Considering that Pascal scales poorly when oc'd vs GCN scaling, the 480 has HUGE potential to come within 5% to 10% of a stock 980ti/1070 depending on the game. In the best case scenario that one of the higher leaked benchmark scores are true, this card could potentially break the GPU market.
I know, I know, lots of ifs
1266 isn't that much of a jump in clock speed for the new node, so either they are having trouble getting the clocks higher or they are leaving a lot of room for overclocking. We've heard rumors for both scenarios at this point, so I guess it's wait and see.
Edit: or the chip gets really power inefficient at higher clock speeds and they are limiting it due to the power draw.Edited by Forceman - 6/14/16 at 9:02pm
