My Vantage GPU score is 7k more than there's. I think it has something to do with the GPU boost. Even though it is set to 1058, I have noticed the cards going up to 1125. I think I need to find out how to disable it to get more accurate benches.

Same goes for 3DMark11.

Anandtech used the Evga Precision X to back down the power target to -16%. If you keep it from having power headroom it should keep it from overclocking itself.

I had Galaxy GTX 680 in my hands, but decided not to buy it, will wait when EVGA GTX 680 is available.
