1354MHz boost gets 105%, 1178MHz boost gets 100%. Either the frequency is a flat out lie or that's the most abysmal scaling there is. A 15% core frequency increase for a 5% performance improvement...

There is a memory component to it which is always lacking on the green coast.

well the 380 is perfect for 1080p at high settings, i bought one and it plays everything smoothly, but for 1440p it's not that good, don't know why they are marketing it for 1440p

i never saw the 960 as a good value. wouldn't the 128bit buss interface hurt the 960 overall? 4gb of ram on a 128bit interface? let alone 2gb?

You would think, but that's not the case. Their bus efficiency is extremely good.

i got the gigabyte oc 4gb 960 @1530

1st its very cool, very very coooooool. and quite, extremely quiet, so this is a great for like a living room type of build but... it throttles, nvidia suck 4 this, go amd, i will soon after 4 months of this i cant take much more im about ready 2 put my gigabyte 660oc back in just so i can keep a stable clock till i can afford a fury.

how can it be cool but throttle at the same time?
and why even compare those cards at 1440p ? none card in none of these tests got the avg of 50 fps even once. I don't think I've seen people go 1440p with a 960/380, or the other way round, go with 960/380 for a 1440p display. R9 290 is the lowest recommended for 1440p around here, and it's a fairly correct assumption.
I'd much rather see them at 1080p 144hz uncapped.

It looks like with both Maxwell and Tonga including some fancy new compression and memory management tricks, the 256-bit bus and memory controller on the 380 is just a little more robust at dealing with the extra Vram than the 960. I ran a pair of 380 4GB cards in Crossfire at 1440p and they matched an R9 Fury within 1-2%.

Haven't had a chance to personally test the 960 yet but I am playing with a 1404mhz 950 in my spare rig at the moment.

I also thought my eyesight was bad!! Every time I moved up a res I've thought wow, every time I got the hp to max out the sliders at that res I've thought meh, in fact I'd rather have the extra visibility and fps for the games I play like arma and battlefield from turning certain settings down a little.
