You guys are missing the point. GPU Boost is much better than Powertune because NVIDIA does voltage adjustment on the fly. Look at this graph from Techpowerup:


They go from 876 MHz at 987 mV to 1020 at 1175 mV. You are looking at a almost linear graph between graphics clock and voltage.

AMD on the other hand: 727 MHz at 1200 mV to 1000 MHz at 1200 mV. At this rate how the hell can AMD expect to vary clocks as well as NVIDIA does?

AMD i think really messed up when they did the "up to" label. They are basically selling this card you can get Up to this performance outta the card outta best case scenario, you got prefect air flow and a room constant temp of like 68f or even open air bench. Problem is most people don't have that. ISP's use this UP to crap and its annoying when you don't get near what they say.

We are lucky to have Ryan looking out for the consumer and calling BS on these companies when it is warranted.
