    "67 degrees, 2100+mhz" they said

    it'll clock to 2.5ghz on air, they said

    Good news: Guru3D seems more popular than ever.

    Bad news: can't get review page to load

    Well, seems like quite the monster - unarguably.

    700€ for a 80°C beast leave somewhat of a bitter taste, though.

    Nvidia, NotLikeThis.

    I assume that the Founder's additional $100 will be the baseline for board partners, as they're likely gonna stomp the reference design into the ground. Then there's 'big pascal', quite a few months away, of course, but potentially crapping all over the 1070/1080 again.

    I don't expect this card, insofar available to begin with, to drop anytime soon in price.

    Yeah the site is being hammered, 800% increase in traffic. This'll take a few minutes to resolve.

    Woo somehow read it. :D

    It like it, but I don't like it enough to replace my Titan X just yet.

    Hands down it's a powerhouse. No doubt about that.

    Power draw is down a considerable amount, that's awesome too!

    Performance is great, but not a significant amount over what I have now.

    I would have to score a pretty sweet deal to get one of these, but anyone with a 970 or lower would easily get a nice upgrade with one of these.

    The dynamic load balancing looks really interesting. Still trying to get through the rest. PcPer is getting hit hard too.

    Hitman/W3 numbers are impressive. 2 should be fine for 4K.

    my 3-way 980 was JUST enough for 4k.


    Almost twice as fast as 980 in GTA V.

    Almost 100% increase across the board over my 970 (Which is struggling at 1440p/60 FPS let alone the 144 I'd like for my 144hz monitor). So I still plan on getting one when available.

    Most boring change of node ever, and for $800 (after exchange rates and taxes) I´d demand more than a 25% improvement over the latest full chip and more than console amounts of memory... I mean seriously 800?, it´s not even the real deal Pascal and not built from the ground up as a DX12 chip either... people should get a discount.

    So what i got from that is,

    Wait for board partners way better coolers, because what they said about the 2100mhz 69 degrees is complete bull**** and probably had the AC blowing directly on the card.

    Overclocking is really mehhhhhhhhhh on the reference cooler.

    Nice, thanks for the review HH. Makes my 970 look like a child, lol. I can't wait to see the 1070's numbers.

    Perfect upgrade for me, just need to wait for custom cooled ones.
