That just under or right at 1Ghz is it, no more after that, Nvidia essentially locked the card at 265W.....

Uh.....the heck.

EDIT: Misread your post a bit. Sorry

The Titan overclocks just fine to 1150MHz. So much BS thats been spread around by some people in this thread today. Anandtech also reported only 1019MHz. How on earth he managed that while many other got different results I don`t understand.

Just watch Linus clip about overclocking the Titan. He gets his easily at an average of 1105MHz while playing Crysis 3. It goes from 1050MHz to 1150MHz. On air. with a temperature thresshold of 90C. If you watercool it, it will be higher average clocks.

I wasn't talking about what was being said in this board, but on the various reviews. None of them seem to have really OC'ed the dang thing, and kind bashed on it.....

I want to see 1.1Ghz benchmarks!

It's not as fast as I was expecting and in the techpowerup review it's not that impressive in SLI compared to a couple of 7970's.. was expecting a bigger gap.

Overal I'm disappointed and if I were AMD I wouldn't be worried

A very good point. This launch strikes me more as a media stunt.

In future game releases the software will most likely be optimized for AMD, given console chips. Regardless who has the better uArch now, when games are optimized for AMD hardware I see Nvidias lead slipping significantly. This is Greens time to cash in on their lead before it disappears. Just my thoughts.

Buying a halo product NEVER makes sense. Just like buying a Ferrari doesn't make sense when a Lada will also take you from point A to point B and break down just as much. wink.gif

Sure you can take it seriously. AMD is the only one that has major problems in it.

I'm going to take some exception to that statement as well as the graph since you have to take it in context. While the HD 7970 CF looks like it's bleeding like a stuck pig, MOST of its associated frame times are WELL BELOW the 20ms mark, making those fluctuations very, very hard to detect. It may look bad on a chart but I don't think it would translate into a massively unbalanced REAL WORLD gameplay experience.

I'm pretty sure, since Stanford has already white listed the Titian, it will utterly destroy anything from AMD, and when properly OC'd, even the GTX 690.

That's not the fault of AMD. Its that Stanford hasn't made a proper implementation of the AMD gpu core.
How about we turn the tables and compare boinc hcc gpu wu's, where an a10 igp ~= to a 670, and a 7770 destroys anything NVIDIA has to offer. Also, opencl broken in titan driver so those reviews have to wait?
Don't get me wrong, if titan can fold like a beast like it theoretically can great. I'm sure it is capable of a great ppd/$/w for f@h, and for the sake of science I really hope it gets taken advantage of. But don't trash AMD compute because one project can't figure out the massive untapped resources the home compute community has in gcn cards. Look at how high XS daily numbers are, with less then 300 contributing members. I'll put a machine back on f@h after they make AMD gpu compute worth it, for now hcc is where its at.

To some, maybe. To others, they'll take one look at AMDs frame lag and their eyes will immediately begin to bleed.

post #738 of 3575
just read it
nice OC and was surpised how quiet and power efficient it is

25-30% increase over 680/7970 for an extra $650-550 is RIDICULOUS. I am sorry, just because it's Mg-encased doesn't make this suddenly a collector's edition. This price is only justified if it's limited production run of like 1000 like the ARES/MARS....but it's not.

I feel bad for the Nvidia fans that will go out and buy this just to have the fastest single GPU card.

Yup... lol. I'm so glad frame lag is becoming more and more well known.

I'm totally not a fanboy, but i've had really bad luck with my last 2 AMD GPUs in that regard.. noticeable frame lag.

Maxwell? how about IVY-E?

Maxwell will not add much to the table performance wise, but IVY-E could be interesting, atleast if we see a couple more cores.
