That is my honest opinion unless Nvidia releases better drives i really dont see that much gains in gaming scenarios.

OC wise there is some thing holding back these cards i dunno what though temperatures are fine core to core seems slower then Maxwell, OC 2000mhz is not really impressive on bench testing but every point counts right!

I'm coming from a 970 SLI and I have to power a 4k TV and an incoming 27' 1440p 144hz Gsync monitor so I'm pretty sure in the long run I will be happy with the 1080, thanks God I sold my 970s for 900 USD in my country so I'm not paying that much for the 1080 upgrade tongue.gif I wish I can sell the 1080 for 1200-1500 USD when the Titan Pascal is available.

I will send u some 970 and split the profit:)

GALAX GTX 1080 HoF: 2.2 GHz on air, 2.5 GHz with LN2

During Computex, Galaxy succeeded in its stand to reach a GPU frequency of 2500 megahertz using liquid nitrogen beating extreme overclocked Geforce GTX Titan X and GTX 980 Ti on the fingers. With a significantly overclocked 10-core Core i7-6950X CPU, MAD really impressive results in all 3DMark suites. It was not enough to beat the 980 Ti or Titan X overclocked to over 2.2 gigahertz.

Galaxy consultant and tame overclocker MAD was responsible for overclocking feat engines and NordicHardware took the opportunity to talk in more detail about the potential of Nvidia's new GPU. Among other things, dealt with the fact that not even the partners made in 1080 GTX card yet can compromise on extreme overclocked GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards. And hopefully we can see frequencies up to 3 GHz when manufacturers and overclockers cross the boards current restrictions. There MAD otherwise did not see the lonely 8-pin connector on Founder's Edition as a problem for traditional overclockers.

After a closer insight into extreme overclockers view on Geforce Pascal, there is no doubt that even Nvidia's latest GPU architecture is a very capable overclocker. However, it will probably take some time before the partners and enthusiasts will really be able to push Nvidia silicon to its ultimate limits.

FTW has a bigger/more effective cooler than the SC, better PCB, better VRM (cooler temps regardless of the necessity in terms of OCing), dual bios, RGB lighting (if that's your thing), and the best warranty in the biz. The price is MORE than worth it if you ask me. Why do people even buy the STRIX line of cards? I've only seen terribly limited stock bioses, poor cooling (both hotter and louder), and the sometimes hassle of poor product support.

Second I listed the numerous reasons why the FTW version is worth the extra 30$ over the SC, and for an enthusiast most should be something you're paying attention to.

The overall point is that I see zero reason to buy a STRIX 1080 outside of wanting a 1080 ASAP, or if you're just going to grab a block for it. Destine to come with a bad stock bios, loudest 1080 cooler from AIB we've seen so far, worst thermals we've seen from the AIB coolers so far, and smeh customer support. The reasoning wasn't solely directed at you, more so I'm surprised so many people are willing to shell out for the STRIX model when both MSI and Gigabyte will likely have better alternatives in the same price range.

The warranty on the SC and the FTW both show 3 years on the EVGA page. I thought it was the Classified that gets the all-out warranty?

Also, to put down the Strix card that hasn't been reviewed yet, but put the FTW card in high standing without reviews is a bit contradicting.

In the end, I'm skeptical of the Stix card as well, but it took EVGA that long to announce clocks for the FTW, only for them to be so low from the start? The Strix cards are supposedly running high 1800s from the get-go. Just my 2-cents, but I say we let both cards come out and be reviewed by several sites before we jump to conclusions smile.gif.

So it appears to us that the screen disparity on Ashes snow rendering was caused by NV driver 368.19. Driver 368.25 should be fixed.

couple of tweets bellow pellyNV said
Weird. 368.19 was a press-only driver and not public. 368.25 was the first public driver. Wonder where they got that driver.

Apparently the G1 was put on sale ~7-8 hours ago. Out-of-stock now and my notification I signed up for did not notify me whatsoever. A bit bummed frown.gif.

out of all custom 1080 that were reviewed thus far MSI GAMING X is quietest and runs coolest. keep in mind that many of them aren't reviewed yet so we simply have no clue how they perform. new EVGA style is so-so, they abandoned their signature subtle design and gone with flashy bling bling LEDs etc.

I'm trying to figure that out as well. So far the Galax HOF AND EVGA Classified interest me the most. I'm leaning towards HOF more though. There are no reviews on them yet however.
