My new gts 512 g92 will be here on the 3rd. People are getting insane oc's on them. One guy got about 17,4xx in 3d '06, but he also had a quad core cpu oc'ed to almost 4ghz. I know it's just a benchmark and it's synthetic, but I've been reading every review of these cards i can find, and it has it beating the gtx on many tests, as it is great for single monitors with a native rez of 12/10.
I posted the link to orb here for people to see, but for some reason quite a few peoples links are busted. I have an account there and even logged in can't see some of them. People are clocking the core just over 800, over 2200mem, over 1900 shader speed. but they are doing it carefully.
Anybody reading this that doesn't have practical experience, should either really take your time doing this, remembering that some cards are just better than others, and some can't achieve these speeds w/o artifacting, or lock-ups, or crashing. Individual cards are different, and here's to hoping we get good ones Thraxz!
800 and 2200 mem? Damn. Frikken GT can't get over 2016 mem and 799 core. That is with the voltage upped to 1.1v in BIOS. But I did get my shader clock to 1998Mhz. w00t. My eVGA step up will be good until Feb, so we will see if the new cards come out in time. otherwise a GTS might be in my future.
and yeah. 128 shaders > 112 shaders
