Ours blew out and then the replacements blew out...Thus, this office never actually went with the 295's; we stuck with 280's and later the 285's.
There's definitely info out there on it...It was a big deal for about 2 weeks then forgotten about...This 590 issue, isn't going to be a quick fix, unfortunately.
The issue is...You're not listening.
Even if you bench this card, you won't get real results...Drivers haven't matured enough to get a fair assessment so, why would I waste my time?
Since I'm still at work, here's my GPU-Z of the office PC. I step it up daily to see what I can do under stock voltages until the new drivers come out but, quite frankly, without the new drivers...I haven't even installed vantage at home yet and it won't do anyone, any good because SLI isn't scaling properly.
When working drivers come out, that actually scale, that don't choke the card...that function WELL...I'll be among the first people to give the vast majority the finger...Until then, it's sheathed.
Work PC btw:
It's 24/7 ~ I haven't started tweaking the MC yet b/c I hear that's where people have the most issues but, I have none.
You try overclocking it but dont bench it ?
How do you know if its stable at those clocks ? How you know if it choke's ?
Or do you do it with gaming or so ?
If its just all done in 2D mode then you cant really call it an overclock.
Same as calling a cpu-z screeny a valid overclock.... its not.
I really like to know all inside outs of this card, oneday [prolly soon] a custumor is going to ask about it or wants me to build one in there new computer they buy from me. i want to give them good advice and dont look like a fool.
Now i would tell them to wait it off or get a 6990 [mostly try to talk into them to go with single cards in sli or cf though]
