Damn nice card, been using the gpu tweak app with my 6970 dcII for a week or so nice to see Asus finally upgrade to a rivatuner/precision/afterburner app/gui.

"overclocked handpicked GPU core" means?

martin_metal_88 July 26, 2011 03:46 AM

It means that they add to test a whole bunch of GPU before being able to clock few like that. More likely, cherrypicked.

1070 MHz?! I may have to stand next to my mailbox until this gets delivered. :biggrin:

I hope I can manage to get 950 on the core using the Auto fan profile. The airflow in my 600T isn't the greatest.

Getting past the 1GHz mark isn't easy at all on air cooling but using a combination of software + TweakIT makes it possible.

I'll honestly be happy with 925 on the core if I can set it and forget it. 1 GHz + is nice for bench runs though. :)


BTW, awesome job on the review, SKYMTL! Keep up the good work!

Wow what a GPU, OCs like hell. Would love to get one of these and bench sub zero.
