It seems there are 3 so far.
2 are identical except from the starting 3d clocks, one is based on the SC so the 3d clock starts from 928Mhz, the other is based on the plain Titan bios,i guess starting 3d clock is 876Mhz.
I have only tried (and actually using at the time being) the SC version, starting voltage is 1.137V.
The 3rd is supposed to be the "plain" bios but with lower starting voltage, 1.05V according to svl7, havent't tried it myself.
That's the differences between these 3.
For the record, i have spent about 16 hours (2 long sessions) the last two days testing the SC version with my card, running stability tests and i have a ton of graphs that capture it's behavior, being an ex-Fermi user it's like OC my old GTX580 (skipped the 6xx series myself so i never got used to the GPU Boost bahavior/limitations).
No fixed voltage, which is something i need since i don't OC all the time or the same way each time, my OC depends on why i do it and what i want to achieve (for instance no, i don't need to OC at all when running F1 2012 at 1080p with everything maxed up so no need for me to run the card at anything above 1.137V. But Crysis 3, Farcry 3 etc maxed it's another story). I have made and use profiles with different freqs/voltages according to my needs.
Max TDP is 350W (=100%), my personal record while testing these two days was max 96% which translates to 336W (first time i saw readings on the kill-o-watt that reminded me my OCed GTX580), no throttling whatsoever in any case. I am on air and exceeded the infamous 80C threshold, but still, no throttling.
Max voltage is 1.212V, max fan setting 100%.
The only "issue" i see is that the auto-fan is not as agressive as in stock bios (the author knows about this and will take care of it). I guess most of the users don't care about auto-fan because they either make a custom fan curve or run the fan at a fixed speed or they water cool their babies...
Also AB beta 9 cannot set/change/adjust the voltage or so it seems (actually i hope someone else can confirm this), that's a bummer for me since it could store voltage in the profiles. So i use Precision (works fine) but the Precision itself doesn't store the voltage in the profiles (setting th voltage myself manually to the wanted value depending on the profile). Nvidia inspector works fine but the interface is a no-no to me so didn't bothered with it.
That's all i can think of for now...Edited by fommof - 5/12/13 at 1:06am
