    Looks like SG is a rebrand of EX series. EX was cheaper than MSI Ventus, yet being better than MSI Gaming.

    It does exist in Asia and I'm glad Hilbert reviewed these cards. Because it doesn't exist in your country doesn't mean it doesn't exist in other country.
    Thanks for the review bos!

    It's going to be hard then for 3rd party vendors to have a good range of cards like for example Gigabtye going from bog standard all the way up to AORUS Xtreme cards. There's usually 4 different levels of card for Gigabyte at least that i know of.

    They can't really sell an AORUS Xtreme card with only tiny clock increases. Will be interesting to see if they can actually push these chips any harder.

    The value proposition is hard to make Hilbert, when FE is that good, all the cards at MRSP, FE level, sudden;y took a price hike on pre order. One UK supplier, I put a card shown at £649.99 FE price in UK, came to checkout it was now £729.99, so not only the scalpers after a quick buck. Same over all the suppliers it seem. AIOB are on a bummer with this one fopr sure, but the suppliers need a look at for scalping as well.

    I agree just stop reviewing these cards as they are just vaporware. No one is interested any more because you can't buy these cards. Total joke TBH. Shame on you Nvidia. Please Hilbert stop peddling their out of stock cards it's becoming embarrassing.

    Looked at OCUK forums and lots of unhappy bunnies with the MSRP climbing when checking out on PreOrder, doesn't look like any are available lower than £680, most north of £700, even £800 on the etailers, for cards that can't as Hilbert has shown with those already tested differ much in performance from FE the Value proposition is non existent. If I could have orderd one at MSRP would have gone for it but if its a6 week eta as shown on the one I would have ordered, better to wait to see what AMD produce. I built latest rig on X570 with a 2700x, as was expecting Zen 3 about now in January so will be upgrading CPU anyway, Might see what RTX3700 brings, the Nvidia Broadcast app just released needs Tensor cores to work, so some subtle push by Nvidia to make RTX essential to Twitchers and Streamers? Will be interesting when the rumoured £600 is released and where they place that it needs to be sub£300 to be worthwhile for the GTX 1660 users to upgrade, even a basic similar cores to 6GB RTX 2060 RTX3050 at £200?
