For starters i am talking about only under full load
. Optimization is the word and it has nothing to do with the actual cost of a card, at least not in my book.
My card boosts at 1058Mhz by default (talking about max boost) and normally runs at 1.15V. I'd be very happy if i would be able to check if i can reduce the voltage a bit (again, under full load) in order to stop throttle because of the tdp limit (106% set in my case).
I am very interested in experimenting with lower freqs and voltage just to see at which values my card will stop exceeding the 106% power limit.
PS: no i don't care about power consumption and i would doubt if a GTX680 could stand side by side say with a Titan at 980Mhz @1.13V (random numbers) while the Titan wouldn't exceed the 106% power limit and therfore it wouldn't lower any further the freq (again, hypothetical situation)Edited by fommof - 4/11/13 at 11:13am
