Nvidia bans G80 overclocking

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
EVEN the water-cooled G80 cannot be overclocked. It has to be clocked at Nvidia's reference speeds as Nvidia is already pushing the chip to its limits. There is some overhead but not too much, and the last thing Nvidia needs and wants now is s bunch of fried G80 cards.

It would cause bad publicity and a lot of returns. One of the big problems is that there are not enough chips even for current supply, not to mention how long you would have to wait for RMA on a massive scale.

LOL they deserved it! for using 90nm technology.

man i really was exited to get a 8800gtx. But now everything nvida does with the g80 line is pointless. Ive always loved nvida but the r600 is going murder the competition

Nvidia has banned the selling of pre-overclocked cards by third party manufactures. They have not banned the end user from overclocking their cards. To the contrary, eVGA is still supporting the warranty of their cards even if you overclock. I dont see why everyone is so upset about this, they are just doing what ATI has been doing for years.

eVGA told me companys cant sell the card overclocked.

But the user can overclock the card.

When NVIDIA says the card cant overclock they mean your not going to be able to buy a overclocked card.

oh ha i remember reading about that but how tuanming put it he/she made it sound as if overclocking would not be allowed by Nvida. No more nvida section of overclock.net .

I mean come on, how lame can it get if the first dx10 gfx card is made in 90nm and banned 3rd party company from pre-overclocked G80.

Both my factory overlocked 7800GTX died in less than a year. I dunno but maybe thats why, they lower the lifetime.
