A 12mh overclock is the type of marketing gimmick for the dummies we have nowadays. Personally it just pisses me off as that´s just a reason to call a card "overclocked". But to charge 100usd more for it? If true, then **** you Sapphire.

Surely they should be marketing that as a 24mhz OC overall (2x12mhz)?

If they can get away with it, why not?

Besides, just buy the regular 295x2 and OC it yourself

Exactly

Sadly, some people are stupid enough to fall for such a marketing ploy.

SLI mate, stop. You know better.

People are making a fuss about an OC version of this card due to 12mhz? How many cards out there right now label themselves as OC versions with very minor OC's? It's not just Sapphire or this card. It's everyone in the industry. Not worth bitching about.

Not much different than the pathetic overclocks on every factory OC card. The only thing that matters very much is the cooling solution that the card has.

My 680s ran 1241 1198 without any oc stock boost was 1150 from reference clocks. 1058 the 680s boosted to 1280 with 0 offset with the unlocked bios. Reference 780 ti boost is 928mhz iirc. 1046 is my sc speed. And oc up to 1189 with added added voltage. Not too shabby if you ask me.

And yet it doesn't even matter in the least because they're all still pathetic overclocks that you can get higher than in two clicks of the mouse once you install it.

Factory overclocks are just for marketing purposes, they make the difference of like 1fps.

I think that had a base clock of 550MHz, so that's like a 5% OC which is actually decent for a factory OC.
