Running 2 tasks on the 1070, I am at 55c and the fan at 59%.

Founders edition, single centrifugal (blower) fan?
eg



Running 2 tasks on the 960, I am at 41c and the fan at 32%.

Non reference card, larger than reference heatsink with multiple fans?
eg




Both in the same system?
GTX 960 closest to edge of motherboard (bottom of case), GTX 1070 closest to CPU?

GTX 1070 150W
GTX 960 120W

GTX 960 draws 20% less power, most likely has a better cooler, and possibly better position in case (not drawing in heat from the back of other card)?

I suspect they're the most likely reasons for the temperatures seen here; when I had 2*GTX 750Tis in my C2D, the one drawing air in from the back of the other video card was only a couple of degrees warmer, but the fans were about 10-12% faster to keep it there.


Yep.

I did have a 760 in the case with the 960, but it came out, the 960 moved down to the 4x slot and the 1070 went into the 16x slot.

Grant I think you are describing a straight-up die shrink of an exact same chip design... Whereas the GP104 is a new architecture so there's no baseline really.


GTX 1080 180W GTX 980 165W GTX 1070 150W GTX 970 134W GTX 980Ti 250W


That they only use 8% and 3% more power than the previous comparable model means things should be as I suggested.
Even with the higher clock speeds, on the new manufacturing process the temperatures should be only slightly hotter- for a given fan speed with the same cooling solution as the older hardware.
The power ratings are similar, so the temperatures will be similar- given the same heatsinks & fans & fan speeds (and die area & heatspreader contact area and heatspreader to die thermal coupling etc if you really want to get down to the nitty gritty; wasn't there an Intel CPU that used less power than the previous series, but got hotter due to the changed method of getting the heat from the die to the heatspreader?).

And the fact they use up to 40% less power and outperform the previous top of the range cards is pretty impressive IMHO.

Of course the 1070 is spanking the 960.

The Group Policy Object problem with KB3159398 will probably only affect workers attached to corporate networks - that may include some people here, but they'll know who they are. And they won't be doing their own updates anyway.

I only saw one non-security update, and it said it was for time-zone changes only. I went ahead and installed, and no ill-effects so far.


Owing to the fact that I don't care about time zone changes elsewhere, I hid that one as well.

Also since I have IE 11 disabled, I hid that update as well.

I just looked at my profile page and realized it doesn't show that I'm a
seti donor. I think our profile pages should show that with the green star
or with a status in the column on the right, or something. How do we get
that added? Anyone?

Edit: Okay, I just saw that if you click on "Account data; View" you can
see that I'm a donor. But I wonder how many people go that far when they
look at a profile.

Oh well. Never mind.


Anybody not you goes straight to your account data page.

But, you can also view when how many donations you have made and when the last one was by looking a bit further down on your account page.

Posted 17 May 2016 by Profile arkaynProject Donor
Huh, nope, it says 192 Unified, whatever that means.

Unified Shaders = CUDA cores.

Perhaps GPUz is only reading the number per SM. The 760 192-bit card is listed as having 6 SM & 6*192 = 1152


Looking at my EVGA GTX 760, I have 1152 shaders with a 256 bit bus width. Direct Compute 5.0

GPU clock: 980
Memory: 1502
Boost: 1033

...and again a bunch of updates, most seem harmless/useful.

Only the BIG update for IE11 concerns me, because it bundles a lot of other things with it... :?


Since I disabled IE on my system, I just hide that update now.

As it was just an observation nothing more, I will leave this thread to go whichever way it wants.


As long as it does not go completely off track, I don't care all that much.

Wind over 42 mph killed the power here on Thorsday, that was fixed in about 10 minutes.


The rest of my canopy is taking a beating currently, the part that was down was moved quite a ways from the force of the wind.

Windy as all get out.

"Winds NNW at 25 to 35 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph."

I'm still waiting to see the new Update Client for April appear. Every month since July or August has had one. It will likely be in this upcoming Tuesday's pile of updates, but the past few months.. between the 1st and 3rd is when those months have had their new update clients released, so why not this month as well? Oh, right.. because I bet there's so much new crap being added in these iterations that it falls into the category of being released on Patch Tuesday. Just my hunch. Guess we'll see how that pans out.


Guess what showed up once again, our "favorite" compatibility patches un-hidden by them once again.
