[VC] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Modified Into GeForce GTX 770 - Page 5

post #41 of 164
I am glad that my 680's are now 770's!

I do not need to flash the bios to prove the point! They are still superb cards! thumb.gif

I was'nt that far off when I mentioned that Nvidia will create performance based sku differentiation by leveraging the software, instead of hardware in this thread

Nvidia will gain economies of scale from similar production setup, while leveraging the software to create differentiation points, both within and without. That's what I would do I were Nvidia. However, as an overclocker, and an enthusiast, it is disconcerting to see the gpu manufacturers headed in the direction of "dumbed down" overclocking on these cards, apparently for "our benefit, yet charging a premium at the same time.

You gotta think like a business, if you want to anticipate the next move,,.lol

Makes sense.

 

Just because you can flash a 770 BIOS to a 680 doesn't mean the clock speeds are the only difference.  The 770 is rumored to have 6+8 power, for example, which should give you more power overhead for (hopefully) higher voltages.  If I'm not mistaken, the GE is exactly the same as the non-GE except for clock speeds.  Still a cheap trick though.

 

Can one of you guys that flashed already comment on the voltage?

No go on GPU.

Will remove the SLI link and retry on two cards.

Btw won't burn out the cards... just reflashed it back to it's 680 bios.

That was exactly my point. Nvidia is doing more than just a simple bios flash yet the AMD defense team would have you believe otherwise.

For one, they weren't being released as a completely new generation of cards with a new name that couldn't be paired with the last gen of cards in SLI/Crossfire. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of AMD releasing the GHz Edition and Boost and charging more for them without guaranteeing a higher binned GPU, but at least they still play nice with the non-GHz Edition/non-Boost cards and they are sold as part of the same generation.
