Trinity hardware has not yet been released, but there is already full support for it in the open source driver.
    Please don't feed the troll.

    Thanks,

    I'd be happy if the article included the clock speed.

    In a previous article, you said "The reference core clock on the GTX 680 is 1006MHz"
    In this article, you listed 705/3004 for the Nvidia driver


    At what frequency was nouveau running the card? Is "705" the core clock? Why was it only running at 705 for the Nvidia blob and not "1006"?

    Basically, I need to have some way of reconciling the difference in results beyond "they're clocked differently"

    I thought I read somewhere (...was it here?) that there's a bug in the nvidia driver and the clock speed is reported incorrectly.
