So a 7970 benches 8% higher speeds than what it can do 24/7 but The titan benches at 20% higher speeds than it can run 24/7? How does that make sense? There's also less variation between Titans than 7970s.
I'm not sure if you've read what I've posted but Titans 2 weeks back =/= Titans now. They just got a voltage boost.
I'm not saying that you can. But that goes for both brands. NV does not somehow lose much more than AMD going from max air/water bench speeds to 24/7 speeds.
Again the fastest non LN2 Titan in the valley thread is at 1330MHz and is around 49% faster than the fastest non LN2 7970 at 1375MHz.
Yes, one of 8pack's LN2 runs....
You have turned around and gone back to talking about benching, you can't use bench clocks for 24/7 use, ergo: its irrelevan
t unless you like to watch the lightshow that is artifacting instead of the game and don't need the card to last more than 2 weeks.
Link me to this valley thread.
PS: the GTX Titan didn't get a voltage boost as such, IE: there is nothing different about it, its just got the volts it was always capable of unlocked because the Haweii GPU's are on the way.
Don't you remember Nvidia ordering EVGA to remove EV-Bot from Kepler and then locked the lower volts into all GTX 600 series GPU's?
The higher volts in the GTX 700 are not 'new found volts' they are the volts the GTX 600 always had,- taken from you and then given back packaged up as a 'new GPU' the GTX 700
The GTX Titan higher volts is just the same thing, existing volts held back and given at a later date so Nvidia can say "we are giving you new stuff" whats more the higher volts are useless as its going to run just as warm on a given cooler at the same clocks, so your not gaining anything in reality, just more for benching.Edited by Abundant Cores - 8/26/13 at 12:20am
