post #3782 of 19539
OK so a noob question...What's the difference between CPU VCORE and VID voltages? When I'm gaming on my new system, the max CPU VCORE reads 1.296V and VID reads 1.375V. Is this normal and are these the same thing? Ideally, I want to keep my voltages below 1.3V.

Also all my other power and energy settings are set to auto and I've noticed in AI Suites that LLC is automatically set to Level 8 (highest) for my given overclock. Is this OK for the long run? I think I saw an Asus overclocking video guide on Youtube saying that with the Haswell platform we can just leave all those settings on auto and the mobo will take care of it.

My system specs:
-i7-4770K OC @ 4.5 GHz (1.275 Vcore Adaptive); Uncore @ 4.4 GHz (1.25V Adaptive)
-Asus Maximus VI Formula mobo
-Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB OC to 2400 MHz (10-12-12-31-2)
-EVGA GTX 780 SC ACX
-Corsair AX860i psu

Only one game, and that's Company of Heroes. Unless you are gaming at 1440P, you are going to want to look at different benchmarks. It's not surprising that all the 280Xs blow away the 770 because the 770 only has 2GB of VRAM (Some have 4GB) and a higher memory bandwidth.
I've always found it interesting how optimizations can make a weaker card look a lot better. (Not saying it is a weak card, just not as good as a 780.)
I really wish they would state what they mean when they just say "GTX 780." Does that mean at stock frequencies? Does it include GPU Boost 2.0? I think they are trying to make the 280X look really good, but they really need to state all of their material.

That Toxic also has very little to no core overclocking ability. =/ What's the fun in that? At leas the memory core can be upped a little.

Really nice card though. Depending on its price, I might pick one up for my wife's build.

Here is another review that shows that it is the most powerful 280x and is more powerful than a GTX 770 :

280 = 7970ghz, done deal. 7970ghz will NOT defeat 780 in large majority of games.

It's already listed in the guide.

VID is the number you entered into BIOS.

CPU Vcore is the Vcore measured under load by HWinfo.

Such a voltage change is normal.

*280X The 280 is basically the 7950 if I remember correctly. thumb.gif

No, it's a 7970 (look at the number of shaders, for example). The clock speeds are slightly different, but functionally a 7970.

So, the 280X is a 7970Ghz edition and the 280 is a regular 7970?

Pretty sure it's 280X = 7970 and 280 = 7950. I haven't really paid any attention to the 280 though, but you should be able to tell from the specs.

But, but... That's what I said... XD
