Spend your free time to read and research why it wont damage anything.
