No, Kyle and his team (I dunno who actually wrote the review) just don't know what they're talking about (again).

as far as I'm aware - no.
Still useless DICE in that respect - nothing to do with Nvidia or AMD.

test was done on a GTX780Ti old drivers temp where 83C, with new drivers it went up to 87C

This is false.

You do realize they perma-banned me after having an account there for 4 years because I took issue in their forums about them using a stock overclocked GTX 580 in their 7970 review and then making vague statements like "7970 was only x% faster than our GTX 580", right?

The only bias Kyle and Brent have are towards whoever will give them the biggest check and the most free stuff. Sometimes it's Nvidia, sometimes Intel, sometimes AMD.

I trust their reviews the least. I realize they're one of the few sites that tests for playable settings, but they are corrupt as can be and using a vague statement like "playable" and "smooth" gives them a ton of room to tweak their conclusions how they see fit (or how whoever is paying them wants them to).

[H] is legit bad news. I was literally quoting their article where it said things like "7970 is only x% faster than our GTX 580" and calling them out, saying they should be calling it an overclocked GTX 580, and mentioning that in all the graphs and tables for the review, there was no mention of what kind of GTX 580 it was. They deleted my posts and perma banned me after being an active member for years.

The bottom line is that I don't trust [H] at all. The way they handled the 7970 launch was completely immature. I wasn't the only one calling them out, either. But everyone who did had their posts deleted and they were banned from the forums forever.

They really shouldn't be trusted at all to be fair and balanced.

LOL.... what makes you believe its false? i already stated early on this thread... this drivers just make your CPU usage higher and GPU usage higher... just read the thread...
post #1027 of 1057
tried it out, was having random driver crashes in firefox :/ had to revert back to 335.23

it was weird the screen would black out then id loose windows aero. then i can hear the gfx cards randomly heat up (had everest running) and the fans get louder and louder.. had to restart pc, then all was fine again for a little bit then happened again.

keep in mind i did a complete fresh install and followed this sticky post on removing old drivers before updating driver.

I've also noticed my 750Ti going a bit over 60°C instead of staying well under that.

getting more use = more heat. Running @ a higher GPU usage % due to driver tuning = more heat. Iv'e not noticed any change on my Titans though.
