Exactly. I don't see any other reviews around presently, so hopefully some other sites will have more promising results. It's not looking good though if this one has Elpida.

I'm not a hater of Elpida either, it's just much less common for their memory to perform under extreme conditions. The card has a memory defroster for cripes sakes! They couldn't use worthwhile RAM in there to be defrosted at least?


Anyone know if there is going to be a Gigabyte SOC 290X?

The Lightning faired better than this on air cooling didn't it?

No one knows for sure, but if you have Elpida then it is probably the card. They seemed to have more problems at launch.

The 290X lightnings have samsung ram which is even better than Hynix for timings and overclocks. For me though, I can't shout, the elpida ram on my card overclocks by 20% easily from 1250 to 1500 and my card can bench at 1250 core as long as temps are kept in check. I doubt this feat will be feasible with most of the matrix cards though. Why you ask? See... I had the matrix 7970 ghz edition and it was a sham. It could barely hold stock core and memory clocks without artifacting in explorer. Had to increase core and memory voltage to stabilize the card at the supposedly factory clocks.
The funny thing though was that there were a select few that had perfectly working cards but I doubt it was up to half of those that had the card.

If I could of forked out the $900 for a lightning I would of, those things are beasts. I havent clocked my card yet, easily hits 90 on stock clocks... well stock overclocks tongue.gif so I'm gonna wait till I get it underwater

Probably gonna get flamed for this but... A lot of Asus cards seem like gimmicks, so many complains about the DirectCU cards and the reviews I've seen on the Matrix ones are a joke
