    I'll take triple buffering over adaptive vsync any day, as it's not like such cards will be lacking enough VRAM to use a second back buffer.

    Yeah, something in line with around or even more than 100% performance improvement over your HD4890. At presumably lower price than the 7970 too. :wink:

    There is indeed gains with the newer version (including AMD hardware). Thanks

    As we are in Unigine 3.0, and SLI test will drop enough soon, here's 2x 7970 as reference for score ( full quality, 1080P ) ... 2.5 > 3.0 = +10-15fps difference single cards ..

    last driver 12.2, Cat AI in HQ, stock GPU's. all score with 16xAF .

    Normal tesselation:

    Extreme tesselation:

    Yeah, 10-15 FPS increase seems about right for 3.0. If this is the result of better optimizations/development using DX11 then things are looking good for DX11 gaming as a whole. Does anyone know when benchmarks hit the net? I read somewhere near the 22nd.

    haven't looked much at a 120Hz LCD so my experience is based on 120Hz CRT or lower.

    it's way faster so you don't really see the tearing lines, and tearing itself happens less often I believe.
    so if you have a very high refresh rate I find vsync-off double buffering to be the no-brainer setting.

    vsync does bring an impression of perfect movement though, if your framerate is so high it's permanently locked all the way up (such as playing an old game of counterstrike or quake 3)

    vsync at full framerate with tearing below would still be a nice addition in this case. (or good old triple buffering an option, I used that in strategy games where tearing is very ugly)

    I think the rage needs to stop. It's neither on topic, nor particularly warranted by anything that has happened in this thread. Moreover, what if the post that caused it is a nugget hidden in plain sight? And even if it's not, this sort of behaviour is not proper in any particular metric. Now, let's get back to the coming of Kepler, shall we?

    This is a fascinating story and I'd like to read more about it, but I'm guessing that's not likely to happen.
    As is, it's probably not going to dispell many commonly regurgitated myths.

    Hmm, perhaps all that is needed is a website, though? I'm thinking that if you just constantly self-reference wild claims, eventually it will become reiterated truthiness. If only I knew any journalists that would work like this.

    As for Kepler, it's looking like a winner to me, but the Turbo Boost thing seems a little odd. Is this just maximising TDP when not all functional units are in use, like in CPUs? There's no race to idle in GPUs is there, any spare cycles would just generate more frames?

    If nv inspector shows vid right it's impressive for 987mV.. Long way to play around 1175mV and there is still a option to remove voltage cap 1212mV

    Maybe just the higher cooler speed and lower temperature made the card faster. :lol:

    987 appears to be 2d, ~1070mv for 3d @ 1006mhz. Check that hkepc review and look at the EVGA precision screenshot, you can see 987mv @ 326mhz, and slightly higher when 1006mhz. Regardless, it still looks very promising. Precision maxing its gui at 2000mv and 1500mhz :grin::grin::grin::grin:

    You may be right but i find it pretty high for 2d clocks, it was 912mV for 400/800MHz for fermi, of course it's different arch and different process node but im sceptical.. also EVGA tool and nvisnpector conflicts, nvinspecter says card is on P0 state which is 3D state @987mV but evga says otherwise 326MHz@987mV.. it may be stucked at same vid while decreasing the clocks, it would also explain why it draws higher power than 7970 between test sequences.. apparently it's not clear to conclude a result for either way lol :lol:

    so the lowest these down clock to is 300mhz? fermi would drop to 50/100 at idle.
