I guess I always thought it was idiotic when people said that before, with the 79XX cards. Some came stock at 1.25v and others as low as 0.95v.. of course those with high reference voltages flaunted their high OCs and made everyone else think they got bad cards.
I agree... my 290x can do 1100 core on stock volts -- but my stock volt is only 1150 mV
So him doing 1175 or whatever @ 1.22 isn't really impressive at all.
Honestly the difference between an 1100mhz and a 1200-1250 mhz 290/x is how much 5% performance at most? Memory ocing on these does just about nothing.
I can do 1200 with +50mv @ 60hz but when I run my monitor @ 110hz everything screws up over 1100 so i'm not sure what the real issue is since monitor refresh rate SHOULD have nothing to do with my video oc, but it seems it somehow does.
also wondering if there is a bios editor for these yet, or if someone handy with editing bios could possibly help me out and show me how to change clocks etc?Edited by HardwareDecoder - 12/25/13 at 5:49pm
