    Overclocking GeForce GTX 480 with extra GPU voltageYesterday we released an update of AfterBurner we implemented and thus added voltage control for the 470/480 cards in MSI AfterBurner revision 1.6.0...

    Pretty amazing what that GPU can do with some extra megaherkz

    The link for the comments go to the Zalman X10 review.

    That is quite a few frames gained and quite powerful. Shrinking that die over time will give Nvidia quite a powerful chip in future.

    For now my 5870 is perfect :)

    Pretty impressive once overclocked, was that not done using watercooling then?

    If not, any plans to WC it hilbert? see how much further you can push it?

    No, the article states at these settings, the GPU hit 90C at 100% fan speed.

    A far cry from every day settings, but yes, it does bode well for a watercooled variant, but then again watercooled 5870s can hit upward of 1100.

    Would be curious to know how it affects something like an i7 if it's in the same loop, temperature-wise.

    EDIT: ARG! Where's the 1ghz 5870 comparison?!

    I gotta say, the article has limited usefulness without it.

    Oh yes, well lets hope Hilbert Chucks than danger den block he mentioned on and gives us an update ;)

    yeah that would be interesting, sure would be dumping a lot of additional heat into the loop.

    EDIT

    Yeah was hoping for overclocked results of 5870 to be in there too

    Problem is that the card might crap out if it doesn't get enough juice

    Oh yeah, it can only recieve 300watts cant it. Should have put two 8Pin on it, stuff that 300watt coblers ;)

    heat and power aside, can you imagine what the perf of one of these babys will do when OC'd like this and with 512 shaders as orginally planned.......

    Just goes to show what might have been, or what the future will bring.......

    WC versions should really have 2 8-pins or even 6-8-8

    I wish you would've made a little MP3 of the stock cooler and it running at 100 percent. I can only imagine that it wasn't very comfortable to listen to.

    This is the first video card that I would have to use a separate WC loop. The 5800 Ultra got a bad wrap for being a blow dryer, what about this thing?

    This shows imo that we're better off waiting for the revision but also that the new nvidia series are capable of alot. They just need to get the temps and power usage down for the next revision.

    Really nice gain seen there, a little less power and heat and we have a winnder, well not even that, reduce the price.

    i like the articles here but i find it unfair to compare the 480 overclocked to a 5870 stock.
    i know it is a 480 article but there are plenty of stupid people out there that will say hey look at that it is way faster now they couldn't even overclock the ati card.


    also damn that card gets hot 90c at 100% fan speed

    8+8+6 would be 22, so, yeah, pretty much.

    any idea about the extra power consumption or did i miss it?

    Yeah, no power consumption numbers, no water cooling, no 5870 comparison...I gotta say, the article, while slightly informative and interest piquing, seems incomplete.

    You can get more than 300watts from the PSU...it just pulls power out of specification.
