I'm just curious to know how those framerates were achieved if the consumption numbers point towards clock speed limitations due to the card's built-in limiter.

The problem is unless we can see a read out from afterburner of how the clocks/volts fluctuate, it is hard to determine what the actual average over clock was.

For instance in gurus review, it shows that even set to 1175 core/1.2v, he was never hitting it. The ab readout shows it dipping between 1097-~1160 with volt changes between 1.162-1.2

Edit: and you are talking about the 690, my bad. Please ignore unless you don't want to, I mean, maybe you will find some value in my words.

The gap between single GPU and dual GPU has not been this small in a very long time... and that's why it's impressive.
Good know, I wonder if they overclocked it and didn't see that it resulted in less core speed while benching/gaming? I guess i'll have to test it out when mine gets here.

Murlocke come on now your selling "wolf tickets" at this point. Your comparing a highly overclocked Titan to a stock gtx690 that just happens to be the same price. At this point we don't even know what this card will overclock too. What the review achieved could be a serious stretch. For all we know most might not even break 1000mhz which is still a decent overclock from this generation of Nvidia. This entire microstuttering conversation seems to be coming from those who have never owned a 690 except you. Myself and many others who own this card currently have no idea what your talking about. Maybe its the motherboard or cpu I don't know but my 690 runs smooth as silk. The Titan is in no way shape or form equal to the 690. A 690 won't overclock like a 680 but you can get 100-150mhz easy. If the Titan was only 700-750 and then you were saying with a insane overclock it equals a thousand dollar gtx690 then you would have some ground to stand on. But comparing a highly overclocked Titan that cost the same as a 690 in stock form is utterly ridiculous and saying the Titan is superior because it only equals a stock 690 with this overclock is rubbish. I was one of the biggest Titan supporters here from the start. I was ready to buy two at launch. I even had two I could have picked up yesterday. But I'm sorry it fell short from what I expected. With a huge overclock it should destroy a 690 for the price Nvidia is asking. Taking that to equal a 690 is embarrassing.

Yup, you might be right about that 1150MHz might be the limit for this GPU on air, but I think it will hit higher clocks than that with better cooling (water).
The temperature greatly controls how Titan overclocks: You set limits on how high temperature you want on this GPU, and the GPU overclocks itself until it meets that limit. From all the reviews I`ve seen so far where they overclock the GPU, they set it at 90C and they all have hit that limit. So we don`t know if its pulling 265W at that time. In fact, I`m willing to bet money that it doesn`t. Why? Because a Titan without overclock draw 208W. It still have 60W for the overclock, which should result in better clocks than 1150MHz wink.gif

I personally think we should reach 1200-1300MHz on this thing, if cooled by water. But that remains to be seen.

The problem is, you arent reaching a thermal threshold, you are reach a power one. Simply adding water block does not reduce power draw. Lower the operating temp will not reduce power draw significantly (since were only going from 80* to ~40-45*).

I can almost assure you that you will need a new bios to get higher clocks. Water cooling isn't going to cut it. Its not like they are artifacting when pushing over clocks, they just can't get past 265w.

And trust me, this size chip can eat 60 extra watts pretty fast.

I want 2 of these

http://www.evga.com/articles/00729/#TitanHCSignature

and I don't think I'm able to buy from websites based in the states because i live in Australia.


Could somebody help me out here if i transfer the money into their Paypal and then on post the cards to me.

I wasn't going to get the Titan but then when i saw the signature watercooled! WOW

Thanks

Good question. It sounds to me like it was no problem getting it tthere and running at 6500MHz
Quote:
we soon had it running at 1,652MHz
, but wether it was stable, thats a different question. I guess we will see more overclocking reviews later. I know several are working on one smile.gif

Then how are they getting 1600-1800mhzn with LN2?

Corsair AX 850 Watt, is it enough for 2xTitans + 3770k and a couple of harddrives ?

........like I just said, modded bios. And they use epower boards.
