Cut down on 2 coffees per month ;-)

Maybe it's time to move to the AX1500i. rolleyes.gif

Not to mention time to check with the wiring in your house to make sure that the outlet that you plug that computer in has its OWN 15A circuit breaker and nothing else is on it.

Don't see anything wrong with 250-300W if it provides the performance to go with it and has decent cooling. If the rumors of a hybrid reference cooler are true then temperature and noise should be alright. There will almost certainly be the next step down card at ~150-200W, so anyone with heat or power concerns can compare that to existing 970/980 options.

Once again we're on OCN, go get a Uni block/Full Block/AIO ghetto solution (even the ones from Corsair/NZXT looks ghetto)/after market cooler (Arctic Cooler), and be done with it.

And how many of you jokers even invest in a reference cooled card anyways? Most of you rip that crap off and replace it for the most part with a EK block rolleyes.gif

Reading through this thread and watching people cry about the tdp is just shameful.

The 680 and 980 are not high end chips.

This isn't a 680 or a 980, it's a 480/580 or a 780ti. 300w isn't a huge amount, it's already beaten by tweaked 290 or gk110. No record there, if they use a clc they can easily push the chip harder from factory than they could with the terrible 290/290x reference cooler.

If you want a 150-200w version instead of a 300w version - congratz, nvidia already did it with the 970/980 (the 980 will fall significantly in price when these things release) and AMD's probably going to follow up with a weaker card than flagship too.

Won't be that much different from when Nvidia releases 3072 core / 384 bit chip, at comparable over/underclocks. 980 can already hit 225-250w on air, but it can also perform great on 150w. 780ti can hit 350w, but also perform great on 225 etc.

So the current fastest GPU available isnt high end? We're limited by 28nm, AMD's next GPU will be 28nm too, I bet it won't beat 980 by more than 10% and hope it won't be needing CLC to do that.

We need 16/14nm FF before we see something truly great.

what? if the fastest current nivida cards are not high end i dont know what else is unless you are delusional and confused high power consumption with high end.

being a hog doesnt make it powerful, its just means its a hog.

6 liter v8 @ 300kw doesnt mean its better then a turbo v6 @ 350kw, all that v8 does is waste fuel and being inefficient which is exactly what AMD is.

why dont you use a netburst P4 or a 220w FX because its obviously high end to you because it has more ghz and uses more power. mean while i;d enjoy my silent and cool running i7 T
post #298 of 772
Chip size denotes high end, by your logic 680 is high end even though there is another chip on same architecture and manufacturing process that's a good 70% faster. Sure, the performance of 680 was the best out there at the time, but it wasn't the big chip and everybody knew that.

If the rumored gm200 specs are true, Nvidia can beat a 290/970 by solid ~50-85% with it (at similar clock speeds). AMD should be able to make a higher performance chip too; their new 7970 would compete against the 970, not their new 290

No matter what you want to call it, the 680 for its time was the high end chip.

No matter how you and everyone wants to see it the the 980 is the flagship high end chip.

nVidia presented them this way, this is how it is. Just because they no longer follow their older nomenclature scheme of having x00/x10 card being the flagship does not bean the the 680/980 are not for its time their Flagship/high end product.

Also just because nVidia has a better card in their coin purse (680 > GK110 that turned into the Titan), did not mean the 680 wasn't the 'it' card.

We as consumers just need to get used it that they felt/feel this is good enough for the consumer market.

Nvidia CEO himself was pitching the 970, 980 to 670, 680 owners. The 680 did have enough performance over the 580 to entice quite a few people, thanks to the node jump. I don't think the 980 is nearly as tempting for 780, 780ti owners. There is obviously a maximum performance, rather than efficient performance, market as seen from dual gpu cards and the Titan and 780 series, it's just Nvidia has yet to refresh that segment.
