Sigh... Now we are headed into Gsync?

And who is a red head? lol

Where does it stop? Not sure. There are people running Classy Ti underwater with the Classified tool and still getting boost after 1300 mhz.

The boost clock is an offset which is added on top of the core clock, you'll still get boost even at 2GHz if you overclock.

How does the card which voltage to use at what clock, it just cannot guess that or do it automatically otherwise it'll crash if the voltage was too low, all these things are in the vBIOS, Kepler BIOS Tweaker can read the maximum boost clock on 6xx series cards (GPU Boost 1.0), unfortunately it can't read 7xx cards yet. On my old GTX670 Windforce it showed that the card maximum boost is 1267MHz and in games it was boosting to that clock and staying there.

Mantle does indeed make a huge difference as shown in the OP. However, that only happens on huge servers when the CPU is the bottleneck.

Honestly... what are you upset about?

You don't have to want it to be a good thing. It has already been proven to be great.,

There hasn't been one review that says otherwise.

The test methodology is clear, yes. It's clearly wrong.

As I said before, I could have a test procedure where I test one card, then remove electrical power while I test the other card. It's a very clear test procedure, but a clearly wrong one. Clarity does not make it valid, it only makes it easy to determine validity. And in this case it is very easy to find major, major errors in their process.

You are making so much sense right now lol.

For over a decade I've seen most every company in the tech sector leave out important benchmark statistics in their bought reviews. When I see this, it helps me understand that this is something I should not buy.

Good thing Mantle is free.

mantle is free, but the video card that you need to run it isnt. so someone looking to purchase a new card and using its features as a deciding factor could easily be turned away by such things.

Wait change Mantle to Gsync and ask yourself why you fought so hard against the same argument.
