I hear what you are saying but i dont think this is the case from what i have seen on the web. The guru review shows the stock setting as being 876mhz and overclocked setting as 1176mhz. Also the user reviews seem to back up the 10% return for a similar overclock with clocks of around 1000mhz to 1170-1200mhz showing less of an increase in frames.It's the boost thing that confuses things a bit here, Anand's titan was boosting to just under 1GHz during their benchmarking. So a 35% oc from 837Mhz gives you 1130Mhz but if you were already boosting to nearly 1000Mhz, you're really only getting ~130Mhz which lines up well with the 10% boost you're seeing. Thats how I think it works anyways:biggrin:
A gtx 680 seems to give a larger return as a percentage and 10% overclock gives approx 5% return in frames.
I'm not really sure how else to word this.. Yes, you can overclock the card, but that overclock will not hold. What started out as a 35% OC ends up being far less, exactly how much less varries.
I can see this being an issue with regards to gaming for long periods of time but surely a few minute benchmark shouldn't scale back the clocks if the temps are kept low enough.
I just find the overclocking results in terms of frames to be allot lower than I expected from this chip.
