Comparing Classy 780, TI, K|ngp|n to Classy 980? What are the expectations here? I'm surprised I haven't seen an Excel chart on the normal guess 20- 25% performance increase for web clicks, from that 4 letter word website, pun intended... Of course we are already seeing ridiculous clocks 1500 on air and some 1600+ on water from reference 980's/970's...
Also I was surprised I didn't see the Hydro Classy talked about, in regards to someone mentioning EK Water blocks for the 980... What gives? Of course EK is already making blocks for the regular 980 Hydro so there's a contract, but is it exclusive? IE the only way we'll see a WB for classy is to buy an EVGA Hydro at $ cost? Just a question as I like options on my blocks personally, clear acrylic for example etc and EVGA has traditionally had blocks completely blacked out.
WTB: Hydro Classy 980 Clear Acrylic... (I know dream on...)
One could only hope for a 8G model release on Middle Maxwell, though I fear we will only see that once AMD show's their hand. (And to pre-comment responses, Developers cannot develop for it if it does not exist, I also GPU render so my needs are quite different from pure gamers) We do see some games bumping up against current memory limit's under certain circumstances.
