    kinda didnt get with "cost saving" model as price seems not different much either
    i think they just replacing "reference model" with slight oc

    while gaming series serve premium model for people looking best performance

    by the time they release it and reach to market stock, it will be few months before new nvidia released lol

    The lightening edition is supposed to be the crown jewel of MSI , just I hope they don't mess it up like the 290X

    The Lightning will be a piece of engineering art. Even if ti comes out late, it will be more for the PR it will get on websites and from extreme LN2 overclockers. I loved my 2x680s Lightnings, but they were probably the worst bang for the buck I ever spent (still have one for collectotion's sake, it looks so freaking bad-ass). :p

    They have not released an Nvidia "lightning" edition in a while now. They had to stop that due to the green light program, I believe is what I was told. I am still using my gtx 770 lightning cards, they have been great, but I think its time to move on. *EDIT, just found a few articles talking about a 980 ti lightning......... interesting, now may have to wait longer......

    I had the 580 Lightning, and it really was a really good card. Was happy with it until this Spring when I updated.

    But usually, iirc, the Lightning's have always been the last versions to be released, so I won't expect them to be around until this autumn, probably September or October, if not later.
