well in terms of features it will be the same because we have voltage up to 1.5v and enough of a tdp limit to cover using 1.5v but the big different is the gk110 chip used. right now with skyn3t's bios we have 587w and I think the newer revision is 600w so unless the voltage goes higher than 1.5v, no tdp limit doesn't help because the voltage is the bottleneck on my cards not the tdp limit. Anyways for regular watercooling 1.5v is a little high. Temps start to go over 70c even with a waterblock and it doesn't really make my card go any faster. I didn't see any benefits above 1.45v. I would need colder cooling to take advantage of anything higher.
This new Kingpin card has me so confused now though. I was totally set on a 780 ti classified but now I don't know what to do. I don't want to buy 2 and then kick myself because the kingpin version is better. Also with that 3dmark screen shot szeged posted I am confused if there is even 2 cards now or if it is a Kingpin Classified.
I also hope the ti classified only has 3gb of ram. I think it will bench a lot better with only 3gb so we don't have to worry about overclocking the entire 6gb. I would imagine memory overclocks would be higher with less ram chips to overclock and to hold the others back. 6gb Kingpin edition doesn't make any sense to me because a card like that would not be designed for gaming and that's the only reason 6gb would be useful. I went thru about 4 different titans and all of them were really bad with memory overclocks.
