I'm having a hard time understanding whats going on between my Gigabyte G1 980Ti (Hynix) and a friends EVGA 980Ti Classified (Samsung) when running Firestrike 1.1.
Both in the same PC, same drivers his graphics score is well beyond mine regardless how much I overclock the G1.
Anomaly 1: He picked up 1000 graphics score going from Bios 1 to LN2 bios > Most of the difference was made up in Test 2.
Anomaly 2: His card is pulling a far larger score at 1543/2078 then my card at 1595/2178.
Is the Classified LN2 bios overclocking the sub-timings of his Vram to completely trump my card in test 2? In all my years overclocking/benchmarking ive never seen such confusing results when run on the same system. He picked up nearly 10 fps on graphics test 2 alone with, from what I saw, was a flick of a bios switch.
On the G1 I'm experiencing no throttling what so ever. I'm also getting positive scaling the more I overclock.
What on earth is going on? We've run firestrike over the cards over 30 times with close with no more then +/- 0.2 fps variance which suggest something is definately skewing the results dramatically in his favor.
