But...1 to 2 fps? Yeah, not so sure about that. The one on the right, is with the stock bios and at 1518 on the core. The one on the right is with a custom bios and at 1620 on the core. They still scale pretty good above 1500..... I'll take 10 extra fps any day.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Have you missed the various threads of this forum that are all about people underclocking their cards
? The Strix is by no means ever going to be a top
overclocking card, which is BLATANTLY apparent by the presence of a single 8-pin power connector - this is something that any serious overclocker would have already considered. We all can agree that if you want to have more power to play with, you need to have the ability to deliver that power to the card.So like I said, bashing the card for not doing something it wasn't even really built to do, is pointless. It's like being upset that the brand new Ford Focus isn't breaking land-speed records straight off the lot.
In terms of the amount of power that can
be potentially be delivered:
Just PCI-E slot power (lowest amount) < 1x 6-pin < 1x 8-pin < 2x 6-pin < 2x 8-pin (highest amount)
Please don't take this the wrong way, but I'll probably have an easier time believing what you're saying when the screenshots show the correct information. I'm seeing the difference in the scores, but there's no part that shows the frequencies that you're saying the benches were run at. So for the sake of this discussion right here, that screenshot is fairly irrelevant.
