It varies. The 980 Classified came very late, several months later than the 980 release IIRC, and was way overpriced. The 980 Ti Classified released 2 weeks after reference and was priced very decently.
The 980 Ti FTW actually came way later than the Classified, but that was an exception rather than the rule.
but eVGA usually put some news somewhere to people know they actually gonna release the Classified or they suddenly release the card?
i mean, they are releasing several photos here and there, that probably mean they wont take months to release now, probably like 980 Ti... right?
sorry for those dumb questions, last eVGA card that i bought was a 7800 GS SSC
