NVIDIA GTX 590 Owners Club - Page 75

post #741 of 5154
i wonder if .963 is only achieveable with beta 1? I have msi beta 2 and it's limited to .935 or something around that.

This is a single-card, dual-GPU solution for people like me who want a performance increase past a single GTX 580 but with reduced heat, power consumption, and noise.

The above is exactly the reason why I switched from 2x480s to a single GTX 590. And let me tell you, it was very much worth it.

Would it be awesome if I could OC to the performance levels of 2 stock 580s?

Absolutely.

But I also paid $300 less for my card, and I still get the benefit of 1,024 CUDA cores, etc. I just have to be happy with an overclock on stock volts at about 700 mhz which, for $300 less and coming with less noise, heat and power consumption, i am willing to live with.

Yes, it has failed to compete with the 6990 in the way that people expected it to - but realistically, people were expecting too much from a card that wasn't really supposed to match the power of 2 stand-alone 580s, period.
Sorry to quote this, I've been out of the thread for a few days. But this is really a worth to mention post. OC it with stock voltage and be happy this is A LOT of performance. And I see the worth trade you made from the 480s. Noise is absolutely a no go for me.

Unfortunately no..
nVidia "happened" to lock the core voltage to the minim value from your card's bios. In my case (Asus card) that was 0.913mV which was kinda undervolted...
So in order to achieve this...I "played" with the GPUs bios and increased the minimum voltage to 0.963 ( this is the upper margin the officially specs 0.913-0.963).
Also I do not encourage anyone to this on air cooling ( especially if they don't know what they are doing).

Also, I don't encourage anyone to go above the 0.963 threshold at all. The card is working flawlessly at the mentioned freqs ( 723 Core /2x1850Mhz memory) even with 3D vision ( 3D vision "loads" your card even more) although some games might "bring down" the drivers. Now, until we see a final release of the 270 drivers this is nothing to worry.

Also, going further than these frequencies will make your card throttle as the "power saver" kicks in.

Best regards

Nice, so at least in your case you were able to increase it a little by editing the BIOS.

I think the Bios for that POV card that comes clocked at 690Mhz might have a tiny voltage bump.

Only 1 way to find out: GPU-Z can tell you or MSI Afterburner. They both read the currently "software" value.

How about flashing the cards to the Original Asus GTX 590 Bios and using the Asus Voltage Tweak Utility?

Or do the drivers still prevent the voltage from being touched at all?
Maybe change the VBIOS , I think able to up the voltage.

but ,I don't like my card change bios now. I wait for the nvidia driver update.

I wouldn't touch any of the BIOS, if, not saying it will, if the card does fry all warranties are voided when they check the BIOS out.

That last I heard, driver 267.84/85 do not have locked down Voltages, yet still have the recommended newer OCP. The voltage lockdown was introduced with driver set 267.91/270.51. Therefore a non warranty voiding way to overclock just revert to those drivers if you want to up the voltage.

I think it would would be down right moronic to edit BIOS at this point, even on water. Especially with the other drivers as an option.

I understand driver 267.84/85 do not have locked Voltages.

but , 267.91/270.51. I think latest good driver !

I hope early updates can boost voltage driver.
