ATI released a new video card driver that has an insane performance in games and overclocking benchmarks as well. TeamAU’s hard hitting SniperOZ just posted a bombshell 3DMARK11 world record for single card, surpassing GTX680 but a whopping 800 points. It seems AMD is determined to keep the performance crown.
Congrats Carl, well done!
I see he’s armed with a GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 and MSI 7970 Lightning . Kickass score right there!
James T (youngpro) from TeamAU created a handy little tool which allows overclockers to change the speed of their system on the fly with 4 separate profiles that ties into GTL (GIGABYTE Tweak Launcher) software. He calls it Hotkey Control Tool. EasyTune 6 used to have this function on previous chipset but it hasn’t been implemented yet on Z77 as software team is hard at work with a complete refresh of the ET tool.
In the meantime you can use this nifty tool to jump frequencies as simply as hitting function keys (F1, F2, F3 and F4). Keys are fully programmable and I’ve made a brief video explaining how to use it but for a full description make sure you jump to James’ blog AT THIS LINK.
Thanks for sharing James, this will no doubt make it a hell of a lot easier to bench GIGABYTE boards subzero!
