Are AMD so stupid as to not overclock them themselves if they are so durable? This is an obvious case of either an unstable situation or cards just dying sooner.
Well I've had my 3 7970s @ 1.3v+ for 1 year 4 months and it hasn't even degraded my top clocks stability at all. And yes, of course I take responsibility as does every person who overclocks. Its pretty straight forward, if you don't know what you are doing, don't do it. You are on a forum about overclocking if you hadn't noticed.
....and they do overclock themselves, its called a GHz edition. Highest come in @ 1150-1225 auto boost (so to speak). Which would beat that there 770 @ 1200-1300 (which was already basically matching a 1160 core 7970).
Why would you gave credit to a card that is literally an exact copy of a year and 4 month old card with a 10% clock/performance boost? What the 770 can do is not only achieved and beat by the 7970 (a year and 7 months old) that is also cheaper, but its identical twin, the 680, as well.
You are the only one taking this personaly. No one would be upset if you weren't constantly spreading misinformation. If it was just your opinion, then why throw in definitive statements without both knowing what you are talking about and providing proof to back up them up.Edited by jomama22 - 7/8/13 at 11:03pm
