Group think? Confirmation BIAS? ...... NO
I've seen Nvidia cripple GK110 to make Maxwell look a lot better. The Nerf is real. More noticeable on some games more than others, even synthetic benchmarks will prove that out.
I had to buy a beefier power supply and just run GTA on brute horsepower 1386mhz 1.4v, let's see how long before one or both cards burn. Lol. When I get and if I get on the Pascal ship, it probably be the X70 no more flagship for me if Nvidia keeps pulling this Nerf to upgrade BS.
