What's this ln2 I'm seeing in previous posts?

Oh good I almost had a heart attack.

I wonder if that 1.4ghz is stable for gaming.

I am sorry unless someone here gets a retail sample & proves it otherwise.
That is simply not true.

This has to be a mistake, It would make no sense to voltage lock the lightning at such low voltages. this ruins the whole point of this card. i hope someone people start getting theirs soon so we can see if this is true.

Trying to get you guys at least +200mV on AB asap.

edit: unlocked voltages = for extreme overclockers, if you can handle ln2 properly and you know that you void warranty, you can get ABX.

question: why don't you give everyone unlimited voltage:
Answer: because too many people that don't know what to do blow up their GPUs. That and the fact that every 25mV adds about 5 degrees Celcius to the GPU.

Knew this BS.

Not the right thread, I know, but no other 'fresh' one.

Is AMD outselling nVidia now with all the mining going on?

Nope
