My System Specs

I don't know what temps Fermi ran at, but my Galaxy GTX680 GC with non-reference, dual fan heatsink runs at 72-74C, stock clocks.

I have to say, I wasn't 100% sure if trading my 7950 + $$ was worth it for this card. I was having a tiny little bit of buyer's remorse. But, after benchmarking in 3dMark and Unigine, and finally seeing these FAH numbers, I'm completely over any shred of remorse I may have had.

EDIT: Anyone with a 580 pull one of these 8057 beta units? What kind of PPD are you fellas pulling?

Also, all you peeps saying you need to buy a fermi card, don't you mean you need to buy a Kepler card?
Sure, Kepler would be preferrable, but I wouldn't turn down a GTX 460 either (plus, they're cheaper). I almost bought 3 of them that were non-functional with the thought that I could possibly repair them, but it was too much of a shot in the dark since the person selling them couldn't give me any additional information besides "Deffective units, PC wouldn't boot up," which could be anything.

Hmm, I haven't checked. <50% for sure. I can't hear the card over the ambient computer noise. I can let you know this evening.

Actually, I don't think Kepler is preferable at this point for either the old or the new GPU work units. Grandpa was reporting that the GTX 580's are getting around 230K PPD and [H] was saying that the 680's are doing around 160K PPD on the 8057's so it looks like Fermi is still the way to go.

Check out this thread over at OCN:

Bonus points for GPUs

I wouldn't be surprised if old Fermis start being picked up on eBay soon

This is good news for people who want to sell their 580s in order to upgrade to 680 for gaming needs...

It seems like the 560Ti is currently giving the best bang for the buck. For the same price as 2 GTX680s, you could buy 5x GTX560Ti's, and still come out ahead in PPD.

Make sure you set up your GPU slots to flag -beta

And, it's luck of the draw whether you get an 8057 or not. I'm not even sure how long it'll last for me.
