And why would you? Every other card overclocks the same.

What I want to see is the performance gain

On the green team, you have to go back to the 8800GTX days to find something comparable to the 980ti. The GTX 4 and 5 series in particular ran hot and didn't see much extra on the top end.

It's a good 25% faster than the 980ti and it is obvious that a TI addition with more cores and faster memory will come out eventually. I would say enthusiasts are doing pretty good so far thumb.gif

What! The 7970/50 (I think +250-300Mhz) overclocked like a beast, and its why the 7970 ghz edition came out. The 7870/50 was a beast too (I think +300Mhz) and it also had the Ghz edition come out later.

Pascal chips are already fully overclocked and there isn't much left in the tank from every review we saw.. Sure there will be a few (rare) cherry picked golden cards that will overclock to 2.5ghz on LN2. But I think best case is water@2.2ghz at a cost

true but most of the 4xx cards were downclocked due to power and heat use .
560ti yeah that was a great clocker

260 were pretty sucky even the ones with i2c it was more cooling for those beside some custom cards.

anyone to complain about clocks from Pascal is really just grasping at nothing

its like so many cards have been able to hit 2ooo on the core

My GTX 560 Ti 448 was clocked @ 900mhz that's a 20% OC i think.

EDIT: i think the point is that Maxwell set a standard for OC and people are let down by the limits on Pascal.

? .. Who has the short memories again?

The R9 200 series get over 20%, and the 7000 series could get like 60% overclocks..

It's also "only" 10 - 15% faster on average OC to OC above a 980T, don't know where you're getting 25%. The misinformation is strong with your post.

Sounds like you all would've been much happier if NVIDIA had sold them at 1600MHz and then you'd all be like, "WOW, a stunning 600MHz overclock! What a winner NVIDIA has on their hands."

NVIDIA made it pretty clear...they're using 16nm FinFETs to help them push their stock clocks very high.

While the 2.5 GHz clock he achieved using LN2 cooling is already impressive

um...no thats actually really bad on Ln2. it should be like 8ghz on Ln2. that means Pascal is basically maxed OC already and its got a hard heat/frequency wall (not like a normal exponential curved wall).

now, time to see what AMD Polaris clocks like.

So ignorant consumers can be swayed by the bigger numbers even though clock for clock Pascal is inferior to Maxwell...

So many people holding out hope for 2.2 + overclocks on air with Pascal.. Is this the Fury X thread? tongue.gif

Clock for clock is irrelevant here. I'd love to see any Maxwell card hit 2GHz on air. Get outta here with that "argument", lol. Clock for clock is only relevant with Intel CPUs because from Sandy Bridge to Skylake, they all can hit the same frequencies.

I have absolutely ZERO idea why "clock for clock" is at all relevant comparing between GPU generations.

However, I agree that architecturally, NVIDIA did very little with Pascal. But, I'm buying frames, not architectures, lol.
