Anyone have an estimated release date??

 

I found this:  http://www.evga.com/products/pdf/04G-P4-3978-KR.pdf  

 

And This: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-270-EA  Which points to the 30Th..

 

But that is about it....

Got my SSC+ 970. Don't get it though, I thought the card was supposed to have 33% higher power limit? My card is showing only +10 max in both Afterburner (extended overclock) and Precision X on both bioses.

I'm not sure, but they probably updated the default power limit by 33% (so 100% is now 33% higher than before), and you can also manually increase that by another 10%.

Either way, if you mod your BIOS, you can change the limit to whatever you want. Check out this thread for more details: http://www.overclock.net/t/1467851/nvidia-maxwell-kepler-bios-editing-thread-gtx-2xx-to-9xx-now-supported

Too much work and my card seems to be hard capped at 1546 anyways. Adding more volts didn't help and it's not dropping above that it's crashing. Still 1546 isn't too shabby.

No that's great! I think I got my Gigabyte cards to around that range before it became unstable. I leave it at 1480 now though to just keep a nice headroom of stable.

I just really want the EVGA cards because they have a much better warranty and the company in general is amazing IMO. Plus step up is nice....maybe big max in the next 3 months??....probably not for another year, but what a surprise that would be!

oh sweet...thanks for asking Jacob. I'm really hoping these are at least on par with my Gigabyte G1s because IMO it'll be worth it to just have evga again...the FTW+ looks like it'll be as good if not better than the Gigabyte cards so I'm excited!

FTW+ is now available on both newegg as well as the EVGA store (auto notify currently) in the US, including the ability to step up from the FTW to FTW+.

The stock 100% power target for the new SSC is 201w with 110% being 222w compared to 170w and 187w for all the prior EVGA 970s.
