since i'm a genius and all that; then apprehensive would have been better verbiage; both are the same as having a concern but suspicion infers wrong doing thumb.gif

get what ever you want, iirc all cards went through cycles of good batches and bad batches w/maxwell.

But it is strange three FTW's not clocking to even 2000 MHz, that's really bad and below the average FE overclock.

silicon lottery. my friend's FE can't reach 2000mhz too

Funny how the blame is going to the AIBs and ignoring the possibility that maybe GP104 just isn't the incredible overclocker that Nvidia made it out to be. tongue.gif

Well they don't really help matters by releasing models with extra pins, water cooling, and gimmicky names like "superclocked".

Its proven incredibly expensive. What are the 'cheapest' ones running at? $619?
post #5746 of 6175
It's this FE nonsense that's screwing everything up. It is just reference and should've been the $599 card. Then I would simply recommend skipping the ultimately useless AIB cards and going reference because OCing is the same no matter what. But at $700 friggin reference becomes the most expensive! It's a real slap to the face of their customers tbh.

here in oz, all cards are sold out from the bigger sites, and thats at 1139+ AUS$. That's what the 980 ti's started at way back then. I picked a new 980 ti for 975, a great price at the time. I hope the same to happen again, but I will not hold my breath. The only thing that will bring that price down is the 1080 ti/titan should they come to market. There is no guarantee that they will ever release those if we keep paying these prices. A ti would cost at least 1500 here compared to the 1080 , and thats where I draw the line. The 975 I paid was through gritted teeth. I will never pay more for a card, and thankfully, 980 ti can play all I am playing at the moment 60fps plus on my X34. The gsync will help. as time goes on and frame rates drop, but I am hoping that dx12 developments will help further. As sexy as these cards are, and as happy as I am for those that have them, not this time NVIDIA. I will have to upgrade one day, nut 1139+ for 20-30% improvement, no dice.

going from 16XX-17XX to 2050-2100 sounds pretty fine to me wink.gif


so yeah when I see multiple FTWs failing to reach 2000 then I will blame either really bad luck or the FTWs or both wink.gif

It's the usual Oz rip-off rolleyes.gif - ordered mine from B&H.. ends up a lot cheaper. And at 1139+ .. it makes a lot more sense to pickup a binned 980Ti for 2/3rds of the price, or less second hand half year old.

I feel sorry for those slapped to the face customers who can buy TitanX-like performance for like 1/3 of its price biggrin.gif

Dude, if u don't like the price just don't buy it...its just pointless to post it over and over again.
