Hawaii was not all that bad. My 290X can do an easy 15% core (1150 up from 1000). It can probably go higher but it is just not worth the extra heat in my book.

I always hear about these magical 7970s when 280x were lucky to do 1200MHz, which is around +150MHz compared to stock AIB. There sure were some nice clockers but the newer the less they seem to clock over what AMD sets them at reference.
And the heat indeed goes nuts especially with higher volts with AMD.

my 280x can't hit 1200mhz that's for sure. my oc was 1120mhz if I remember correctly

I had mine at 1150/1600 for a long time.

Sweet old 7970 lightning. Just can't find the 1300MHz picture at this moment. This old thread doesn't have the picture though

Benched on air with my 7970 at 1200/1700 just had to turn the AC down and the blower up lol. I ran 1125/1575 on a day to day basis. The 7970 is probably one of my favorite GPUs of all time. Really loved that card. I have a block on it now but haven't put it in a loop to see what i could do. I'm willing to bet i could hit 1200/1700 on water.

Keep in mind that the CPUs being used in the tests are as old as dirt but its pretty telling. Its a shame to see AMD GPUs still struggle on slower CPUs. Even on Doom Vulkan the 480 gets murdered by the 1060 on the older CPUs.

Even some newer cpus will struggle with these gpus. I have not seen many 980s paired with older systems, have you?

Sandys maybe but not even an i3. Nubs will be the ones who will pair these things to older systems simply because they are affordable.

Heck, i would not even recommend pairing these gpus with an A10. lol

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Fond memories .. set myself a world record with those on 12/8/2012 . 7970 lightnings at 1400/1850 CFX. 3D Mark 2011 xtreme. Running about -10c on GPUs.

Lightnings were just sick cards. I can only hope for a vega lightning to come biggrin.gif

I wouldn't call Hawaii a bad clocker. Grenada, sure, since those were already pushed beyond their optimum range at stock, but a very doable 24/7 OC of 1150MHz was +21% over a reference 290. Personally, I'm not too keen on suicide runs with non-plausible tweaks, so I consider 15-20% over stock pretty good.

It's looking more and more like 14/16nm aren't especially great for OC, but at least with 480 there is some variation from chip to chip so you might get lucky. With Pascal, it is what it is no matter what.
