That's not true, considering a TITAN X can also be overclocked to 1500 in the best conditions, there is no way for that to be possible.

For benchmarks I can bump the vram up to +700 without issues but prefer games to not crash before a save.
As far as your score, there's a bottleneck somewhere. Your CPU isn't the bottleneck. It's faster than mine in Heaven. I am only overclocking all cores to 4 GHz. It's in an x16 3.0 configuration. Confirmed it is running at PCIe 3.0 x16 during load.
My DDR4 is in quad channel mode, running at 2400 MHz. It is 2800 MHz rated, but I have a 950 Pro SSD and I prefer it to run at full speed. Fiddling with the BCLK tends to slow it down.
My card is running at 2050 mhz in benchmark. My cpu is running at stock clock (4ghz-4.2ghz), DDR4 dual channel ram running at 3000 mhz (Ripjaws V rated at 3000mhz), and I only have a 850 EVO ssd. I haven't mess with any overclocking in my system yet as I don't have enough fans for proper airflow in the case yet. But I see a lot of people getting 16-17k on very similar set up on Firestrike but I only get about 15.4k
Power management profiles (both Windows and Nvidia cpl) could be part of it. Running the GPU at x8 instead of x16 could impact it a little bit as well. Not having proper airflow in the case could *definitely* be hurting you, considering the card will throttle the clocks down.

That's good to know, I guess. When the bridge is no longer a unicorn, I will possibly look into it. Still waiting to see what EK comes up with.Edited by mypickaxe - 7/10/16 at 12:29pm
