I'm sure it could, actually. Nvidia is just prioritizing efficiency over performance - the card doesn't even utilize full power of the pci express slot.

The prioritization of efficiency over speed is puzzling given that this is a 1000$ card.

Evga_ JacobF - What is your interpretation of this somewhat cryptic statement by Nvidia? Can you please elaborate for the benefit of all of us here?

Water did help a little bit for clocks. Although I dislike the throttle it isn't really a deal breaker, even while throttling the card is still beastly.
I still want to find a way to bypass the power limit for higher scores, but not disappointed in Titan.

Yeah, the card performs great at stock speeds. Without a doubt, it's a great card (if overpriced). The overclocking and throttling situation is disappointing though, considering nvidia hyped it as an overclockers part. That was a complete bluff on their part, if not an outright lie. The truth of the matter is, GPU boost 2.0 is even worse than GPU boost 1.0 in terms of getting great overclocks.

Well $1000 or $5000 does not mater they try to keep it under PCI-e specs, everything over is out of specs and not any company will do that no mater what.
Titan at the TDP limit provided is still the fastest card out there... that's why we have custom bios so you can go crazy if you want on your own risk.

I think you're under a mistaken impression here. The pci express slot can handle a ton of power, Kepler doesn't even come close to utilizing it fully. Instead, we have 1x 6 pin + 1x 8 pin connector
when nvidia easily could have bumped the power up and put 2x 8 pin connectors on the card.

By your definition, every Fermi GTX 480/580 card on the market was out of spec.

Maybe im wrong but i had impression that provided 106% power limit was close to max PCI-e specs maybe a bit less for safety...
That does not mean we cant go over Max specs but no official company will let you do that.

What is the actual official PCI-e Power limit under specs?

A PCI express 3.0 slot can handle up to 1500 watts. That's not realistic but that is the maximum per the pci sig.

If 265W were the maximum, LN2 competitions wouldn't exist. Those guys use probably 600-800W per slot/card with so much overclocking.

Is it worth buying a EVGA SC?

Are they binned better? Or is it just horse **** and you might as well get the stock one?

So after reading Nvidia's latest statement, I've come to understand that if I want to hit 1200Mhz, I'll have to flash the custom BIOS that's on this site with a higher power limit since Nvidia probably has no plans to raise it for us.
