    Run firestrike when you can Daz and i will put your score on the front page just like Rflairs.

    Firestrike or Firestrike Extreme?

    *EDIT*
    Ran them both, though the Extreme test seems to crash the benchmark at right the end when it is supposed to give the results and open the brower on the Futuremark page (SystemInfo.GetUTF8XML() null or something). The non-Extreme test was fine. Still clicking on Ignore error gave me the numbers at the end. Not quite sure why it crashes there as I have the updated SystemInfo v4.30 installed. :3eyes:

    Anyway, here are the results:

    3DMark (2013) - Fire Strike

    GTX 780 (v344.11) - 7,995...GS: 9,002, PS: 9,850, CS: 3,772 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/2786139
    GTX 980 (v344.16) - 11,150...GS: 13,549, PS: 10,173, CS: 5,106 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/2789983

    3DMark (2013) - Fire Strike Extreme

    GTX 780 (v344.11) - 3,985...GS: 4,080, PS: 9,659, CS: 1,959 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/2786242
    GTX 980 (v344.16) - 5,716...GS: 6,062, PS: 10,136, CS: 2,747 http://www.3dmark.com/fs/2790031

    Fire Strike results are above.

    Unigine Valley 1.0 - Extreme HD

    GTX 780 - Score: 2,112, Ave: 50.5 fps
    GTX 980 - Score: 2,631, Ave: 62.9 (Min: 13.6, Max: 126.7) fps


    This benchmark actually caused the drivers to stop responding which isn't encouraging, as this is a pre-overclocked card that I was running at stock and without any additional overclocking at all. Two minutes after that, while attempting to run Valley again, I got my first blue screen of death crash in 14 months: KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE. Eeek. Not good, not good... :(

    I had installed the v344.16 beta drivers though...I wonder if those were rushed out without proper testing. I was actually asked to approve these drivers when I installed, something that I don't recall ever having to do for any other beta.

    No wonder Watch_Dogs was such a stutter fest on maxed out 1920x1200 settings on my GTX 780...with Temporal SMAA it was using 3,200 MB (in other words 200 MB more than the GTX 780 has!) and with TXAAx4 it uses 3,700-3,800 MB, though I never saw it go above that, thankfully (otherwise I'd be regretting not having waited for a 6 or 8 GB card). Still stutters a bit, though nowhere near as bad as it was at launch.

    @ -Tj- - Don't know about the Fire Strike score...maybe I misread it and it was 9,995. I was rushing through the benchmarking to be honest so I could switch my cards. What are all the scores you get on your system them (Graphics, Physics and Combined)?

    P.S. Just noticed that the DSR (Downsampling feature) is only included in the Global profile disappointingly which means you can not use it on a per-game basis like I thought. Also, MFAA is notably absent from the driver. Great to have all these exciting new features that either aren't implemented properly or are missing completely. Nice one, NVIDIA. ;)

    ah ok, ye i meant total score there, gpu only was ~10800
    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/2659533


    from what I saw WD got fixed with later updates, some 3gb 780gtx users said it was fixed for them, also it likes fast system ram. :)

    If it was completely fixed you wouldnt see it now with extra vram imo , game code is buggy still, cant fix a turd :D

    More benchmarks results:

    Lost Planet 2 - Test A (DX11, 4xMSAA)

    GTX 980 - 'S' Rating, Ave: 157.3, S1: 153.9, S2: 151.0, S3: 178.4 fps

    Lost Planet 2 - Test B (DX11, 4xMSAA)

    GTX 780 - 'A' Rating, Ave: 89.8 fps
    GTX 980 - 'A' Rating, Ave: 92.2 fps

    Resident Evil 5 - Variable Benchmark (DX11, 8xMSAA, Quality Ambient Occlusion)

    GTX 780 - 'S' Rating, Ave: 129.5, A1: 152.5, A2: 129.3, A3: 115.3, A4: 120.9 fps
    GTX 980 - 'S' Rating, Ave: 162.9, S1: 200.8, S2: 157.3, S3: 150.1, A4: 156.1 fps

    Note: I score 195.6 fps on the GTX 980 with Quality AO disabled in the driver game profile.

    Resident Evil 5 - Fixed Benchmark (DX11, 8xMSAA, Quality Ambient Occlusion)

    GTX 780 - 'S' Rating, Ave: 116.9 fps
    GTX 980 - 'S' Rating, Ave: 121.8 fps


    Note: I score 130.5 fps on the GTX 980 with Quality AO disabled in the driver game profile.

    I did start running the Metro 2033 Redux benchmark but got another driver crash ("Driver has stopped responding and recovered" error) just a few seconds in. The GPU had boosted to 1,329 MHz and temperatures were just 62 degrees C.

    I never had those errors on my GTX 780 except when pushing too high an overclock so does this mean that the 1,240 MHz 'Super Clock' on my EVGA card is unstable? I am using the two separate 6(+2)-pin PCI-e leads that I was using for my GTX 780 so I don't think power is an issue (I have a modular 850 W XFX Pro PSU).

    Any advice on this issue please?

    Is this a driver issue, a problem with the card, what? In my opinion, I should not be getting ANY driver crashes on this card as was sold as a pre-overclocked card. Obviously, if the drivers are crashing on its default clocks then overclocking it is going to be an instant fail too.

    Cheers Darren.

    Also Bios can be manipulated and changed for higher voltage using KBT 1.27. i think.

    I imagine this can be done because 750ti was first gen Maxwell so i would imagine its possible. Only problem is Nvflash needs to be updated first so as soon as that is updated the real fun begins!

    EVGA need to release these dam Classifieds!

    Game time!

    Will report back how the OCing goes.

    First time trying EVGA, hopefully all is well.

    After some testing I have lowered the memory OC to 7700MHz, ran Heaven (1440p all options maxed) for 6 hours at this speed, at 8000Mhz Heaven would crash after about 30 minutes.

    Final 24/7 clocks I settle on are 1550/7700. 3DMark saw a difference of only 50 points, 8000MHz compared to 7700MHz.

    Nice one:)

    Once bios tweaks are available you should be able to increase that aslong as temps are ok.

    I've increased the Power setting from 100% to 125% in Afterburner and also set up a more aggressive fan profile. If the card wasn't getting sufficient power during boosts, would a higher Power setting compensate for this? My understanding is that the two 6-pin PCI-e connectors plus the PCI-e slot itself can provide up to 300 W (150 W + 2 x 75 W). Or could my card be undervolted?

    I must admit I was a bit apprehensive about buying a pre-overclocked card as I've seen countless posts on the GeForce.com forums from people with these driver crashes on these cards. Since the card I have is a reference design then I presume that the specifications and settings for the SC model come from NVIDIA, no?
