I left my ram at 2400mhz beucase it can get temporarily tia when I go playing with my memory settings.

running 3dmark in a sec.

My 3dmark graphics score was 6738, I didn't run the physics tests as they would come out pretty much identical.

Offtopic, What wallpaper do you have? From what i can tell it looks awesome

Cropped in shot of the eagle nebula I found with my googlefoo. Sure is pretty especially on this new QX2710.

Well, I dont know. But my 7950 can take what it want. Running on 1350 on air. 11K 3D Mark 11 ++ with 3570K. wink.gif

Heres what an overclocked Asus GTX 680 CU II 4 GB card can do in 2560x1440

7970 GHZ exchanges blows with GTX680 but you have to use a whole set of benchmarks to get the average as you cannot win every battle ;-).

7950 @ 1100/1500MHZ = 7970 GHZ

Does the 7950 use different ram chips than a 7970 (in other words should the ram be able to hit the same speed as a stock 7970) or does it vary by specific model. I have this one if it matters http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125414

Depends on the model.
My 7950 Vapor-X uses the same (Hynix) chips as 7970 Vapor-X and can do this on air:

Newer versions of this same card use slower chips from Elpida which rarely overclock above 1400-1500MHz.

found a review of my card and it looks like it uses Hynix chips, ill double check when i get home but those are the good ones then right?


"The memory used on the GIGABYTE HD7950 are the same HYNIX modules we have seen on all previous HD7950 reviews, the very overclocking friendly H5GQ2H24MFA T2C modules."

although i just looked and theirs is an older revision, mine has a 6+8 pin power connector theirs is dual 6 pin

Cool story, Lars...
Anyway, if I've missed the thread where this was discussed please point me to it but I'd really like to see how the 680 and the 7850 compare clock-for-clock at realistic average OC levels, e.g. both cards at 1200/1600; curious to see what the RL performance gap would be between the 7950's 1792 shaders vs. the 680's 1536 CUDA cores...

eh? Why you compare different architectures?
