    Another night at the track and some tuning. Getting a lot of wheel slippage and the engines running too rich...I know I can clock in faster with a higher trap speed in the 1/4...hmmm...in due time... Personal PR. (18660) 3rd Overall (GTX1080 Notebook Class). 1st in 775 Class. +11.3 Points for Team T|i ==================================================================================================================== Personal PR. (7238) 4rd Overall (GTX1080 Notebook Class). 1st in 775 Class. ================================================================= Personal PR. (X10967) 2rd Overall (GTX1080 Notebook Class). 1st in 775 Class. ================================================================= Personal PR. (P21413) Although this was a goofy run as it froze half way through then resumed. Strange...I'll run it again. 3rd Overall (GTX1080 Notebook Class). 1st in 775 Class.

    Time was, with my old 750M dGPU, I’d load a new game, and be pleased as punch that it ran at all. Now I finally built my rig, and I’m getting all worried about performance. Generally speaking, playing with brand new games that are famously not optimized (Deus Ex, Obduction), my 1070 SC/TB2/2014 rMBP seems to do pretty darn well: 50-100+ FPS on “very high” or “ultra” settings. That said, I’m seeing two things occasionally: 1. Definite frame drops with very complex scene renders—perhaps dropping to ~30FPS and then ramping back up with simpler renders 2. Periodic hitching, where the video will freeze right up for maybe 500-1000ms, particularly in Obduction, where level streaming is happening. I guess I’m a *little* disappointed by these drops, but only in the context of the brand new video card on its own. In the context of the rig, I gather neither of these things should be terribly surprising while running a waterfall through the garden hose that is the Akitio/Thunderbolt 2 connection. According to GPU-Z, I’m barely using half my video memory at any time. What do you experienced folks generally see when the Thunderbolt connection bottlenecks? Is it similar to general slowdown in an under-powered system, or are there very particular symptoms? My guess is that the hitching I’m occasionally seeing is particularly indicative of the Thunderbolt stream, but honestly I’m not used to things performing relatively well!

    While the article has no big news otherwise, they state that the release date of the PowerColor Devil Box will be the 20th October. They also state compatibility with the Razer Blade and XPS 13 notebook(s) and the Inter NUC. I wonder why they didn't include benchmark results, maybe an NDA. But they showed many installed cards. http://www.babeltechreviews.com/hands-powercolors-devil-box/ Personally I just dislike the logo on the front.

    Hi, can GTX 980 desktop version voltage be unlocked?

    Use CUDA-Z to measure the Host-to-Device Bandwidth using the following reference. x1 1.1 would be ~190MiB/s, x1 2.0 ~380MiB/s. Reference CUDA-Z Host-to-Device Bandwidth NGFF.M2-32Gbps (x4 3.0): 2842 MiB/s link TB2 -16Gbps (x4 2.0): 1258 MiB/s link TB1-10Gbps: 781MiB/s link TB1-8Gbps (x2 2.0): 697MiB/s link EC2-4Gbps (x1 2.0): 373MiB/s link

    better ask to someone who own(ed) a 980 like MrFox, but if it's like the vbios of my 970m (Prema powered), voltage slider can go up to +212.5mV. My max OC is +370MHz/+300Mhz (core/ram) @+162.5mV.

    The 1060 is probably the best upgrade from a gtx970 IMO. For around 250 bucks for the EVGA SuperClocked version, you get a whole lot of card for a very low price. Also, for those using a projector and still at 1080p resolution, it's a no-brainer! Will run everything maxed out at 60fps! Heaven!

    Gotcha. Will look around. The female port isn't all that much of a big deal, can always rig something up with pins.

    To me bottlenecks appeared only in benchmarks by lower scores and in games with lower fps! The problems you are describing seem to be CPU related. My guess would be that the CPU will down clock in stressful situations and create a performance drop. Make sure your CPU boost is limited to 3GHz, turn off every CPU hungry app, lift the MacBook a bit up to provide optimal cooling and try lowering your CPU voltage with intel xtu (doesn't work on all MacBooks)

    Version 5.236

    16 downloads

    NVFlash 5.236 modified by JoeDirt that bypasses certificate checks allowing for flashing of GTX 950, 960, 970, 980, 980Ti, Titan X. This version of NVFlash is to be used on Windows x86 platform using command prompt window. Instructions: 1. Disable video card(s) in device manager 2. Open command prompt as administrator and change to the directory where nvflash + .rom files reside. If you have multiple GPUs installed in your system, type the following to list them nvflash --list 3. Next, you will need to choose which GPU to flash and then issue the command. nvflash -i0 -6 <name.rom> After you choose 'Y', the utility will flash your GPU. In the example above, the primary GPU was flashed so if you have a second, then follow up with commands such as: nvflash -i1 -6 <name.rom> Once you have completed flashing your GPUs, you must reboot your system and then re-enable the GPUs in device manager. After which you may be required to reinstall your driver in some cases. If you have any questions, direct them in the forums.
