My 7950s at only 1053 core, 1575 memory would need at nearly +50% to never throttle (TDP is 200-225w, and I've measured ~300w power consumption through the PCI-E power connectors alone with a digital ammeter loop, as well as software), so I mod my drivers and use MSI AB to disable PowerTune all together.
They throttle in almost everything 3D at only +20%, on all four of my 7950s (none of which are using excessive voltage to reach the modest clocks I'm using).Edited by Blameless - 10/25/13 at 10:33pm
