    Durapro sounds more like a name for a condom.

    Can somebody tell me what is the big difference from other 980TIs and this one? I seriously don't seem to get it...

    I couldn't agree with you more man! I seriously cannot believe that some of the companies out there are still creating 980 Ti variations. It literally makes no sense for them to do that, unless of course there's going to be something that doesn't already exist. Even so - we'll most likely get some of the "new technology" in Q3 this year, so why on earth would anyone buy 980Ti at this point? Sure there'll be some people, but the market simply will not be there for it. It's way too late!

    Also quite frankly - I have never even heard of this company before and in all honesty I cannot see them selling more than a handful of these graphic cards; unless they have a significantly lower price than the competition.

    What I meant is, what is the actual difference between this 980Ti and a MSI 980Ti Gaming for instance, that's what I don't get. If it's the same chip, same vram, same board, why should any professional take this card over a better cooler card (Asus, MSI, for instance).

    (Never mind that most 980Ti sales these days are SLI users ditching their 970s/980s, and most likely not many more sales besides that.)

    You have to pass an expert exam before buying the card. They won't ship it to you until you provide proof that you are a true expert.

    More like Br0dude expert oriented... lol.

    Just from a visual POV this card looks bad, the fact that I never heard of the company before doesn't help either.

    Whats with the hate?

    This card comes with much fun, very fps....

    Honestly it better be deeply discounted. Chinese products always make me nervous, it may have cheap counterfeited components or it could be great.

    I guess I'm the only one who kinda likes the design. Reminds of ASUS Matrix. Well a few step behind design wise but still good.

    Don't know about the cooling/overclock performance of this card but one more Vendor doesn't hurt. Better for us.

    I wish them the best of luck! :thumbup:
